Jesse Edwin Bowen was my great paternal grandfather. Born on 25 December 1903 in Decatur, Wise County, Texas, he was the son of William Booker Bowen and Ada Evaline Smith. Although my memories of Great-grandpa Bowen are few, I remember him to be a quiet and gentle man who loved walnuts. In my memory walnuts and him go together. Here is his birth record.
Thank you for reading.
