      Emily J. Coburn, 21, house servant, b Can.

      Wife, Abiah, died 9/1/1870.

      Moses married Alice A. Armstrong on Jan. 10, 1876.

      He died of Apoplexy. He was a hat manufacturer at the time of his death.

      *Moses died, aged 66 in 1876, so his birth date is around 1810.
      His father was Jeremiah Bowen, who was married to Sarah Noyes and had many children before Moses was born. Jeremiah published intentions to marry a Mrs. Susannah Webster in 1810 in Methuen, so this is more likely Moses' mother. Also, one of Moses' marriage records and his death record states his mother's name was Susannah (not Sarah or Sally)
