Birth: Sep. 18, 1881
Vigo County
Indiana, USA
Death: Sep. 8, 1891
Vigo County
Indiana, USA

Bessie May was almost the forgotten Bowen. Her grave is separated from her prents by a few feet. She lived between the time of any census. There was a brief mention in the family bible with her first name, a day, and a month. No year was given and no relationship. There have been multiple transcriptions of West Lawn and some have missed her completly. Some have only been able to read a name and a death date. After careful cleaning of her headstone, her birthdate and realtionship became visible.
