About Nancy C. Wolfe

Nancey C. Davis Bowen died in 1867 at age 32. She was buried in Rutherford County, NC, in some pines close to old Hopewell Methodist Church cemetery, about a mile from present day cemetery. Her husband William H. Bowen Died of disease at Balley Mountain in 1861, Aug. 24. He was in the Civil War at the time. When she died she left two sons, Berry, who was 13 and Doc Craton, who was 11. Both sons went to live with her parents in Whitfield County Georgia.

On the 1850 census of Rutherford County NC in the Sandy Run District which is on the east side of the county is the family of David and Arty Bowen. David is listed age 48 and Arty is 45. Nine children are listed from age 24 down to 1. A Drusilla Dob(b)ins age 63 is listed who may have been Arty's sister. The next listing is William Bowen age 22 and Nancy 16. William and Nancy have no assets listed, so, I would guess the newlyweds were living with family.
