I am also a Bowden/Keathley researcher and am hoping you can help me out here. I am a descendant of Matilda (Garner) and Samuel? Bowden but have had no luck verifying this marriage.
Matilda appears in the will of Nathan Garner Sr but it looks to be spelled Metilda and as of the date of the will her married name was Dail but she isn't living with her husband (this portion of the will is crossed out). Will is dated 11 March 1857.
As of the 1850 census she is living with her father and daughter Hepsey Bowden. Basil J Bowden (my ggg grandfather) who I believe was Matilda's son was living with her brother Nathan Garner Jr.
Basil J married Mary Keathley daughter of Mark Keathley and Elizabeth Pipkin in the 1860s before moving to Hernando, FL.
I would appreciate any information you would be willing to share or any advice on where I should be looking. Feel free to contact me directly.
