• I know that George and Florence Bowman Holloway lived in Helt and Clinton in Vermillion County, Indiana, at various times. Both were born around 1890. Florence had a son named Kenneth Gowen by her first husband. Kenneth lived with them in Helt and is enumerated on the 1920 census. He continued to live in Helt after he married and is enumerated on the 1930 census. I am looking for any other information about this family. Thanks! Beth Rasmussen brwhome390
