I am trying to locate information on my family that came from KENTUCKY (county unknown) and settled in RALLS COUNTY between 1837 and 1839 and later moved to HANNIBAL in MARION CO.
In the 1850 census I have:
BOWEN, MILDRED A. born c 1808 Kentucky Widow
EPHRAIM P. born 1836 Kentucky
JOHN born c1839 Missouri
In the 1860 census Mildred is shown with the two boys, Ephraim and John and also a daughter, ANNA who was born 1850-51. So it is obvious that Mildred's husband was still alive in 1850.
The surname is often spelled as BOWEN, BOWN and BOUNDS.
Thanks for any information that anyone can send my way. I am looking for the name of Mildred's husband and the county that they came from in Kentucky. I have hit dead end of locating any information.
