Yes, that would be in my Bowen line but in the Clark family Bible (which encompasses the Bowens as well) He's ROWLAND PERCY BOWEN. Thanks for the link!

Since that tree has yet another date of death I had a look at the newspaper linked earlier for March 5th 1904. Obits are on page 7. Nothing there.

Next issue.....they had a party the night before scanningI think....first and last few pages ok, but here is a clip from the middle  (the fuzziness is my fault but the mirror writing is not!)
currently concentrating on NUTCHER & MARSHALL families, Hampshire.
and family of Thomas ANDERSON a Tailor of Perth, Scotland

Thank you so much!!  That "Methodist" designation is probably just for "convenience" although I'll have to check out the non-conformist links.   Mary Emma Williams was the daughter of a Unitarian minister in England.  When Howard Prime Bowen married his second wife, he listed his religion as "Unitarian".  I am the keeper of the MASSIVE marble clock given to Mary Emma's father, Samuel Fletcher Williams, when he retired along with the illuminated "thank you" piece of paper that came with the clock.  I've found that my branch of the Bowen family is rather fluid about religion.  Some of them are Methodists, some Anglican, some Congregationalist, some Huguenot, some Plymouth Brethren.  I often wonder what it was like at the dinner table when the Congregationalist sister-in-law chatted with the brother-in-law who was with the Plymouth Brethren or her sister, who was Unitarian.  Possibly it's one of those cases where they never talked about religion or politics!!

My husband's parents were Unitarian even tho' she was raised in the United Church here in Canada (church organist father) and baptized in the Congregationalist church in Sherbrooke, Quebec, so yes, religion can be a fluid thing!

The link I sent had a link to the manager of the site who was Pete Bowen who must be a descendant of Rowland.

LOL - Rowland, Charles & Harry were born 1894, 1896 & 1898 so it sound as if the parents rounded them all up, got them "spit & polished" at the same time & got them to the church!!  Thanks for those

If Mary Emma was buried from the same church that the children were baptized in.....

The online records for this church appear to NOT have 1903 as part of the collection. This may explain why the burial can't be found.

My suggestion matches an earlier one....IMHO, you need to apply for the death date ($5.00 option) from the cemetery.
