Notes

  • The 1870 census lists Vista as Buena Vista.  This is likely where themiddle initial B came form when she was later listed as Vista B Clinein the 1910 census.  Buena Vista is the Spanish phrase for "good view"or "pretty view."

    This census report gives us some information on Vista's parents.  Notethat both the daughters are married but neither husband is in thishousehold.  The census says that Vista has been married for 2 years,consistent with my earlier estimate on marriage in 1898.  Bonnie's agewas first written as 7/12, then corrected to 8/12, which matches thereported birth month of October 1899.

    In the 1910 census, Vista is in her own household with her husbandMartin and their two children.  Dorothy Mullinnix reports in herMullinnix Files (http://www.gencircles.com/users/annmull/1/data/4799)that Vista Cline was the second wife of Martin Monroe Cowart.Martin's first wife Annie America (Americus) West died in about 1897.Martin and Vista's daughter Bonnie Mae Cowart was born in October1899, according to the 1900 census.  This means they were marriedabout 1898.

    In the 1910 census, Bonnie is reported as only 9 years old, but shewas already 8 months old int eh 1900 census, and her birth datereported as October 1899.
