Listed below are all the siblings of Rebecca Ann Bowen, including her, in birth order:

His Death Certificate, dated June 1, 1930, states he is interred in Bulloch County however as of this writing his grave has not been found, and a findagrave.com Memorial Record has been established by a descendant in the findagrave.com record in Middleground Primitive Baptist Church Cemetery (in this writer’s opinion it would be appropriate to place a Stone Memorial there next to his Mother Headstone monument, or next to his father’s monument at Bowen-Dekle Cemetery, Candler County, Georgia. The search is still on for his burial site).

3) - Rebecca Ann Bowen, b. 01 Apr 1855, d. 12 Nov 1937, married John Malcolm Warnock (1851-1941), both are interred at Middleground Primitive Baptist Church Cemetery, Bulloch County, Georgia.

Unknown), burial unknown, and (2), a widower and CSA Veteran, Peter Cone Richardson (1839-1918), buried in the Peter Cone Richardson Cemetery, Bulloch County, Georgia next to his first wife. Margaret had one child with her first husband and one child with her second husband.

6) - Silas Everett Bowen, b. 09 Feb 1862, d. 20 Sep 1931, His Death Certificate, dated December 30, 1931 by Registrar, Mrs. D. C. Jones, states his place of internment as Trinity Cemetery on 21 Sep 2014. An existing Trinity Cemetery, in Bulloch County, Georgia at the time of his death has not yet been found by this writer as of October 28, 2014. The search is still on for his burial site, however his direct descendants may decide to erect a Memorial Monument in a Bulloch County Cemetery. It this occurs, this biography will be updated accordingly.
