Paul Sowers (Commodore P's son) was married twice

Paul Sowers was married twice. First to Hannah Turner in Ohio on 1-28-1855,then to Polly Shipley in McDonald Co., Missouri on 12-18-1881. No children with Polly. I found this information in Paul's Civil War pension paperwork. I am still looking for Polly's maiden name (she was also married before to A.H. Shipley) Hannah died in Missouri in 1881. Paul Sowers died 3-27-1896 in Colorado. He was killed when he was run over by a wagon that he fell off of.
Paul Sowers was also wounded (shot in the toe on the right foot)on July 3, 1863 at Gettysburg, PA. He also had some kind of throat problem. I am still studying the pension paperwork at this time and researching any leads I get.
