I want to share some information that I have recently received that I think
will be of great interest to those researching the William Bowles line in
Stokes Co. NC. I contacted Judy Cardwell recently -- partly to compare notes
on another of my NC lines, the Standleys -- but also to inquire about her
research into the connection between Standleys in Stokes/Surry Co. NC and
Bowles in that same area. I had been directed to a web site containing some
research that Judy had done on Surry/Stokes Co. Standleys. When I read
through the site, I realized that she had collected some very valuable data
on the Bowles line.
Here's what Judy wrote to me in her message:
I descend from the Stanley family that was first in Stokes County and
moved to Surry County in 1813. Jesse Stanley is my ancestor and he
married Agnes Bowles daughter of William Bowles. Agnes has brothers,
James, Alexander and John Bowles. Bowles is spelled sometimes as
Boles/Bowls/Bowles. These Bowles lived on Townfork Creek ajoining
my Stanley family.
The land entries transcibed by Judy can be found at the following URL:
The entries containing Bowles information are too extensive to post here, so
I encourage anyone interested in learning more to check out this site. I
should also explain that these entries are not just from Stokes and Surry Co.
NC, but also track back up into Botetourt Co., Virginia (on the line of
migration along the Great Wagon Road).
Seems to me that the Agnes Bowles who married Jesse Standley is a daughter of
the William Bowles who settled in Stokes Co. NC.
If you check out the data on this web site and have any thoughts or
conclusions to make, please post a message to the list. I think this is
pretty interesting data that could really add to our knowledge of this

Nancy is listed in her father's household in the

Sabemos que o Heliodoro (primeiro) era alemo , provavelmente de Erfurt.
Sabemos que o Heliodoro (terceiro) era portugues , de Viana do Castelo.
E o Eleodoro (segundo)? Era portugues ou brasileiro?
Pela referencia abaixo era portugues!!... e quando teria nascido?? se
em 1560 j· estava depondo!!! e em 1572 j· era juiz ordinario!!! Ser·
que nasceu em Portugal por volta de 1548 quando seu pai o Heliodoro
(primeiro) estava deixando a Alemanha, passando por Portugal, a
caminho do Brasil?
E o terceiro? como foi nascer em Portugal se o pai j· vivia no Brasil?

EBANOS, Eleodoro ( o segundo Eleodoro)
PortuguÍs de nascimento, morador em Santos, da capitania de S.
Vicente, onde o encontramos em 1560 depondo no processo movido pelos
poderes eclesi·sticos contra Joo de Boles e onde verificamos seu
nome grafado " Lyador Abanos". Em 1565, acompanhando a leva de
volunt·rios vicentinos que com Est·cio de S· foi ao Rio de Janeiro
combater os tamoios aliados dos franceses, fixou-se como morador
daquela cidade e ali casou-se e em 1572 foi juiz ordin·rio na
respectiva cmara, sendo vereador em 1585. A leva vicentina a que nos
referimos teve como comandante o alemo Eleodoro Hessus (o primeiro
Eleodoro), filho de Eobanos Hessus, feitor do engenho de aÁcar de

Subject: Boes Bible
Surname: Boes, Pfeifer, Inglis
Have recently obtained a Boes family bible from the Utica/Rome area. This
is from Deborah Pfeifer Rafferty's lineage, thru her Paternal
Helen Boes Pfeifer. The bible is a large one, ornately leather covered
and inscribed, from a Philadelphia maker, 1874. The data pages contain
listings of the children of John M and Bertha Boes including birth/death
dates, where applicable, and marriages to 1900. A resident of Rome had
it in her possession, from her grandmother Ruth Young, who was remarried
to a Ernest Young in 1965 and moved to Central Square , NY about 1968.
Connection to the Boes family is unknown at this time.

with Rye so I have a great interest in her and am with the help of Chris
Sanham in West Sussex creating a database of names. Our first line of
attack are the passenger lists and todate we have over 4100 names (aiming
for 4500). One resource I have is a 1875 Inspection Report which lists the

64th Virginia Infantry
The 64th Virginia Mounted Infantry Regiment and its precursor unit, the
Virginia Infantry Battalion, were recruited in the autumn of 1861 in Lee,
Wise and Buchanan counties, on the Kentucky frontier. The men jealously
guarded their right to remain in their home area as a solemn promise,
throughout the war, even while the infant Confederate States crumbled
The 64th Virginia Infantry was formally created on December 14, 1862, by
consolidation of the 21st and 29th Battalions of Virginia Infantry. The
was reorganized September 1, 1863 at Cumberland Gap and became known as
the 64th Virginia Cavalry.
General Humphrey Marshall wrote to Adjutant and Inspector General Samuel
Cooper on December 14, 1862, from Abingdon, Virginia.
I forward the muster in Rolls of Captain M. V. Kilbourne's Co. H, Capt.
Sparel Ratcliff's Co. F, Capt. Geo. N. Tyler's Co. K, Capt. Wm. F. Webb's
Capt. Harvey Gray's Co. E, Capt. Wm. W. Wynn's Co. G, Capt. Joshua E.
Hobbs Co. A, Wm. R. Boles Co. B, Capt. Lexington M. Day's Co. D. Five of
the first lettered of these companies formerly composed the 21st
Battalion Va. Vols. commanded by Lt. Col. Slemp. By Order of Sec. of War
I consolidated this battalion with a battalion organized in Lee & Scott
Counties by Mr. Saml. Salyers. Thereby forming a full Regiment, all
Muster Rolls of which are herewith transmitted except one muster roll
which was sent back to the Regiment for the Captain's signature. This
Regiment will now have to be numbered as a new Virginia Regiment laying
aside its battalion number (21). The muster rolls of the old Battalion's
companies have of course been returned heretofore but I thought it would
be preferred that all should be forwarded at the time the regimental
organization was completed. The Commissioned are asked for: Campbell
Slemp as Colonel, A. L. Pridemore as Lieut. Colonel, Jas. B. Richmond as
Geo. R. Johnson as Adjutant, H. C. Slemp is already Asst. Qr. Master,
John Riddle as Commissary, C. C. Johnston as Surgeon (now Assistant), Wm.
W. Morgrave as Assistant Surgeon
I Have the Honor to Be
Your Obt Servant
Brig. Gen. P.A.C.S.
The regiment was officially designated the 64th Virginia Infantry on
January 7, 1863.
ZION, JOHN P.: Co. G
ZION, WILLIAM PARSONS: Co. A
Company G, Captain William W. Wynn's Company was formerly Company B of
the 29th Battalion Virginia Infantry. Some members of this regiment had
served in the 94th Virginia Militia. Most of the Company was captured at
Cumberland Gap on September 9, 1863.
Company A, Captain Joshua E. Hobbs' Company, was formerly Company A of
the 21st Battalion Virginia Infantry. The only company commander was
Joshua E. Hobbs.
After the death of John Patterson, the land was partitioned between the
only son and his mother - she received one third and he received two
thirds (DBK 23 - 172, 467).

While doing some research in Pike County, Ohio, online, I came across a
Probate of Will
for Beuajah C Durham and went ahead and ordered it, hoping that someone
list is connected with him.
It names Rebecca Durham - wife,
Louisa Jones (wife of dec'd E O Jones) - daughter, George P. Durham -
Sallie E Durham - daughter, and Louisa R Durham- grand daughter. He
2 grandsons of his dec'd daughter Mary Durham - William Farris and
Beuajah Farris and
also one grandson of his dec'd son Samuel Durham - John Bowles Durham.
It is 3 pages and I will be more than happy to send it (no charge) to
anyone who is connected.
