"Editor and writer Pearl Adoree (Shovestul) Rawling was born in 1894 in Pennsylvania. Her first husband was William T. Rowles, her second a Mr. Rawling, and her third, a Mr. Franklin. In 1926 while living in Akron, Ohio, she produced Our Own Magazine, under the nom de plume Dream Bird, as a venue where subscribers could feature their own writings. She also produced a booklet featuring her poems entitled First Buds in 1929." [OCLC entry 20121115].
Scarce poetry serial, we see just the LoC & Cleveland Public holdings in the Union List of Serials [3rd Edition], but find no reference to it on OCLC, though we do find Rawling as publisher of "The Current Stammer" [1931, a single holding], and as an author appearing in "First Buds" [1929, again, a single OCLC holding].
