On 15 Aug 1931, Earl married Velma Lucille Fitzwater at the Church of the Good Shepherd in Norwood.
Earl and Velma became parents to five children:
-Velma Jean "Jean" Bowman
-James Arthur "Jim" Bowman (1936-2006)
-Richard Earl "Dick" Bowman
-Christine Sue "Chris" Bowman
-Earl Jeffrey "Jeff" Bowman
The 1940 Census shows Earl at age 32 living with Velma and their kids on Spring Street in Plainville, Hamilton County, Ohio. Velma was the informant and indicates Earl works as a Machinist for a Machine Tool Manufacturing Company. The household enumerated before theirs was Velma's parents, Wright and Effie Rue Fitzwater, but there are a number of errors in the information that was given.
In the late 1940's, Earl and Velma moved their family to Memphis, Tennessee.
By 1950, they were back in Ohio.
Eventually, Earl and Velma built a home in Loveland in the Stoneybrook subdivision and moved there with their family. Two of their kids, Jim and Jean, also built homes and moved there with their respective spouses and families in the early 1960's.
