Byron Ector BOWEN, b 28 Dec 1926, Tx; d 30 Mar 1999. He is found in the 1930 census living with his aunt and uncle (Ector F. REAVES & Hazel Jane BOWEN REAVES. Also in the household is his grandfather, Byron BOWEN (1866-1948) and B.A. (Byron Afton) BOWEN b ca 1909, TX, d 1985, Potter Co., TX. Byron Ector BOWEN shows up in the 1940 census of Potter Co., living with the same aunt & uncle but is listed as "son". Meanwhile, Byron Afton BOWEN has gone off to Shanghai, China and married Gertrude Alice BULLDEATH on 25 Nov 1936 in Shanghai. They had two daughters 1) Joyce Eve BOWEN and 2) Katheryn Mae BOWEN. Gertrude Alice BULLDEATH BOWEN died in Amarillo 21 May 1999. What I'm trying to figure out is who was Byron Ector BOWEN's mother --- Byron Afton BOWEN's first wife? Is it possible to find the marriage records of Amarillo ca 1925?
