i. David Lunsford b abt 1950 d abt 2015 Tampa FL; buried Camp Nelson National Cemetery, Nicholasville, KY. David was in the military and fought in the Vietnam War. He was never the same after he came back. He had several children with whom he decided not to spend time. In his youth, he decided that he did not want the burden of children, and in his old age, he regretted that decision. Needless to say his children wanted little to do with him when he did decide to finally contact them.

ii. Judy Lunsford (I don't know if that is her correct name and don't know anything about this lady).

2. Ed Bowen b abt 1920 (I don't think he married).

William Bowen

My mother told me that Will Bowen took a horse whip and beat his wife, our Aunt Ada Fuller quite often. He was apparently a very violent man. I also think that he was very mean to her in other ways as well as he was also known as a womanizer. Her life with him was probably quite unpleasant to say the least.

Ada Fuller Bowen was a lovely person and when she was in her old age, she lived with my mother, Ida Fuller Potter for a time. They enjoyed being together. They lived in an old red brick home in Lexington, Kentucky. They enjoyed raising African Violets. Those old homes were well built with large spacious rooms and high ceilings. Very nice.
