His death notice in the Daily Missouri Republican of August 18 1858 reads:
DIED on Friday Morning, 13th inst., at the residence of his father, John C. Bowman, eldest son of John P. and Mary E. Bowman, aged about 18 years.
Of all the Bowman children he is the one I know least about. The notice does not say that he was survived by his parents, his sister, Isabelle Bowman Mountjoy, his brother Joseph, his brother Edwin, and his brother Frank. He was possibly even survived by his brother, Clifton, whose birth date is estimated as 1858 from the census.
