I am looking for some sort of written proof Temperance Bowman Martin, b. Feb. 12, 1831, Vermillion Co., Indiana; m. William K. Martin, Aug. 25, 1850; d. Oct. 30, 1893, Union, Floyd, Iowa, is the child of Catherine Cochran and Charles Bowman. I have an 1871 will which states she is Charles' daughter, but since Catherine died in 1851, she isn't mentioned.
Does anyone have anything, or know where I might be able to find written proof? Thank you! Lynda Chambers
