She was born in Peoria, Peoria, IL, parentage unk. but supposedly her father died in Civil War in Battle of Shiloh TN.
She went to Springfield, OH, with son Dr. George Stephen Bawden and wife Annie Seibel, died and was buried there.

BAWDEN: Stephen Phelps is subject of entry in 1882 History of Davenport and Scott County, Iowa

The law has become so complex that it would be difficult for any individual to be equally at home in all departments of practice and, while a lawyer may continue in several fields, it is the tendency of the times to concentrate one's energies upon a special branch. This Stephen P. Bawden does in his attention to probate and title deed branches of law and yet he has won success in other fields and may be termed a general practitioner.

Mr. Bawden is one of Davenport's native sons and his parents were Stephen and Mary Ella (WOODWARD) BAWDEN, the former being of English parentage and the latter a native of Pennsylvania. Their removal to the west and settlement at Davenport made this city the scene of the youthful efforts and activities of S. P. BAWDEN as well as of his later years.

Having acquired his literary education in the public schools, he continued his studies in preparation for the bar and after his admission to practice in the courts of the state opened an office in Davenport, where he has since remained. His natural predilection tends him toward probate and similar departments of the law and for five years he devoted almost his entire time to those branches in the office of DAVISON & LANE. Inclination and opportunity were thus satisfied and his thoroughness and capability in this branch of the profession have won him deserved success. His two most dominant characteristics are determined persistence and thorough and honest exactness. In law and especially in real-estate law these traits are of prime importance and guarantee progress.

Mr. BAWDEN has met with good success because of these qualities and is one of the best known of the younger members of the bar in this field of practice. He enjoys the good fellowship of his brethren of the legal fraternity here and all recognize that his advancement has come as the merited and legitimate reward of his efforts and ability.

BAWDEN: John DUVALL "Tim" does Boy Scouts lifelong, works for family printing business, marries Joyce Edith GARBER and has 3 children

"Tim" was the youngest of 2 born to George Ray "Ray" and Viola Katherine "Vi" DUVALL BAWDEN on 23 Sept 1929 in Davenport, Scott, Iowa. His brother was George Ray "Binc" BAWDEN, Jr. (see blog)

At a young age Tim displayed a talent for the printing and publishing business when he founded a neighborhood newspaper called "Heights", which he wrote, printed and distributed himself for over 4 years from 1942-1946.

He graduated from Davenport [Central] High School in 1947, from St. Ambrose College in Davenport with a B.A. degree in 1950, and earned his Masters degree in Journalism from Northwestern University in Evanston, Cook, Illinois in 1952.

He was drafted into the Army where he served two years as Sergeant at Ft. Bliss, El Paso, Texas. At his father's death in April 1954, he returned to Davenport to enter the family printing business, BAWDEN Bros. Inc., with his uncle Harry ELDRIDGE BAWDEN and brother "Binc". He became president of Bawden Printing, Inc. and vice-resident of Advertising Communications, Inc. - a wholly-owned subsidiary of Bawden Bros., in Davenport and Iowa City, Iowa.

Tim's life-long interest in the Boy Scouts of America began in grade school when he joined Troop 4 at McKinley Elementary School on Davenport's Middle Road, under the leadership of Dr. Carl H. Matthey. He became troop leader during his St. Ambrose College years, began a scout troop while in the Army in El Paso. When he returned to Davenport in 1954, he became leader of Troop 4 at McKinley. Through the years, he has been leader of Explorer Post 4 at McKinley, Post 7 at the First Presbyterian Church in Davenport, and Troop 24 and Explorer Post 24 at Riverdale School in Bettendorf, Scott, Iowa. Over 100 boys have earned their Eagle Scout Award due to his efforts.

He served for 25 years on the local Boy Scout Council, and as a member of the National Boy Scout Committee as chairman of the National Boy Scout Advancement Committee. He received two of the highest awards: Silver Beaver for outstanding local service and Silver Antelope for exceptional effort on the regional level.

Tim married Joyce Garber on 19 Aug 1961 in Randolph, Fremont, Iowa's Presbyterian Church. She is the daughter of Chester Christopher and Mabel Ione CHAMBERS GARBER. Joyce was born 7 May 1935 on the family farm near the former village of Anderson, Fremont, Iowa. The CHAMBERS family came to Walnut Creek Twp, Fremont, Iowa from Pennsylvania in 1856.

Joyce graduated from Randolph {Iowa] High School and from the University of Iowa, Iowa City, Johnson, Iowa in May 1957 with a BA in Music Education. She taught school in Los Alamos, New Mexico, Fremont-Mills High School in Tabor, Iowa and J.B. Young Intermediate School in Davenport before her marriage.

She had been a leader in many educational and cultural organizations in the Davenport area, serving as president of the Junior Symphony, president of Chapter LM, PEO and president of the Pleasant Valley, Scott, Iowa school board. She sang in Davenport's First Presbyterian Church choir for 20 years and served on the advisory board for Women's Athletics at the University of Iowa.

The Bawdens have been active members of 1st Presbyterian Church where Tim served as elder and deacon. He was chosen Outstanding Young Man of the Year by the Junior Chamber of Commerce, president of the Outing Club, a Davenport dining, bowling and social club, and a member of Davenport Kiwanis Club.

They had 3 children all in Davenport:
1. Michael Thomas b 22 Aug 1962, graduated from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas, married Caroline Susan Kammann 28 Jul 1984 in Crown Point, Indiana
2. Peter CHAMBERS born 14 Oct 1964; chosen high school all-state football lineman, earned Eagle Scout, graduated form Arizona State at Tempe in political science.
3. Cynthis/Cindy ELDRIDGE born 18 Oct 1967. Graduated from Colorado State University at Fort Collins.

Tim also commissioned a family gene study for Alice Richardson Sloane, C.G., author and compiler, Davenport. It was vinyl-bound, printed in 1986 in Decorah, Iowa, 290 pps with photos, no ISBN and no copyright in the possession of this author. There was no interaction between Ms. Sloane, the printer, or Tim and I am making it a several-years-long project to give it some integrity.

Tim died 15 May 1992 in Davenport. Ashes were given to the family.
