Bowles and Massey
Posted by: Jerry Wright (ID *****7562) Date: March 13, 2010 at 11:22:00

I have now found some information on my grandparents, John Alonzo Bowles and Ada Massey. I wonder if anyone has these people in their lines and am really looking for some pictures of them and their relatives. My mom was Wilma Jean Bowles, and on her father's side was John Alonzo Bowles b. 1879 and his dad Alfred Bowles b. 1840 married to Emma Mayberry. On my mom's mothers side, my grandmother, Ada Massey Bowles, b. 1898 d. 1969, her father was Robert Emmett Massey b. 1877 d. 1953, his father was Emmett Stowe Massey b. 1832 d. 1908, his father was Abner Massey b 1805 d. 1845, and his father was Ebenizer Massey b. 1778; John Alonzo Bowles' first wife was Bessie I think, and they had several kids. Ada remarried after John died, to an Odey Mitchell, and someone names Blankenship. There was also a son, Sanford, listed in the census, with John and Ada, and I wonder who his "real" parents were...as dates and family stories don't match. So if any of this rings a bell, and if you have ANY pictures I would greatly appreciate it.
