How I love family names. They do make it so much easier to find death records.
Edwin Parker Bowman, son of Edwin Forest Bowman and Alice Victoria Robinson, was born January 2, 1889 in St. Louis, Missouri. He married Mabel Tucker about 1912, and died in Houston, Texas on January 18, 1978. His father and my great grandfather, Frank G. Bowman were brothers, making him my first cousin twice removed.
The family names? Edwin for his father, Parker for the Parkers of Lexington, Kentucky - his paternal grandfather being John Parker Bowman - and obviously Bowman.
