Finlay Family Genealogy Forum
I am looking for a connection to my gr-gr-grandmother Exa Maude Findlay. Exa or Exer was born in Texas in April
1862. 1880 Census shows the parents were born in Alabama. She married William P. Bowen. This family is found in the 1880 Census living in Robertson Co. Exa's sister, Mary Findlay is shown living with them. Also there is a Mack Findlay found 2 dwellings away. He is enumerated as a cousin to a Martha H. Eaves (It looks like a Coons to me but the transcriber gives it as Eaves. The last name is not very legible). In the 1900 census, Exa and William Bowen are found in Nacogdoches Co., Precinct #1. They had 9 children, 8 still living in 1900. Lula, Willie May, John, Jessie, Carrie, Annie, Marcus, Jennie V. & Cecil. Also, I have a picture of this family that was taken about 1896.
