There is a Hancock Cem. in Purves, Erath Co.
Elizabeth Ruyle/Hancock is said to be buried next to
husband Benjamin Timothy Hancock, I need a date
of death for her. (born 1818) Their daughter
Matilda C. Hancock (1844-1892) is said to be
buried in Stevenville, Erath Co. she died
25 Sept 1892. Where buried?
Matilda Hancock married Henry Welch and had
daughter Melvina Vashi Welch (1869-1928) who married in Erath Co.
5 July 1885 James Samuel Bowen. She is buried in
Brownwood Co. he in Tulare, CA.
I am trying to understand why James S. Bowen was in
Erath Co. perhaps working on the railroad? In 1880 he &
parents Thomas C. & Lovann Desmond/Bowen were in Bosque Co.
and 1900 in Montaque Co. Looking for others researching
these surnames. Donna <bowjay(a)foothill.net>
