F. C. BOWMAN, D. V. S.
The veterinary surgeon occupies an important position in a rural community and Dr. F. C. Bowman, who is residing in Williamsburg, has a large practice in the surrounding country. His birth occurred in Maquoketa, Iowa, on the 13th of February, 1884, and his parents were S. H. and Katherine (Edelman) Bowman, natives respectively of Virginia and Pennsylvania. About 1850 they took up their residence in Jackson county, Iowa, and resided upon a farm there until the father retired and removed to Maquoketa. To them were born seven children, all of whom are living, our subject being the fifth in order of birth.

Dr. F. C. Bowman remained at home until he was twenty one years of age and then entered the Chicago Veterinary College, where he remained for three years, graduating therefrom in 1907 with the degree of D. V. S. He began practice in Dixon, Illinois, but did not remain there long, locating in Williamsburg, this county, on the loth of December, of that year. He has resided here ever since and as his thorough knowledge of his profession and his skill in the application of the principles of veterinary medicine and surgery have become better known his patronage has increased. He is widely recognized as an able practitioner and is prospering financially.

Dr. Bowman was married in 1909 to Mrs. Estella Spear, a native of this county, who had a son, Nathan, by her first marriage. Dr. and Mrs: Bowman have two children, Clyde and Katherine N.

Dr. Bowman is a democrat and takes a good citizen's interest in the affairs of government but has never desired to hold office. His wife is a member of the Methodist Episcopal church, and he is at all times willing to cooperate with organizations seeking the good of the community. He has achieved a gratifying measure of professional and financial success for one of his years and his worth is acknowledged wherever he is known.
