---All I have on my Grandfather Earl Austin is he was born in Kingsley Kansas, Edwards County on Oct 3 1893 (1895) and his fathers name was Frank Austin.I understand he had a brother by the name of Robert. Also his father remarried and Earl and Robert left home at a very early age. I found a 1900 census with some familar names however I"m not sure if this is the family. I have no name or idea what happened to Earl and Robert mother.

The father's name is Nelson Carrie Bowman, born 1870 in Iowa. He married Eva Curtiss which was the boys mother. The boys names were Leon and Earl Bowman; however I have learned they might be JACOB LEON & JOSEPH EARL.
My grandmother's name was Manie "Bell" (Grigsby) Bowman. My grandmother had other children as well; but my mother was the only child of Bell and Nelson. Nelson was killed before my mother was a year old.
Mother's name was Carrie "May" Bowman born in 1916, & died in 1975.
After Nelson died the boys were sent to Kansas to live with their mother, at least that is what Mother thought. I have read a posting someplace which I believe is these boys. They were sent to Kansas but ended up in an orphanage, which they ran away from about ages 11 & 13.
My mother wrote several letters searaching for them, that was way before computers. May was born in 1916 and died in 1975. I would love to complete her desire to find her brothers families if possible.
