Grocery store, Bowman family, NYC

Photo Details

A photo of the Bowman family in front of their grocery store: Charles and Elma Simmons briefly ran a grocery store in New York City. My father remembers hearing that Elma hated living in the city so much that she threatened divorce if they did not GO HOME to Dutchess County. I have no proof, but believe the two other people in the photo may be Elma's brother Otis Bowman and sister Mary (Bowman) Duncan. A 1910 census says Otis was 50, making his birthdate about 1860 - he would have been 25 in 1885. According to my information, Mary was born in 1866 and would have been about 19.
