Re: Joseph and James Daniel Bowman
Some of the information I have was obtained from another source before I started researching. This is my best friend's family and I was going by some other information. The story was brought down by the family about Joseph and his wife dying in the war. However I did find a Joseph Bowman on the 1860 census with his wife Catherine and son, Daniel at 6 years of age.I had looked at other census records but couldn't find any information.
This Bowman family comes from Boone County, Arkansas.James D. and wife, Dory P., are on the 1880 and 1900 census in Boone County,Arkansas. The 1900 census shows the daughter,Shaby E., which is the ancestor of my friend. She had a son,Rudy Joe Bowman. She never married the father and lived with her parents until she did marry. James and Dory had 9 children. They moved to Oklahoma some time in the early 50's. Hope this helps. I will look into the census you found.Thanks. Karen Thompson
