Thomas C. BOWEN b. 2 Dec 1833 AL. and wife Loveann DESMOND 1839- Feb. 1904; were in Bosque Co. on 1880 cen. This is the last census I can find son's John D.BOWEN 1867 Franklin Co.TX. and William Marion BOWEN 1871 Hopkins Co. Both may of died in Bosque Co.? In 1885 family is in Erath Co. 1886 in Brown Co. Can not locate T.C. BOWEN in TX. cen. 1860 yet he should be there. Looking for other AL to TX Bowen's.
