I have been sorting through my grandmother's notes and correspondence
regarding Lovelace genealogy she did back in the 1960's and 1970's. This
is a portion of a letter she received from Elva M. Bowles (Mrs. Wilfred L.
Bowles) from Bowen, Illinois in 1971.
Lovelace line of Wilfred Lovelace Bowles
From "Lovelace Family History" compiled by Robert Nelson Lovelace
(1875-1965) an uncle of Wilfred Lovelace Bowles.
John Lovelace lived in Iredell Co., N.C. and married Sarah Cash born in
Maryland. He drowned in N.C. in the fall of 1810; his widow and children
moving to Woodford County, Kentucky in the fall of 1813. In 1829 she and
children came to Marion Co., Missouri where she lived until her death in
1867. Buried in Turpin Cemetery south of Emerson, Marion Co., Mo.
of John and Sarah Cash Lovelace:
1. Nelson Lovelace b Iredell Co. N.C. Oct. 16, 1801*; d. Marion Co.
Mo. in 1886; m 1832 to Emily Turpin (1813-1875), the dau of Thomas and Charity
2. Clarissa Lovelace, m Martin Taylor of Lewis Co. Mo
3. Nancy Caroline, m. Aaron James Lewis
4. Wiley Lovelace b 1811; m 1834 to Elizabeth Smith. He d 1864 and
buried Bethel Church Cemetery, Marion Co. Mo.
From - 1850 Census Marion Co. Mo. From 1860 census Marion Co. Mo.
Nelson Lovelace age 44 N.C..........................age 55 (so was b.
1805 or 06).
Sarah Lovelace age 60 Maryland..................age 70 - so was born 1790
Wiley Lovelace age 42 N.C............................age 52 - so was
born in 1808
From above two records you will note a difference in age dates of Nelson
and Wiley Lovelace. But since both the 1850 and 1860 census would
substantiate each other, I think their date correct. Also if their
mother, Sarah, was
born in 1790 as shown in census, she would have been much too young in 1801
(only 11 years) to have had son Nelson. The History of Marion County
gives Nelson as born in 1801 and Wiley born 1811, but think this must be an
error. - Elva Gillespie Bowles.
If this information is important to anyone, the letter also contains some
of the progeny of the children of John and Sarah Cash Lovelace. I just was
too tired to type it all right now.
Hope this helps,

Subject: A Bloyd/Winn biography--Washington Co AR
Zadok Winn, farmer and stock raiser, of Washington County, Ark., was
born in West Fork Township, of that county, February 28, 1836, and is
a son of James and Nancy (Bloyd) Winn. The father was born in Bedford
County, Tenn., May 10, 1810, and after reaching manhood located in
Illinois; thence to Washington County. Ark., in 1832, locating on the
farm now owned by his son, Zadok. He was married March 17, 1833, to
Miss Bloyd, who was born in Kentucky, and became a resident of
Washington County, Ark., in 1829, and to their union were born
thirteen children, ten of whom grew to manhood and womanhood; Eli;
Zadok; Matilda, wife of W. C. Graham; Marinda, wife of Z. C. Winn;
Rachel W., wife of John Carris; John; Mary, wife of Samuel Hale;
Ednonia, wife of H. Darin; Joel, and Margaret, wife of James Reed. The
mother of these children died in the spring of 1862, and the father
afterward married Eliza Hancock, who bore him four children: Martha
W., wife of James Carris; Walker, George A., and James. The mother is
now the wife of Daniel Cranes. Mr. Winn lived a prosperous and useful
life until 1869, when he departed this life, deeply regretted by his
relatives and friends. He had been a member of the Christian Church
for thirty years, and in his political views was a strong Republican.
The Winn family was first represented in America by three brothers who
came from Ireland to North Carolina, a number of years prior to the
Revolutionary War, and served the Colonists in their struggle for
liberty. Zadok Winn. whose name heads this sketch, has resided in
Washington County all his life, and in his boyhood days received such
education as the schools afforded. September 4, 1853, he was united in
the bonds of matrimony to Mary Caughman, who was born in Washington
County, January 20, 1835, and is a daughter of Nathan and Matilda
Caughman, who came to the county in 1829. She is the mother of ten
children: Melvia, wife of John Hutchinson; Nancy, deceased; Matilda,
wife of J. M. Bloyd; Lucinda. wife of J. W. Fitts; William; Hettie,
wife of J. A. Oxendine; Nettie, Albert L., Almedia and John. Mrs. Winn
is a member of the Christian Church, and Mr. Winn is a member of the
following secret organizations: Lodge 336 of the A. F. & A. M., Lodge
No. 90 of the I. O. O. F., Post No. 7 of the G. A. R., and the Masons.
In September, 1863, he enlisted in Company D, First Arkansas Cavalry,
and did honorable and active duty for the Union until he received his
discharge, August 23, 1865. He is a very active member of the
Republican party, serving as deputy marshal under Thomas Boles, and in
all enterprises for the public weal he has aided materially with his
influence and money. He is in good circumstances financially, and is
the owner of a fine farm as the result of his own industry.

I took a look at your web site. Specifically the WINNINGHAM area. My
wife is descendent from the Will A. WINNINGHAM you have on the page.
What you are showing doesn't agree with any of my or Shawn Gray's
research in this area. Will's mother we show as being descendent from
Jane WINNINGHAM, who was a daughter of Richard WINNINGHAM, who was the
son of the Richard WINNINGHAM of Randolph Co. NC. Richard the second
and Adam WINNINGHAM were brothers. According to my research, Mariah had
three children: Anderson WINNINGHAM (fathered by John BOLES), Will A.
WINNINGHAM (fathered by Ance ROOKER) and John Allen WINNINGHAM.
These suspected fathers are mostly family legends but seem to have
in them. I don't know the father of John Allen. The third child that
you named, I had not heard of. Can you provide some information as to
how you determined the genealogy you've published, sources of
information perhaps, so that I might review the data also?

Re Bowles Map of Seat of War in New England.
Bowles is a name associated with engraving and the map trade in the 18th
Carington Bowles 1724-1793 was a printer and publisher in London.
Succeeded by Bowles and Carver. I believe that a Carington shows up in
the family that came to Maryland.
John Bowles was a surveyor, of Iver, Bucks, just West of London 1736
John Bowles, 1701-1779 and Thomas Bowles, born 1712 were engravers of
maps and plans.
Thomas Bowles, flourished 1700-1763, was probably the father of John and
Thomas, retired 1764 , succeeded by Carington Bowles.
Bowles and Carver, Fl. 1794-1832 were sucessors to Carington.
Good to hear of some interest in old maps. They are invaluable. Good

>Who is Charles? does he have a Bowles connection? How could I contact him?
Apologies for being a bit cryptic :-) Charles is Charles Sankey - *not* a
BOWLES researcher himself. I found him on the Wessex-L, innocently asking
about SILIAGEAR at Compton Dundon.
The mention of Compton Dundon, which was on the Australian birth
certificate of *one* of Ann BOWLES's 15 children prompted me to email him
and ask if he had seen any BOLES/BOWLES there. And, that led to him
checking the films and finding her for me - the end of a *long* search.
>Now, the above looks very interesting. Infact it describes my family
>perfectly! Who is asking about Bowles's from Gillingham, Wincanton and
>Buckhorn Weston? I am sure we have a connection somewhere!
Well, it *is* your family :-) I summarized an email you sent to me to tell
Charles, who has stayed in touch.
Seems likely that we have a connection somewhere, but as yet I don't know
what it is. All the discoveries are too recent - but I'm working on it.
Sorry about the confusion - and welcome to the Bowles-L.

I found a map with the above name on an Internet site (while looking for a map of North Carolina with counties in the 1700s.)
