here are his service records - says he was born in USA

I think this is his death notice in 1949  http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article22738443

regards
  Ros

adding : this death notice makes clear he was married to Bessie

Where have you sourced your information?  The indexes show the following

Marriage in Victoria
BOWDEN Thomas George  Born North America
MOORE Minnie  Born Carlton
1890  Reg#9167

Birth
BOWDEN Irene Evelyn
Father Thomas George  Mother Minnie MOORE
At Bunyip South  1896  Reg#26106

There are numerous BOWDEN birth registrations with the mother's name Bessie MOORE.

Birth registrations include the people named in the death notice.

Hi,

Interesting that on his WW1 papers it says that he was in a rifle club in West Aust for 3 years.

I would suggest the marriage certificate would be a better resource for the bride's parents' names.

BOWDEN Irene Eveleen
MARCON August John
1917  Reg#6183


Australian Electoral Roll
1927
MARCON Irene Evelyn  24 Finlay Street, Albert Park  HD
MARCON John August  24 Finlay Street, Albert Park  Motor driver
