      B.C. Kearney age 28 years, born in Boyd Co., KY
      R.L. Bowden, age 35 years, born in Greenbrier Co.
      Both are listed as unmarried prior to this marriage. However, if this is our Robert Bowden, then that statement is not true. Also, Ms. Kearney has a child so she may have also been married before.
