Owen Township, Clark County, Indiana

born Nov. 9, 1801, died July 25, 1851, aged 50 years

died April 30, 1819, aged 63 years

This cemetery is located near the Ohio River on Bowyer Road. According to the Owen Township Trustee in July 1997, this property is maintained by the Bowyer Family.

We visited Bowyer Cemetery on July 11, 1998, after our CCCPC meeting. It is beautifully maintained by members of the Bowyer family. Our contact was Rev. Ray Bowyer, the pastor of Pleasant View Baptist Church in New Washington, near Hibernia. We recommended to Rev. Bowyer that he contact Joe Renck, the Probation Officer in charge of Judge Fleece's Clark County Community Service Corps, to see if they can help the Bowyer family clean out the fence row and remove some stumps.
