He married America 'Merica' Isbell in St Clair Co., Al, 5 Jul 1884. (America 'Merica' Isbell is #13639.) America was born in St. Clair Co., Al 6 Sep 1864. America was the daughter of Jesse W. Isbell and Dorcas Watson. America died 10 Nov 1918 in Near Leeds, Jefferson Co., Al, at 54 years of age. Her body was interred in Shiloh Cem., Leeds, Jefferson Co., Al. At 21 years of age America became the mother of George A. Bowden in Al, Sep 1885. At 26 years of age America became the mother of John A. 'Johnny' Bowden in Al, Apr 1891. At 29 years of age America became the mother of Callie D. Bowden in Al, Feb 1894. At 33 years of age America became the mother of William 'Willie' Bowden in Al, 27 Dec 1897.

At 31 years of age John became the father of George A. Bowden in Al, Sep 1885. At 37 years of age John became the father of John A. 'Johnny' Bowden in Al, Apr 1891. At 40 years of age John became the father of Callie D. Bowden in Al, Feb 1894. At 44 years of age John became the father of William 'Willie' Bowden in Al, 27 Dec 1897. Since America is buried at Beulah Shiloh, am assuming that John is also.

John C. Bowden and America 'Merica' Isbell had the following children:

child 2 i. George A.2 Bowden (#13641) was born in Al Sep 1885. George died after 1 Jan 1920 in Leeds, Jefferson Co., Al, at approximately 34 years of age. Lonnie Adams said he never married. George was living with his father in 1920 in Pell City, St. Clair County. Lonnie said he got killed at the shale quarry trying to go around the path. He was drunk and fell off.

child 3 ii. John A. 'Johnny' Bowden (#13642) was born in Al Apr 1891. John died before 1910 in Ragland, St. Clair Co., Al. Lonnie Adams said Johnny got killed at Ragland at the cement plant.

child 4 iii. Callie D. Bowden (#13643) was born in Al Feb 1894. Her body was interred in Sand Mountain, Marshall Co., Al. Lonnie said she did marry. To whom? Since she is not with her parents in the 1910 census, she probably married before 15 April 1910.
