      Florence Hunter is the mother of Florence Bowden Milne who was the author of the journal that is cited for the source of this information. It is likely that the daughter would have the correct information about her mother.

Bowden and two daughters, accessed 18 Feb 2011 (Reliability: 4), 18 Feb 2011.
      This census indicates that Florence Bowden is widowed. She divorced her husband, Robert Lee Bowden in 1899 and in 1902 filed court papers charging him with non-support. He was, in 1902, apparently still living and working for the railroad. So, her marital status should really say divorced.
