Thanks Barbara for the reply> Ok here goes all the information we have.
Ed Bowers does not appear on any census until 1900 Walker County, Georgia with wife, Emma L. Roberts. They were married in 1896 in Walker County and when the census was done in 1900 living in the household were Emma (Wife) Amanda (Sister in law)which we now know is actually Maudy and Kinsey (brother in law) and Ed and Emma's son Emmett.
Ed and Emma also appear on the 1910 census in Walker County, Georgia with Emma, Emmitt b.1898, George W. b. 1903, Vernie Mae Bowers b. 1905 and Fannie Bowers b. 1909. When the 1920 Census appear for Walker County, Georgia Ed is listed with Emma, Emmitt, George W., Vernie Mae, Fannie, Mary Bowers b. 1912 and Hattie G. Bowers b. 1916. Ed appears in 1900 as Edmon, 1910 he is listed as Edward, 1920 he is ED. Ed died in March of 1929 and of course is not listed on the census in Walker Georgia. His death certificate only states as Ed. Bowers birth location is NC Mother and Father listed as Don't know of course this information was given for the death certificate by his father in law, G.W. Roberts. Emma lived until 1953 and we have tracked most of the kids. It is the ED. that has us rattled or more like wondering if he was actually hatched. I appreciate any help you can provide in this matter. God Bless
