I have Julia Bowen/Bohan & her family in my tree - although the connection is rather
loose. I have spend much time looking for my elusive relatives in Jackson County. FYI, a
fellow researcher (and Bowen decendent) told me that the census taker was a drunk who got
his job thru nepotism. You can't trust much of what is reported and sometime he
didn't even go into the field to get info...he'guessed.'
I add everyone I can in this county - just in the hopes of finding someone connected to my
Loughlin/Laughlin & Hyde/Hide famiies. Ellen You reminded me not to make assumptions.
I had thought Julia was perhaps widowed when I saw her with her parents in 1880. I think
she died in Chicago in 1893 but I can't find a source (in early years I wasn't so
good about sourcing). I check my notes.
