Children of Charles Austin Bowman and Perneshia Alice Williams:
There must be an error on Clair or Charles Earl -- they can't have birthdays just one month apart! The 1910 Census (Lincoln, Neosho, KS. p. 2) and 1920 Census (Canville, Neosho, KS. p. 10) would suggest Clair was born about 1905 and Charles Earl about 1907.
The man Edith married, Jacob Shepard, was also the father (by an earlier marriage) of Clair's wife. Which made Edith both Clair's sister and step-mother-in-law.
