Photos George Austin Phelps & Sarah "Sally" Bowman
George Austin Phelps (1839-1920) and Sarah "Sally" Bowman (1848-1872) of Cove District, Moatsville, WV, USA
Sarah "Sally" Bowman Phelps (1848-1872) daughter of Daniel L Bowman and Catherine Gore
Due to Sarah's early passing, she and George only had six years together and four children of which one of them, Walter Watkins Phelps 11 was my paternal Grandfather. George had written this on her tombstone "She was a loyal wife, A good mother, And a friend to all." She being my paternal Great-Grandmother that I never knew, pretty well sums up her story of life to me!
