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.
