Zavala County
        BOWEN and ROSS families. William R. BOWEN and his wife, Mary, came from Bates Co, MO to Williamson Co, TX about 1869, but had moved to Zavala Co by 1880. William died in Batesville in 1934 aged in his 90's. His daughter, Martha Helen BOWEN, married Jacob Samuel ROSS about 1884. Jake ROSS and his brother, John, who was also in Batesville, had come from Alabama.  Their grandfather, James ROSS, died in Commanche Co, TX in 1868.
        The BOWENs had several other children who I have been unable to trace, including George T. who was in Reeves Co, TX in 1900, Ida, Indiana, William, Levi, Eli, and Robert Lee.  The ROSS children lived in Batesville, Kerrville, and Oklahoma.

BOWEN
        Several children of Thomas and Mary (STONE) BOWEN were in Montgomery, Warren, Lincoln, and Audrain Cos from the 1830's to the 1870's. One child, George A. BOWEN, moved to Bates Co, MO about 1857 and died there soon afterwards. His wife was Ann M. POWELL. Another son, Benjamin, married a Lydia POWELL, and I am trying to learn whether these two POWELL women were related.  One of George A. BOWEN's sons, Fydell (or Fidella), who was in Webster Co, MO in 1870, wound up in Tulare Co, CA. Another of George's sons, William Reece, married in Bates Co about 1859 or 60, to a Mary whose last name I have not discovered. Another of Thomas and Mary's sons was Reece BOWEN, a common Bowen name which leads me to wonder how Thomas Bowen might be related to Moses and Rebecca (REES) Bowen, who seem to have started the tradition of Reece as a given name.


FAGG
        I am also looking for descendants of James B. FAGG who died in 1864 in Henry Co, MO. He was born in VA about 1795.
