RE: William Bowen
Allen
I did not research William Fleming Bowen but I found a web site that may be useful to you. The address is ESVA.net
To find that site I used the Safari search engine and typed in
"Zipporah Bowen". The site says William F Bowen was born
9-16-1761 in Worcester County, Maryland. He and Zipporah Burbage were married 1-31-1803. The site lists seven children, born from 1805 to 1815 or later (the last child's DOB is unknown).
Evidently, William died by 1815 because Zipporah and Risdon
Mumford (my great-great grandfather) were married
1-17-1816.
I did not find where either William or Risdon are buried.
If you have a problem logging on to the web site or have other questions that I might answer, my email address is:
Ljmumford@verizon.net.

RE: Zipporan Mumford Bowen
No birth dates have been located for Zipporah. The contributor that placed her on Find A Grave has done research I am pretty sure and so have I, but we have found nothing at this time that gives DOB. Yes, I have "visited" with Don several times. Good luck on further family research!! Pam

RE: Bowen cemetery
Yes, Blanchard is not far away, I was there Sunday. It is in a clump of trees in a timber, most stones are surprisingly in good shape, but some have gotten broken and one is impossible to read, don't know who it belongs to. At least you could walk around and look at those stones and not fall over a lot of broken branches and weeds. Being in the middle of where it was seemed to be walked around by critters and is owned by hunters from Kansas City or St. Louis, but I am sure the grass and weeds will grow throughout the summer, but at least it was not in the terrible shape that Bowen is in--just takes a little walking to get into the cemetery area, not bad. Being owned by hunters they have travel paths that get you pretty close by ATV, or if dry a pickup truck, where you can get through and opening with out getting beat up by thorn trees and stickers. I know that because we found that opening AFTER we wandered through the "forest" to get to the cemetery. Now I know better how to get in that cemetery. LOL

RE: Bowen cemetery
Not close, but in the same county. We have a construction business that does tile outlet terraces. We were contacted by another contractor to lay the tile for him on the farm he was contracted to build terraces on where Bowen Cemetery is. I had to help get tile and equipment moved to the jobsite, so I was there with plenty of time to visit the cemetery. It is so sad, fallen leaves, fallen tree limbs, many fallen stones, some were a little better shape in 1966, but according to the late Junior Wilkerson notes it was not in good shape then either. :(

Your great grandfather, George Boyd Long.
I noticed that you created the memorial for your great grandmother, Mary (Barr) Long, but do not manage the memorial for your great grandfather, George Boyd Long. Since his memorial is within the guidelines that Find A Grave has for a transfer you can request that his memorial be transfered to you by sending an edit from his memorial to the creator of his memorial. You will need to mention your relationship to George Boyd Long. Just trying to be helpful. Hope you are able to get this memorial transfered to you. Have a nice day,

Dear Mr. Long,

As a suggestion to help you in the future, when adding photos of a person, be sure to indicate portrait at the right hand side of your screen. Failure to do so will indicate a photo of the grave monument or marker.

This is easy to correct. Just go back into the add a photo and make your correction. If this fails, remove your photo and re-enter marking the appropriate catagory.

If I can help further, let me know. Thank you for being a member of Find A Grave. Have a great day.

Judith
