Obituary: "Again death is a visitor and this time has snatched from our midst the husband, son and brother, Martin Obid Bowman. He was the third son of Mr. and Mrs. George Bowman. Martin was born near Shannondale, Indiana June 16, 1882. Martin Bowman was united in marriage January 8, 1905, to Catherine Elizabeth Alvord of Ladoga. And to this union were born nine children, four of whom have preceded their father to the heavenly home. He departed this life after a short illness of influenza, February 9, 1920, at the age of 37 years, 7 months and twenty three days. He leaves to mourn his loss, his wife, five children, Lillie age 12 years, Eva 10 years, Hugh 8 years, Elizabeth 4 years and little Owen Edward 7 weeks and he also leaves to mourn him a father, four brothers and two sisters, Fletcher and Henry of near Lizton, Ind.; Newton of Hillsboro, Ind.; Luther of Ladoga; Mrs. Carrie Moreland of Barnard and Mrs. Cora Burkett of Visalia. He was united to the Brethren Church in 1904. He was a most devoted father and husband and there was nothing too good for him to do for his family." The February 1920 influenza epidemic that took his life also claimed his mother, his sister Carrie, Carrie's husband Willie and his sister Cora's husband, Asa Burkett.

Note: There is no tomb stone for Martin Bowman or his four infant children buried in the Stoner Cemetery but family tradition says they are buried close to the graves of Martin's aunt, Nancy (Bowman) Barber and her husband John
