Ruth,

Thanks for the Bowden marriage info.

For those of you who may be wondering . . .

The marriage information for Martha & Matthew can be found as follows:
"Martha R. Bowden and Matthew Maddox. mar. 24 Dec 1835" at
http://www.rootsweb.com/~gamonroe/marr_bride.html ( submitter: Gordon
Kirkemo )

I don't have Martha R. Bowden or Matthew Maddox in my data base as of yet.
So if any one knows their parents & siblings names, please let me know.

The marriage information for Mary & Thomas can be found as follows:
"Mary Jane Bowden and Thomas McCommon, mar. 11 Jul 1844" at
http://www.rootsweb.com/~gamonroe/marr_bride.html (no e-mail link)

I have Mary Jane Bowden & Thomas McCommon in my database. (see my site links
below)

Also . . .

Mary Jane Bowdoin (Bowden) is the daughter of William Bowdoin & Martha
Smith. Mary was born abt. 1826 in Putnam County, Georgia. I'm not sure of
Thomas' parents, nor do I have sibling names. So if anyone has a clue,
please let me know.

I have found Mary in the census as follows:

1830 Monroe County, Georgia Census:

William Bowden )
Mary is shown as " free white female under ten years of age", living with
her father William Bowden. She would be Mary Bowden ( dau. ), age 4, if more
details were given on the census.

1840 Monroe County, Georgia Census:
(M704-47, District 596, Division allotted to John Reading Monroe, page 171,

of W. Bowden)
Mary is shown as " free white female age ten and under fifteen", living with
her father W. Bowden. She would be Mary Bowden ( dau. ), age 14, if more
details were given on the census.

She is shown as Mary McCommon, age 34, living with her husband Thos
McCommon. ( more details included below )


Thomas McCommon is Thomas M. McCommon. Thomas was born abt. 1825 in Georgia.
I have found him in the 1860 Monroe county census as follows:

1860 Monroe County, Georgia Census:
