Two photographs of Gertrude E. Bowen of Searsport, Maine

Note of October 1, 2015:  A reader has provided a link to a Find a Grave entry that lists the grave of Gertrude Bowen Cook that shows her death date as December 15, 1951.  She may have been the wife of Harold Lloyde Cook, buried with her at Elmwood Cemetery at Searsport, Maine.

Two photographs of Gertrude E. Bowen of Searsport, Maine.  Each was taken by Tuttle & Son studio of Belfast, Maine.

From online research, hopefully correct:

Gertrude E. Bowen was born 23 December 1887 at Searsport, Maine, the daughter of George Andrew "Bohan" Bowen and his wife Caroline "Carrie" (Gray) Bowen.  Her paternal grandparents were Captain William Bowen and Mary (Cunningham) Bowen.  Her maternal grandparents were William Austin Gray and Sarah Jane "Sister" (Crockett) Gray.

I lost track of Gertrude E. Bowen after the 1910 Census.   I didn't find a marriage for her in the Maine Marriages online database, but I may have missed her or she may have married out of state.  Or perhaps she never married.   

Thanks to a reader, see this Find A Grave listing for the burial sites of Gertrude Bowen Cook and Harold Lloyd Cook at Searsport, Maine.
