I don't have J. R. Bowen Ainsworth in my database yet.I have not had time to search the 1900 censuses in that area. But ifyou do have the time, one possibility for his parents would be Tandy I. Ainsworth & Ida Vinson.They were married November 24, 1877 in Columbia Co., AR.I do not have any children listed for them. Tandy was born and died in Union Co.I have his line well documented. He was a grandson of David A. & Elizabeth Garrett Ainsworth. I might be able to get to the archives in a few weeks but my husband has been sick and my trips there are limited right now. If you can search the 1900 census, I'm sure that you will find J. R. Bowen as a child with one of David's grandsons' families. My 2nd great grandfather was a J. R. Ainsworth and it stood for James Richard. David A. was his father's brother. James, John and Joseph were frequently used names in this group of Ainsworths.To a lesser extent they also used Jesse.
