Notes

  • 1860 Federal Census, Itawamba County, Mississippi, 23 June, PO GemTown, page 39, Hse/Fam #47
    Bowen, Albert 45 M Farmer $1000 Real Estate $235 Personal b TN [b abt1815]
    Bowen, Carroll 25 M Farmer $0 Real Estate $167 Personal b TN [b abt1835]
    Bowen, Caroline 25 F b AL [b abt 1835]
    Bowen, Ann 3 F b MS [b abt 1857]

    This census indicates that Carroll and Caroline (known as Callie infamily sources) married about 1856, and the first child Ann was bornin about 1857.  Ann is still in the home at age 23 in 1880.

    In 1860 the name is clearly Bowen, but in 1870 it is very clearlyBoren. In 1880 it is less clear, and could be Borun, as transcribed byAncestry; Borun is disputed by family genealogists, who prefer Bowen;I have seen no genealogy that comments on Boren in 1870.  I have seengenealogy that even has the 1870 census.

    1870 Federal Census, Lee County, Mississippi, [no date] August,District 1, PO Baldwyn, p 52, Hse/Fam #101
    Boren, W C 31 M W  Farmer $0 Real Estate Value $325 Personal b TN[born abt 1839]

    Boren, Mary 4 F W  b MS [born abt 1861]
    Boren, Lyddia 6mos F W  b MS born Dec 1869

    Lyddia matches Etta (Luetta) in the 180 census, as our Etta Lou.  Notethat the census record both her age (at the official census date) andthe month in which she was born.  The 1900 census reported her birthdate as November 1869.
