In Reply to: THOMS/MOWERY/SMITH abt 1848 by mike of 215

Mike, my great grandparents in the Mowery family were James Richard Mowery and Susan "Susie" E. Thomas (it also may be spelled either Thomes or Thom). On their marriage license it appears to be either Thomas or Thomes. James Richard was the second child of Mathias and Malinda (Giddens) Mowery. He was born December 24, 1839 in Red River County, TX; died October 25, 1881 and was buried in the Giddens (Concord) Cemetery in Red River County, TX. He married Susan on March 31, 1868 in Red River County. They were the parents of four children: Lucinda "Cindy" (named after an aunt). She was born 1871 and married Jim Roberts, they lived in the Hopewell community of Red River Co.; Luther Monroe
(my grandfather) was born December 8, 1873, married Elmira Talley December 29, 1893. He died October 20, 1955. She was born September 30, 1876 and died June 19, 1947. Both are buried in the Denison Cemetery at Idabel, OK.; A second daughter of James Richard and Susan was named Francis. She married Bud Monkhouse. A second son was killed during World War I.
