Emma Smith Bowman Linda Copus provided the following obituary of Thursday, January 26, 1956: Archie and Parker preceded their mother in death, so were not listed in the obituary. Some children are listed in the obituary but are not listed as Sloan Bowman's descendants. Either my list is incomplete, or they may have been from another marriage.
