I took my first baby steps in a graveyard, the Smith Cemetery on White Oak Mountain, W.Va. That explains a lot.|

Hi, Just posted the information you sent me for Benny Canady Memorial.

What an amazing article on Mytle Stevens Thomas! Thank you for sharing. Surely puts "flesh" onto the bones of a memorial when one finds articles like that one and takes the time to post them. I sent the parental links for sisters Alma and Minnie..I hope they are accepted. It is , somehow, fulfilling to reunite a family, even in death. My Mom and Dad had a profound respect for cemeteries. We used to visit our relatives graves on Sunday afternoons, and even have old home movies of one trip to an old old old cemetery in Ohio. I guess the "seed" was planted in me early too.
Cheers! and continue the good work.

Your info on Alma Stevens seems to fit with her being the wife of Newton Bowman ( their marriage records lists her surname as Stevens and not stephens). sometimes when i try to follow a genealogy trail, i feel like i have fallen down a rabbit hole! Makes my head spin. I know my own family had a propensity of naming everyone Mary, William, John or Sarah..so hard to keep the generations distinct and separate. I believe what you have found on the Alma G. Stevens, leads me to believe she is Newton's wife and the year of birth on the Alma G. Bowman memorial is in error by 10 years.
Many thanks! Let me know if you find anything else.

I reocgnized Alma could not have given birth at age 11..LOL...I have found a lot of dating errors in entries by volunteer lovemeep. I found the marriage record for Newton Wallace Bowman and Alma "Stevens"..married March 26, 1901 in Kanawha Co. WV , M.F.Compton performed the ceremony. both Newton and Alma's ages were listed as 21 years old. He was born in 1879 ( meaning his birthday would have been AFTER the month of March). This would have made Alma Stevens ( ie Stephens) born in 1880 (1901- 21= 1880)
Hope this helps. Please let me know what your take on this is. I appreciate the questioning... i had already sent a correction to lovemeep on Alma's DOB. Please let me know if you have any other infomation, as it is greatly appreciated!

It was my honor to take the photos. I was looking for my G-Grandmother and figured I'd take photos of the ones that were left.
