Ggrandmother's (Martha Ada Vinson Bone) sister or cousin, not sure which, was named Lute Vinson. Lute's
married name was Worsham (husband's unknown). She had a son Tommy Worsham. My
ggrandfather, Jasper Bone, had a sister Mary Dolly Bone Wilmoth (b 1867). Mary Dolly Wilmoth had two daughters, Iler and Inor Wilmoth (b late 1880s since her mother was b 1867). The story is that Tommy Worsham shot Inor Wilmoth, she died 16 days later. The Bone family members were all b in Hickman Co, KY. I believe the shooting must have taken place in or around East Prairie, MO since the Bones and Vinsons moved there in the early 1900s. I have an old photo of Inor as an adult (18 to 25) so the incident must have taken place in the 1920s, another assumption. Lute's sister Margaret Vinson

Mrs. Barbara Bowman, wife of Floyd Bowman of 2314
Sunset, died at 6:30 a.m. Sunday at Alton Memorial hospital where she had been
a patient since Saturday. Mrs. Bowman had been ill three years and the family
had learned several weeks ago her condition was critical. She underwent
surgery in 1948. Mrs. Bowman was born Aug. 12, 1890, a daughter of F. W.
Worsham, at Herrin and was married Sept. 23, 1909 at Marion. The family moved
from West Frankfort to Alton in 1933 and resided in Upper Alton until three
years ago when they moved to the present address. She was a member of Main
Street Baptist church and was active there until her health prevented her from
attending. Young people acquainted with the children still residing at home,
Jack, Billie and Joyce, enjoyed visiting in the Bowman home and Mrs. Bowman's
jovial personality brought the young people there often. Her one desire was to
live and see her children grown and established in life. The youngest child,
Joyce, was graduated from Alton High School with the June class. Besides her
husband and children residing at home she is survived by four other children,
Mrs. Floyd Huffstutler, Mrs. Clyde Steele Jr, Mrs. Joseph Greenwall and Floyd
Bowman Jr. , all of Alton; a sister, Mrs. Ada Barham of Johnson City. A
sister, Mrs. Mary Willis of Alton preceded her in death a year ago. She also

"I'm the g-g-grandaughter of Mariah Worsham. Mariah and
Dabney, as well as Mariah's sister "Aunt Dee" and her husband
"Col. Allen", lived in Amelia on the farm that I grew up knowing as
"the Old Hardy farm." My father grew up on that farm and remembers
Aunt Dee as well as being told about Col Allen and my father's g-grandparents,
Mariah and Dabney. I have photos of Mariah, Aunt Dee and Col Allen. I also
old photo album that belonged either to Mariah or Aunt Dee. The only
photo's with names on them are Margaret Virginia Worsham, Lutie Worsham and Willie
Worsham. We are reasonably sure that
one of the other photos is Mariah as a young woman and another is Col Allen.
There are an additional 9 photo's that are unidentified. Also, Aunt Dee's and
Col. Allen's graves are located on the farm I mentioned above. We are planning
to put up a marker to properly identify the graves. Right now there are a
handful of us who know where their unmarked graves are located."
The first and
second pictures were taken in Richmond, VA and were printed by the
same photographer on the same stock with the same decoration. The next two
pictures (3rd and 4th) of the children were taken by the same photographer, ie,
G. W. Minnis, 47 Sycamore
Streeet, established 1847 and the
picture of the young girl has the following written below the photo: "My
best love to all.
Guess who I am." The fifth picture of the two young men are
believed to be Worsham's.
On the back of the sixth photo, the young woman with a Mexican style
comb in the back of her hair, is "J. T. Hendrick,
Shadder, Catcher, Texas."
