Subject: [IADAVIS-L] John and Margaret Mowery//Brown,Stowers
I am seeking information on the following family:
John Mowery (Mollery/Mowary/Maurer) married Margaret _______ and lived
in Davis CO. Iowa. Their daughter was Martha Mowery who was born ca.
1861 in Davis CO. She died in October 1936 in Perry CO. Illinois.
Martha was married twice: Elsworth Brown and David A. Stowers--she
married him 1885 in Eldon, Iowa. Martha's Brown children were Flora (b.
May 18, 1885 in Davis CO. d. Sept. 27, 1972 in Keosauqua, Iowa.
husbands were Oscar Hootman and Henry McClure), Retta, Edd, and Clarence
Elmer (b. July 21, 1882 d. Feb. 15, 1920. wife was Julia Zachaw). The
Eldon, Iowa area was a place of early settlement as far as I can tell.
In Martha's obituary it says that her father and mother (John and
Margaret) helped to start the Christian Church there.
Martha's Stowers children were William Albert (b. Oct. 24, 1887 d. May
14, 1907 in Carlin, NV), Mary Ruth (b. Oct. 5, 1893 in Piedmont, MO. d.
Dec. 31, 1995 in Mascoutah, Illinois. her husbands were Cyrus Helvey,
William Witte, Charlie Shepard, Aaron Emanuel, and Guy Batterson), and
Mark ( died in Cheyenne, Wyoming in 1970. wife was Pearl______).
Martha and David Stowers spent years in the Lee CO. Iowa area.
