My Grandmother Nevirtia Bowman born 6/28/1902 Mill Creek Illinois, Pope County, Her father was John Laurey Bowman, also born in Illinois in 1882, married Aggie Justice 6/28/1894 in Union Co. Illinois, John's father was William J. Bowman born March. 1854 in Illinois married Amanda J. Bridges in 1873 Pope County Illinois, I am trying to find the father of William. I think it may be Ediston Bowman born 1824 in Illinois and married a Sarah? I found them in the 1850 census, they had the following children: Margaret, John Benjamin, Ediston C., and William J., any information would be greatly appreciated.
