Looking for JAMES BOWEN born 1909 and lived at 274 woolwich rd, Charlton.Parents were WILLIAM JAMES BOWEN and HANNAH LUCY BURTON.He had eight bros and sisters.FRED, LALLY, LYDIA, BERT, HARRY, FRANK and VIOLET. Last seen in 1972 at Franks funeral. He had been a batchelor all his life,but was due to marry later that year to his friends widow. I'm sure he is now desceased.But if any of this womans family remember him I would be grateful if they could contact me.Trying to put closure on the BOWEN family tree. Would like to know if there are any old family photos of his lying around.They are of great importance to me and I hope someone has some info for me. VAL G. nee BOWEN.
