Lillian Almedia SIKES b. 10 Nov. 1864, Spragueville, Jackson Co., IA;
d. 14 Sep. 1887, Centerville, Jackson Co., IA. She married John
Bower Feb. 1884 and they had two daughters, Lillie Edith b. 1884 and
Elva Sarah b. 1886. One or both of these daughters may have made
their home with their Aunt and Uncle, Mary Edith and Emanuel
Washington Detwiler in Vinton, Benton Co., IA. Is there anyone in
Jackson Co. with connections to the Sikes or Bower families?
