Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in genealogy for many years. My father is from Kentucky and my mother from Louisiana. My husband's family is from Virginia. It has been and continues to be a very interesting journey to watch the family histories unfold.

My interests include private investigation, solving mysteries/puzzles and computers. You can see how genealogy is a wonderful fit for me!

Please feel free to use my photos I have taken of your family headstones on other websites of your choice. It isn't necessary to give me the credit for taking the pictures. I only hope to fulfill your needs for your family genealogy.

I will gladly transfer management of a memorial to you as long as the person is not a member of my family also.

Laurine Ellis Memorial# 159491651
Thank you for the effort you gave to try and locate Laurine's tombstone in South Plains cemetery. I had walked the cemetery myself, but thought I may have missed it since I was not looking specifically for her at the time. I wonder now if I have the wrong information about her burial. (her husband is buried in Georgia). I truly appreciate your efforts to help me. Billy Walker, Jacksonville, Florida

RE: William Stanford
It very well might be the same person with the footstone or last name stone missing. I would very much like to see it if possible. Also, thank you so much for taking the photos for me on the ones I requested. I appreciate the time and effort. Thanks, Anne

Thank you so much for the information on Grace. She is my Grand Aunt by marriage. Her husband William was my grandfather Ora Warner's brother. I wasn't fortunate to meet any of them. I've accepted the edits! I appreciate it! Are you related?

Family Jonvaux-Wucherpfenig-Noblitt
I'd noticed some informations you had given about some members of these families. Are you connected to them ?
I'm making researches about French families who had emigrated to the States with the Icarian members (cabetist) in the years 1848- 1860.
For instance, some families from Troyes Jacquin, Cottet, Jonvaux. Two daughters of Antoine Aimé JONVAUX, Irma and Laura Josephine gave birth to children and you have put some pics and informations about their decendants.
Do you know if the family Noblitt has kept some documents, letters from their ancestors ? I'm connected to some members of the Cottet-Jonvaux roots.

Julius T. Bowman - MIA
I'm sure you already have this info, but just in case, this is what I found tonight.

Musa divorced Julius on 24 Jul 1937, after 12 years of marriage. His occupation is listed as Real Estate. The divorce was not contested. He is living in Harrisonburg.

In the 1930 census, he is listed as married, but living with parents & grandparents. Since he had a child born in 1931 and in 1932, I assume this was a temporary separation. She is not living with her parents, and I can't find a 1930 census record for her. Since their son Clifford was born in 1931 in Fluvanna, Virginia, she had to be in "the area."

In the 1940 census, Musa is listed as divorced. I can't find a census record for Julius. I'd assume he was still alive at this time because of her listings in the (virginia) city directories:

1939 - she is listed as "Mrs."
1941 - she is listed as "Mrs."
1942 - she is listed as "widow"
1950 - she is listed as "widow."

"IF" the directories info is actually one year behind, then she would have been a widow as early as 1941. If the directories were timely, then he died in 1942.

Looking at DC directories, this is what I found:
1939: working in antiques, no spouse listed.
1948: no listing

I couldn't find any military records for Julius Sr. which makes me believe he died before draft cards were required, as he was still "young" enough to at least be documented as a potential draftee.

The only info I can find that is counter productive to the info above is family obits, which list the following dates:

1935: Sister, Julius listed as survivor
Dec. 5, 1943: Mother, lists his name only.
Feb. 9, 1946: Father, Julius listed as survivor living in DC

I hope some of this helps you find Julius! Might be worth researching the DC papers for obits and directories for earlier addresses. If he was a prominent business man, then there might have been a big article on him.

Also, just because he is not listed in F.A.G. doesn't mean he is not in the same cemetery as his parents. You might have to contact the cemetery and ask then to check records.

Good luck!

Best, Robin.
