Josephine "Josie" Howell was born about 1860 in Franklin County. She married Louis Marlow there in 1879. Their son Gideon Marlow was born in Arkansas in 1883. Then Louis Marlow brought his family to Bowie County, Texas after their daughter Flora was born in 1885. "Josie" died after Flora's birth and was buried at Springhill Cemetery. Louis Marlow then married in 1889 to Allie Elizabeth McCrary, daughter of Francis McCrary (youngest brother of John H McCrary who married Josie's older sister, Mary J Howell) and Nancy J Fox.
Josie's children, Gideon and Flora Marlow, are shown in 1900 census in Bowie County, Texas with their father, Louis Marlow. Gideon is shown with father in 1910 census in Marshall County, Arkansas as age 25 and single. Flora is not shown.
