Henry Daniel "Bog" Bowman
Learn about removing the ads from this memorial...
Birth: Dec. 25, 1849
Death: Aug. 18, 1921

"Bog" was born to Jeptha G. "Gip" Bowman and China Yocum probably in Taney County, Missouri. He does appear on the 1850 census, he marries in 1869, therefore the date on his tombstone is incorrect. He had many wives (both legally and common law). His first legal marriage on Dec. 19, 1969 was to a Margaret E. To this union, one known son, Jefferson Bowman, was born. Bog and Margaret divorced two years later (and again in 1876). About this time, Bog was hired as farm help to assist the widow Mrs. Rachel Pinkley. To this common law union, two to four children were born, all given the surname of Pinkley instead of Bowman (two have been proven, one is uncertain, and one is unknown at this time). He fathered Nancy Elizabeth Pinkley and Darrathiel "Dora" Pinkley. He probably fathered Martha Jane Pinkley as well. He probably did not father Benjamin Franklin Pinkley, II, as he would have been just shy of 14.5 years old at the time of impregnating Rachel (remember, it's 1864, the nutrition standard of 1864, the rural Ozarks; and I consulted an M.D. who said it's 99.9% sure a boy of that age in that time period in that location could not do the deed). In 1875, the state of Missouri brought a court case against Bog and Rachel for adultery. Although the outcome is not clear, Bog and Rachel appear on the 1880 census together. On September 8, 1892, a marriage record for H.D. Bowman and Rosa B. Townsend can be found in Stone County, Missouri. No research has been done on Rosa. It is not known if they had children, if they divorced, or if she died. By 1904, Bog had met Miss Nancy Parilee "Parrot" Jones. They became common law man and wife and later married. They had three known children together: Kye Bowman, Mary Marie Bowman, and Charles Henry "Charlie" Bowman. Bog died in Pine Township of septicemia (blood poisoning). Information obtained from his death certificate.
