Edmond Bower in1892 and they had two daughters Denise born 1896 died 1980 and Delia who became a nun. Denise Married Claude Hollies in 1944 but they had no issue. Because they had no heirs, Denise Hollies kept in touch with J.P.Murray and gave several family papers and possessions to him. Betsy also kept in touch and gave several of the family miniatures to Elizabeth Murray. Capt. Bower was very interested in family history and labelled many of the miniatures as well as doing research.

Cordelia was known in the family as 'Aunt Delia' and she went to live with her Aunt William Mina (Lady Douglas) in Grosvenor Square . Because they were close she named her own daughter after her Aunt and when her Aunt died she was left the Grosvenor Square property.
