Oliver Barrows owned the Barrows Hotel in San Diego. A codicil in his grandmother's will stated that if he had no direct heir then the hotel would go to the city.
On December 16, 1956, during a blizzard on a highway between Fort Worth and Dallas there was a 23-car accident. Mary Barrows and their 17-month-old daughter, Margaret Ellen, were in one of those cars. Mary died, and nobody knew what happened to the daughter.
