Tombstone Tuesday - R.E. Fowler


Robert E.
Feb. 4, 1832
Sept. 2, 1919

Buried Pilot Knob Cemetery, Crittenden County, Kentucky. Tombstone photgraphed 1994. Pilot Knob Cemetery was formerly known as the Fowler Cemetery and I suspect that this was land originally owned by Stephenson Fowler, who died in 1816 when this area was still part of Livingston County.

According to his death certificate, Robert E. Fowler was the son of J.M. Fowler and Terricy Williams. Robert E. Fowler left a will [Will Book 1, page 531] by which he left his entire estate to Will Fowler, R.G. Fowler and J.A. Fowler.
