Hi Kim - Thanks for replying. I haven't been working on the family history for about 1 year, so it great to hear from you. It made me want to get back working on it again. To answer your question about Hovey's widow Jennie; I do have a couple of things I recently found out. Jennie's birth surname was REEVES, not Horn. Where I picked up Horn, I don't know! I found this out from a cousin I didn't know I had. He lives in Oregon, and his name is Rudolph Bowman. He emailed me the Family tree from Ancestry.com. This shows Hovey C. Bowman (1853-1886) and Jennie Reeves (1852-1920). The date of marriage was 10/25/1873. The family group sheet from Ancestry.com indicated they had 3 children, Edna Mae (born 1879), Rudolph (born 1882), and Bertram Hovey (1884-1866..he was my grandfather). I don't kknow the date, but, Jennie remarried after Hovey died. His name was George J. Roberts. In addition to the 3 children she brought into this new family, together with George they had a son, James b. 1892 and a daughter, Helen, b. 1895. I hope this info gives some insight into my side of the family. Best wishes, Joy
