i. David Lane 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. Children of David Lane Lunsford and Martha Webb;

Olga Bowens m. Arthur "Huff" Huff (no children). Olga was married to Huff at the time of her death in Lexington KY. Huff preceded her in death. I believe Huff worked in the air conditioning business. He was not home a lot. He was a man of average height and weight.
2. James Edward Ed Bowen b abt 1920 buried Lexington Cemetery, Lexington, Fayette Co KY. I don't think Ed Bowen every married. Ed was a large man in height and weight.

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.

Will "Willie" Bowens m. 9 May 1917 Pine Top KY by Alex Hale, in the presence of Linsey Amburgey and H Bowens (Notes: Attest: W. T. Francis -County Court Clerk Book 10 pg 141 to Ada Fuller b 10 Sept 1901 d 21 Dec 1977 Lexington, Fayette Co KY; d/o Green Fuller and Margaret Amburgey. It is said that Will Bowens was a very mean man and used a horsewhip to beat Ada when they were married. Ada divorced him and remarried.
Ida Fuller, my mother, said that Aunt Ada Fuller was a very beautiful young woman and that the family disliked Will Bowens very much because he was mean to Aunt Ada. Aunt Ada worked at the Eastern State Mental Hospital in Lexington, Fayette Co Kentucky for many years and after her retirement, she worked at local area nursing homes in Lexington, Kentucky.
I recall that one of Ada's patients was a Mrs. Yancy in the nursing home she worked. Our mother, Ida Fuller Potter also worked in that same nursing home. Mom and Aunt Ada shared an apartment together for a time in Lexington, KY. Aunt Ada and Mom enjoyed growing African Violets and were skilled at it.
