John William Koger's mother was a Bowman & he was married to the daughter of Hiram & Isabel (Hoblit)Bowman. Hiram Bowman's will was administered by John Koger, his son-in-law. John's wife, Elizabeth A. Bowman, was the twin sister of my great grandfather, Joshua. Her obit:
"The Kansas City Times" (Missouri) Monday, October 16, 1911

Mrs. Elizabeth KOGER, 77 years old, died at 8 o'clock Saturday night at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Ida M. FONES, 15 West Seventeenth Street. Her husband, J. W. KOGER, is a resident of the Soldiers' Home at Higginsville, Mo. Mrs. KOGER came to Kansas City two years ago from Blue Springs, Mo. Besides her husband, she is survived by two sons, Elmer KOGER, Eldorado Springs, Mo., and Frank W. KOGER and three daughters. Funeral services will be held at the home of Mrs. FONES at 2:30 o'clock this afternoon. Burial will be in Mount Washington Cemetery."
