For Sale or Trade? Mary Bowman's House

For Sale or Exchange.

Having determined to sell my residence, on South street, I will do so at a very low price for cash, or exchange for a smaller house in the city. The house is two stories high, and has nine large rooms; the lot is large and is as desirable as any in the city. The place is well supplied with various kinds of fruit and shrubbery, and has all the necessary out-buildings. For particulars apply to G. M. Mountjoy, A. J. Hall or the undersigned. (mh22) Mary E. Bowman

What an interesting concept! By 1900, Mary E. Bowman nee Chinn was living with her son-in-law and daughter, George and Isabella (Bowman) Mountjoy. By 1880, all her sons had reached their majority and would inherit from their late father, Lt. Col. John Parker Bowman, who died on retreat from Pea Ridge, Arkansas. Mary Chinn Bowman passed in 1904.
