I am assisting my 84-year-old husband, Dane Bowen,of Strawn, texas, in doing research on his father's family. We would like to be contacted by the descendants of the first wife of my husband's grandfather, Daniel Harrison Bowen.
Daniel H. Bowen's first wife was Kitty McElyea. They lived in Erath County, Texas near Lingleville. Kitty McElyea was born in 1873. On December 25, 1888 she married Daniel H. Bowen. She died in 1891 in the church next to Mt. Zion Cemetery, 6 miles north of Lingleville. She was sitting next to a metal stove in the church. Ligntning struck the church and went through the stove into her foot, killing her instantly.
We would be glad to exchange family information. We would like to know who were the parents and grandparents of Kitty McElyea and where they lived before they came to Texas.
