Narrative

Jane Eliza, eldest daughter of Archibald McFadyen and Mary Ann Beer, married John Bowman on 25 January 1877 in Charlottetown, at Trinity Methodist. Witnesses were George Bowman and Ambrose Clow.

In the 1881 census, John and Jane were living with John's parents, Richard (Boyman), age 75, and his wife Jane, age 63 in Lot 31. They had three children, Lucy (3), Wesley (2) and Ira, 3 months. Ira, born Dec 1880 doesn't match Harry, born in March, or Alvah, a girl. Also in the household were John's sister Annie and her son Herbert, age 8. (but in the next census, both Harry and Alvah were age 8)

Jane must have died before 1891. In the census of that year, her children were scattered among family: her husband John Bowman was working as a hired man in the household of his brother Will Bowman, and gave his status as widower; Lucy was with her McFadyen grandparents; Harry Whitfield Bowman was with the Hyde family; little Alvah was, at age 8, a domestic servant for the Robert Edwards family, an aunt and uncle on the Bowman side of the family. Annie Lulu, age 3, was with her aunt, Elizabeth Bowman Green. Son John Wesley went to the States, possibly around this time.

No gravestone or death record has been found for Jane or John Bowman, and she was not listed in her father's obituary or his will. There was a brief entry in the Cornwall United Church burial records for a Mrs. J. Bowman North Wiltshire, age 32, April 1889 which is probably her.

Lucy and Alvah also went to the United States. Annie Lulu Bowman stayed on the Island and married William Cooper. Harry was adopted by the Hydes and stayed on the Island. Her husband John may have died in the Asylum in Charlottetown.
