Zack Bowman and Vada Pack appear out of nowhere, marry, and vanish. I found them once on the census:

1930; Census Place: Dan River, Patrick, Virginia; Roll: 2454; Page: 9B; Enumeration District: 3; Image: 391.0; FHL microfilm: 2342188.

Zaeari Bowman, 34 (looks like 24 in the image) Va, Va, Va
(Zacari in the image; no telling how it should be spelled)
Vadie Bowman, 21, Va, Va, Va
R O Bowman, 5 Va, Va, Va
William C Bowman 3 and 6/12Va, Va, Va
R L Bowman 1 and 2/12, Va, Va, Va

Age @first marriage points to 1923, +/- 1.

I found three death records for his children:

North Carolina, Deaths, 1931-1994 (LDS)

Robie Jackson Bowman, 10 Sep 1924 - 14 Apr 1994
(R O in 1930)
Father: Zackari Bowman
Mother: Vada Pack

Clyde William Bowman, 19 Sep 1927 - 17 Jan 1994
(William C in 1930)
Father: Zack Bowman
Mother: Vada Pack

R.L. Jackson Bowman, 11 Feb 1929 - 29 Jan 1988
(R L in 1930)
Father: Zack Bowman
Mother: Vada Pack

This obit is the 4th. "EL" in th eobit is probably "R L" Jackson.

If anyone can add to this family I would appreciate it. I spent a couple of hours looking for Zachary and Vada in 1910, 1920, and 1940. Nothing. No birth, death or marriage records either.

I just found the family in the 1940 census in Ancestry.com. It is in the Dan River, Patrick County, 71-3 pg 12.

Zachariah is listed as Marick Hammon (age 33). I tried to correct it, but my computer froze up. The others are:
Viada (Vada) 32
R O 14
Claude 12
R L 11
May 9
Morly 7
Loveline 5 (Louveilly)

I checked the neighbors in the 1930 census and hoped no one moved in 1940 when I looked for them there. A helpful hint, especially when they spell the name so totally wrong.

If they had little post-it pictures here like they do on some bulletin boards, I'd award you a Sherlock Holmes deerstalker hat and three pipes. Thanks again!
