I have determined that my great-grandfather, William H. Bowlin, married to Mary Bussey in 1885 and I think he and Mary were divorced around 1900. He was living in Hardin County, Sour Lake around 1906 through at least 1920. He had two sons, Herbert and Elmore. Elmore died at the age of 32 in 1923 and Herbert died in 1925 at the age of 36. He is listed as a blacksmith in the 1910 and 1920 census and living with his cousins, Melinda and Ola (mother and daughter) Hargraves or Hargroves.

Any information that anyone could provide would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
