Margaret Caroline Bates Cowan was the daughter of James McKnight Bates (1839-1914) and Sarah J. Yandle (1843-1916). Her husband, Fielden Ira Cowan (1859-1932), is buried in Mammoth Springs, Fulton County, Arkansas.
Margaret came to Oklahoma, probably following her husband's death, to live with her daughter, Laura Rachel Bowman (1897-1991) who married William Thomas Bowman (1892-1952). They ran a grocery store in Arlington.
Margaret's gravesite is located along the south fence of the cemetery. There is no headstone.
