Etta Owens Bowen

  • Birth 3 Jul 1884 North Carolina, USA
  • Death 2 Apr 1918 Cleveland County, North Carolina, USA
  • Burial Shelby, Cleveland County, North Carolina, USA
  • Memorial ID 8211740

Much is unknown about Etta. The informant on her death certificate thought her mother's name was "Liner Bowen", but didn't know her father's name. He/she knew she was born in North Carolina, but not the location. Other records indicate her mother was Julia, and her son Woodrow's death certificate gave her maiden name as Waters & daughter Victoria's states her Dad's name was Fate Waterson, so it would appear Etta had a 3rd husband for a short period of time.

On 26 Dec 1909 she married John M. Cogdell in Cleveland County, NC.

They were the parents of two children - Victoria Elzoria and Zinnie.

On 10 Nov 1912 she married Onnie A Bowen in Cleveland County, NC.

They were the parents of two children - Woodrow Wilson & Gertha.

Etta's life was short as she passed away from bronchopneumonia a side effect of measles on the 2nd day of April in 1918.

Etta was buried in a plot that today has no marker and Onnie reared her children.

Let's not forget...
