I am sending this message to anyone and everyone. It doesn't have anything
to do with genealogy, and yet it does! One of the dearest, sweetest, lady,
that I know is very very sick. She is 85 and has helped many people in their
endeaver to find an ancestor. She needs eveyone's prayers, so she may get
better. Her name is Elizabeth Downing. I think, she almost has pheumonia.
I,ve only talked to her on the phone, but I know she sounds really terrible.
Another thing that makes me know that she is sick, is she doesn't feel like
talking. And, she's always ready to talk about genealogy! So, I
would ask that everyone say a prayer that she might get well. And I thank
you very much and may God bless you.

I copied a few wills on my last trip to Bourbon County Ky., and am not
familar with the Benjamin BOWLES mentioned in this one. Anyone know what
happened to him?
I David BOWLES of Bourbon County and State of Kentucky being in sound mind
knowing I am to die make my last will and testament.
Item 1st. I will my soul to God who gave it.
Item 2nd. It is my will that all my just debts be paid.
Item 3rd. I will and bequeath all my personal and real estate to my beloved
wife Elizabeth BOWLES during her natural life and at her death to be
equally divided among all my surviving heirs. I have already given my son
Thomas M.BOWLES one hundred sixty dollars, four sheep, one cow and calf,
also one bed and furniture which shall be deducted out of his part of my
estate at the death of my wife. I have given to my daughter Harriet PAYNE
one bed and furniture, one cow and calf, also one saddle worth twenty six
dollars which is to be deducted at the same time and in the same manner as
my son Thomas. And all the rest should they get anything shall be deducted
in like manner and at said time.
Item 4th. It is my will that my executors should have the management of my
negro man Sam, and leave it to them to keep him on the farm or hire him out
or sell him which they think will be the most advantageous to said estate
or benefit to my wife.
Item 5th. It is my wish that my son Benjamin BOWLES should see to and
manage for his mother as they should agree.
Item 6th. It is my will that there should be no sale of my estate until my
wifes death and then for it to be sold and equally divided among all my heirs.
Item 7th. It is my will that Hughes BOWLES and Stephen BOWLES my brothers
should be appointed sole executors to this my last will and testament. In
witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand and affixed my seal this
October 2nd 1823.
In presence of Abraham MILLER & Robert GREEN.
Will proved in Bourbon County Court November term 1823.
This was in the Kentucky Explorer, November,1996 written by John J. Boles,Louisville.
I am sending a picture of my great-great grandfather and a little of the family history.
Thomas Bowles, my g.g.grandfather was born May 5, 1775, in Chesterfield, VA.He was the son of Thomas Bowles, who was born in 1732 in VA. Thomas Jr. had a brother named Fleming who stayed in VA. and continued to spell his name Bowles.
Thomas Sr. was arrested by the British for supplying the Continental Army. Had he been armed at the time, they would have shot him. Instead they paroled him.
Thomas Jr. married Tabethia Farmer, daughter of Elam Farmer,Jr., in Chesterfield,VA., in 1797. They had sons, Elam Farmer Boles, born in 1798, James Madison Boles, born in 1799, and daughter Tabethia Jane Boles, born in 1805. In the Cumberland Co. census of 1810 of 1820, Elam states that he was the last Boles born in VA.. So Thomas had to have moved to KY. in 1798 or 1799.
Family legend has it that Thomas was in a fight to death with a man and he was choking him to death and he gorged the other man's eyes out. He either fled to KY. as a felon from justice or fearing what the family would do to him, or perhaps for both reasons.
His reason for coming to Cumberland Co.,KY.,was that he had a brother-in-law living there of the Cleatham family.
During the War of 1812, 100 Americans surrendered to the British who turned them over to the Indians, who in turn massacred them. Most were from KY. Gov. Shelby called for volunteers and every able-bodied KY. man answered the call. Thomas Jr. was 37 years old, with a family. He volunteered and perhaps some that were massacred were his friends. He had to furnish his flint lock rifle,powder and lead, clothes, blankets, and cooking equipment. Thomas fought all the way to Canada.
Thomas Jr.lived to be 88 years old, and died in Burksville, KY., Cumberland Co. He is buried in the Burksville Cemetery alongside his wife,son Elam Farmer and his wife. They were buried in a family plot and someone built a house 18 inches from the wall. Dr. Donald Boles and myself moved them to a perpetual care cemetery.
The first spelling of Boles has been found in 1823 in probating Elam Farmer,Jr's will.Elam Boles signed on the margin as Boles. Why, I don't know.
If anyone wants the complete history it is on a tape in the Mormon Archives, put there by a Mormon genealogist.
This query was just sent to me, and I can't find anything in my
records to help him. Anyone got anything they know about this couple? If
so, can you both post it to the group, and post it to Larry, please?
Anna Bowls / Bowles
b. abt 1792, Orange County, NC
d. bef? 1860, Weakley County, TN
m. to James Baldridge
They had 8-9 children.
Anna and James are my 4th great grandparents.
I have data on James, but, Anna is a mystery.
Is any of this famaliar?
I would appreciate any help you might be able to offer.
For those of you not from the San Francisco Bay Area, Sutro Library is a
(or perhaps the) California State Genealogical Library. Here's some of
what I found on Bowles:
'Marriages of Goochland County, Virginia 1733-1815' by Kathleen Booth
Hughes Bowles m Mary Shipp 12 Nov 1783
William Bowles m Elizabeth Napier, daughter of Booth Napier, 14 Feb 1778
Nathan V. Bowles m Jane Puryear, daughter of Ann, 20 Jan 1812
There were others, but I didn't have time to copy them out
Goochland County Wills & Deeds 1736-1742 pg. 32
John Bowles is listed as a witness to a deed, 2 Aug 1739
St. James Parish Vestry Book 1744-1850
Gideon Bowles is a member of Processions (land survey I think) in 1764
Going back again next Friday
Just a quick note to let you all know that my father Harold W. Boles (5123
Ridgebrook Dr., Kalamazoo, MI 49001) suffered a stroke two years ago. He's
doing well but is not able to answer genealogical correspondence. However, I
am quite active genealogically and would be happy to handle
Boles/Boyle/Boal/etc. related inquiries. If you have Web access you can also
check out my home page at http://members.aol.com/Bolesbooks/Bolesbooks.html.
My best wishes for the holidays and new year --

I sent this to the Greene County Tennessee list and to a few others. Linne
suggested I send it to the Bowles list as some of you had people at the
Bright Hope Furnace in Greene County.
For you that are not familiar with Bright Hope Furnace Ledger, it is the
record of transactions at the company store for parts of 1835 & 1836. The
This was Christmas time in 1835. There was no mention of Christmas in the
Ledger, and no Christmas items on the Ledger - no cards, no ornaments, no
wrapping paper, no toys, no Christmas trees. The only thing that even
sounds like Christmas were the chestnuts.

As everyone knows, Rootsweb sponsors all the computers, equipment
and functioning of most of the lists, including the Bowles list. Because
they've been a real lifeline to me, I've sent them a little token of my
appreciation to support them. In return, they ask their supporters to send
them a list of surnames that they're researching, and when those surnames
come through their system, they filter them out and send them to the
appropriate researchers. Today it was a listing of cemeteries in Alabama,
other times it's a list of fellow researchers who are looking into the
Bowles (and other) lines. I've given them my list of surnames that I have
a hope of finding this way; I didn't give them some of them, such as Smith,
Jackson, Little, Marshall, White and Williams. I would just be sent pages
and pages of those names, with little understanding of which ones might be
connected to mine...I'll use other methods of located those.
Not only are the Bowles families listed here, but I've also left in
the list the families that are allied with them, as someone in our
membership may also have a Southern Bowles who married into one of these
names. Just delete the names that don't apply to your lines.
If you want to join me in supporting Rootsweb, write to me
privately and I'll tell you how. In the meantime, have a good time looking
at this list of Bowles names and others, to see what you can see.
Seasons' greetings to all,

Don Williams, sbawilli(a)ibm.net has come back with a quick reply
about his experience with the Virginia records that Sandi Gorin has
referred us to. Looks like it will be until after New Year's that I'll be
able to dip into it.
Still---if anyone does find anything of note in these files, do let
us all know.
Best wishes, Linne
Linne: I have used the electronic library index from VA before, and it does
have quite a lot of info, but it is tedious because you have to search
through cards (like in a card index file) in groups of 5 until you get to
the area that you are looking for. Then, you have to search or move one
card up or down at a time until you get to the ones you are interested in.
It does give you some ideas of who was in the area at what time. I have
used it quite often. Don Williams, Oregon.
Is anyone in our group gifted with a few spare hours to check out
this site? Sandi Gorin forwarded it to the South-Central KY list, saying
that she's just spent an hour here, and has barely scratched the surface...
The Library of Virginia URL for their Electronically Available Card
If you find something wonderful at this address, would you be kind
enough to share it with the group? I'm in over my head with Christmas and
houseguests for a while, so can't stop to look at it.
Warmest holiday wishes for everyone. May you have your deepest
hearts' desires granted,
I just rechecked a site that had the inscriptions from the gravestones for
the Bowles' and saw that Caleb was born 14 Jun 1832, not 1842. Now I'm
almost certain we have a match. If you're interested the gravestone
information is at: http://www.l-ags.org/du106.html#109.
You can get my Bowles information from my web page:
http://www.netcom.com/~curtrowe. I can send you gedcom if you want, but
there's not much.
I got the Patton spelling from two places: a recollection from her
grandson and a recollection of her daughter.
The recollection of her grandson is contained in 'Records of Families of
California Pioneers', D.A.R.:
My maternal grandfather, Caleb Bowles came across the plains from
Independence, Missouri, arriving in San Francisco in 1852. He and his
brother George held a valuable placer claim at Birchville, now a forgotten
ghost town near Dutch Flat. In 1868, he married Ellen Patton of St. Louis,
Missouri, my grandmother, who came to California via New York and the
Isthmus of Panama to teach school. Ellen Patton arrived at San Francisco
and thence when to Stockton. Caleb Bowles was a cousin of George Hearst,
and Ellen Patton and Phoebe Apperson Hearst were girlhood friends in
Ellsworth L. Martinelli
I'm guessing that Ellsworth is the son of Jane Bowles who was a daughter of
Caleb and Ellen
There is biography of Bethel S. Coats, the husband of Phoebe E. Coats who
was a daughter of Caleb and Ellen Patton in 'History of Contra Costa
County, California', 1926. It was the property of Phoebe Coats and it is
likely that she contributed the information for the biography. He is an
excerpt regarding the Bowles':
On December 30, 1891, Bethel S. Coats and Miss Phoebe Bowles were united in
marriage. She was born in San Luis Obispo County, a daughter of Caleb and
Ellen (Patton) Bowles, both natives of Missouri. Caleb Bowles came to
California and mined for a time, after which he settled in San Luis Obispo
County and engaged in ranching, later moving to Tassajara, where he
continued farming. Mr. Bowles was related to the late Senator George
Hearst, and Mrs. Bethel S. Coats was named for Mrs. Hearst [Phoebe
They both could be wrong. Ellen may have just told them what her maiden
name was and they thought it sounded more like Patton than Patten.
I also spoke with probate records for St. Louis County, Missouri today.
There are a lot of records for the Caleb Bowles who died in 1836. They
are going to look though them and send me the ones that mention family
members, hopefully a will. I'll let the Bowles list know what I find out.

This information matches mine except I show Caleb (Jr.?) married to Ellen
Patten. I have Caleb's brother George M. married to Martha Price. Caleb's
other siblings are: Margaret Jane BOWLES BURNS, William Hearst BOWLES,
I would be interested in adding your line to this as we are undoubtedly
