Orra Belle Richardson Bowden
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Aug. 25, 1879
Illinois, USA
Death: Jan. 21, 1921
Wayne County
Illinois, USA

The spelling of Orra's name is not certain. In various records her first name is spelled Orra, Irra, Any, Arrie and Oria. She was married to William Milton Bowden and they had at least five children: Herbert, Elva/Mae, Elsie, Clyde and Cuba. The LDS family search site death certificate transcription indicates that she is buried in Mount Pleasant which makes sense because her parents are here, but there is no record of her tombstone.

An obituary extracted from the Wayne County Press, 2/3/1921 is as follows:

Irra Belle Bowden, daughter of Addison Richardson, born 8/25/1879, d. 1/21/1921. Leaves a husband and five children, her parents.
