Thank you for the suggested edits on Newell K. BOWDEN. I didn't realize his connection to the Morris Malachi - are you kin to those folks? Newell's wife (first wife, apparently) Carrie Love HAMER is a cousin of mine - her mother Frances Margaret (PARKER) HAMER was the sister of my gg-grandmother Mary (PARKER) MILLER. Just curious about your connection - thanks again. John in Columbus, GA

RE: William Oscar Bowden # 65741446
I have a paid annual subscription to the site It includes the Columbus papers, the Macon papers, and some others in Georgia (but not Atlanta, I think), as well as in other states, of course. I have thought about also subscribing to one of the other sites, like or Fold3, but I find most of what I need on the service I currently have. If you have some specific look-ups you need done, I would be glad to check on them. - John

RE: William Oscar Bowden # 65741446
Hi, Barb - thank you for your message and the information you sent. I have checked on this, and I can assure you that William Oscar BOWDEN (1867-1916) who is buried at Pierce Chapel Cemetery is indeed the son of Morris Malachi & Rachel (SIMMONS) MORRIS, Sr., as postulated in my memorial. In the first place, the account of his funeral and burial includes a list of surviving siblings, which are the other children of that couple (I have added an excerpt to the biographical section). Having confirmed that, I considered the possibility that the Mr. Will BOWDEN, son of Mr. M. M. "Ki" BOWDEN, who was reported drowned might actually be the son of Morris Malachi BODWEN, Jr. (he being another son of M. M. & Rachel) - until I found the following: "MR. BOWDEN ALIVE; HE RETURNS HOME: Has Been in Richmond, Va. Says He is Surprised at the Reports of His Drowning. // Mr. W. O. BOWDEN, who was reported drowned at Tybee last August, turned up at his home in this county last night, safe and sound. He came down on last evening's Southern train from Atlanta, and was talked to by a number of Columbus gentlemen aboard. He stated that he had been ill several weeks in Richmond, Va. He said that he had not heard the report of his death until he reached Atlanta yesterday, en route to Muscogee county. . ." It goes on for some length from there - Columbus (GA) Enquirer-Sun newspaper, Friday, 23 NOV 1900, p. 1. I got a good laugh out of it. I hope this clears up the confusion, and I do very much appreciate your sending me the item, or I probably would not have discovered this. Best wishes - John

His wife was Charity Curtis and she married about 1909 Albert Clark. His young son was Delos.

Hi! just a note...I have just posted Jessies photo per your request (AND found Norman Yates Stoddard) immediately next to her. I am posting a photo (IF after I check he doesn't have one)

PLEASE NOTE the location you have for Jessie is incorrect. I put the right one on the photo page:)

Happy Hunting:)
