                                 (born 01 Feb 1895 Sullivan Co, MO;
                                 died 18 Nov 1926;

                marriage record for Arthur and Edith
;
                divorced c. 1924-1928;

                         *  One of Arthur's obituaries mentions amongst survivors: daughter Grace Irene Edwards of Pawnee City, NE and
                            son Maj Paul Wilbur Bowhay of San Bernardino, CA (we believe they likely meant Carl Wilbur Bowhay).
                            Otherwise, we find nothing to substantiate that these are children of Arthur. Also, we find mention in two obituaries
                            of a "Leslie Bowhay" as a sibling to the known children listed below. We do not see him mentioned elsewhere.
                            As a possibility, we find a Leslie Owen Bowhay (02 Jun 1945-21 Aug 1946; buried
                            Cherokee Municipal Cemetery, Cherokee, Alfalfa, OK. We welcome confirmation of any of these issues.
