These are the details from the Bethesda cemetary: I assume the two other males are Zacka's sons?

BOWEN,              Samuel R.              2-27-1861       7-2-1911
              Z.D.                     6-3-1829       5-31-1912
              Josephine              1-16-1838       12-5-1902
              (w/o Z.D. Bowen)
              Charles W.              7-10-1859       1-29-1861

Zacka's Civil War Record:

Bowen, Zachariah D. -- Private - February 1, 1863.
Transferred to Company K, 54th Regiment Georgia Infantry
September 28, 1864. Pension records show he was home on sick
furlough close of war. Paroled, Augusta, Georgia May 24,
1865.

1830 census:
Wendell Bowen, aged 40-50, with one son under 5, two girls under 5, two 5-10, 1 10-15, and wife aged 20-30. He was not in the 1820 census. There was also a Samuel Bowen resident in Jefferson County in 1827 who won the land lottery.

Hope this helps
