Minnie Bilderback Cowan
Hi Emily,

I just discoverd this page about my great great grandfather Charles Henry Bilderback. I noticed that Minnie's date of death has to be wrong (sorry) I know I have the info on her death somewhere and I know it wasn't in the 1800's as stated in the information on Charles Henry Bilderback.

I am Minnie's great grand daughter, My mom Carolyn, is Minnie's granddaughter, she was born in 1939 and remembers Minnie being a part of her life. My mom's dad is Emil, Minnie's youngest son. We of course called Emil PaPa, but he was going by Joseph Raymond Cowan by then.

I am also curious if you would happen to know anything of Alfred Cowan, Minnie's oldest son. It seems like the family didn't all come together later in life, my Mom has no recollection of ever hearing about Alfred, altho she knew Alma, Etna, and Ira, and of course Minnie.

I know all of Minnie and Charlie Cowan kids were taken away by the court and put into juvenile facilities very young in their lives.

My paternal Grandma had a neighbor named Al Morris, in Napa California in the 1960's time frame, he claimed I was related to him through my Papa, Emil (Joseph Raymond Cowan). As I think back on it, Al did look much like my Papa and I am wondering if there is a connection.. I see the Morris name coming up in my Bilderback searches but not really sure what the connection is...

I have been dabbling a bit with geneology and haven't been back on ancestry. com in a long time but it looks like the Bilderback family name has been pretty much researched.

Any information you can provide on Albert Cowan, maybe later Morris would be greatly appreciated!

RE: Bio information on Mattie Morris

I was wondering if you would like me to transfer Mattie's memorial to you. I would be happy to transfer some of the Morris family to you.

RE: Thomas Dow Morris
Your welcome, Emily. I posted a msg on the Jasper County Genealogy msg board on any info they might have on Thomas. Maybe they have info on why he was admitted.

Thomas Dow Morris
Hello Emily, I have requested a photo of Thomas's headstone in Fair Acres Cemetery, Missouri. Also asked to have them email a copy to me for my files. If I receive it I will send you a copy. Hopefully they will post it to his site on find a grave.
