Betty Boles (Bowles) Johnson

I am looking for relatives that I do not know about. Here is all the information I have. If this information ties into your family or you know anything about these people please contact me.

They had 2 sons. My father Luther Calvin Bowles, who later changed the spelling of his name to Boles,  born 1899 in St. Joe Texas and died April 1965 in Alamogordo, New Mexico.
His brothers name was George Bowles, born around 1903 to 1905 somewhere in Texas. The date of his death is unknown.


This is the information I have on the BOLES/BOWLES side of my family, which is an ongoing search. I am thankful I found my great grandfather. I hope this information will help someone  that might be looking for one of these people  from the census. This is where I acquired my information. From the census I found both spellings  of the BOLES/BOWLES name were used by my family. I think many people will find this in their family  history and a few mistakes are made in the census as far as spellings , birthdates and months are concerned. But there is enough information you can use to be able to lock on to your family members.
