Biographical Note

LaRue Bowman was born in Roanoke in 1922. She later married Otho Mason and retired from General Electric as an office manager. Mason was an avid genealogist and amassed a large collection of genealogical materials. Mason passed away on February 13, 1997.

Scope and Content

The collection is comprised of 4 record storage boxes. The boxes house 213 files containing different surname records and 17 files containing various miscellaneous materials. This collection is a medley of materials. There are photos, obituaries, wedding announcements, newspaper articles, letters, copies of wills, deeds, etc. Most of Mason’s work comes from the 1970s-early 90s, while the records she collected date from the 1700s-1900s. This collection consists of genealogical information relating to the Mason and Bowman families. Most of the information is regional, although correspondence regarding the search for genealogical information comes from all over the country.

Arrangement

Documents are arranged alphabetically by surname with a section of miscellaneous documents arranged alphabetically thereunder.
