I wonder if anyone has any record of a George Bowles, born Canada in
1841, who moved to the US to serve in the Civil War (under contract in
place of others wealthy enough to hire a replacement) and then after the
war served as a Sheriff in Maryland. Apparently, he married there and
was there until his death but thats all the info we have back here in

Dunwoody, (Atlanta) Georgia USA
I hope someone on this list might be able to help me. My primary interest, for historical research purposes, is to find information on REV. MARY LEONA MORELAND, who was the first woman to be ordained by a Congregational council--1889, Wyanet, IL.
Mary had an older sister by the name of NELLIE F. MORELAND, born 1860 CT/MA, who married [about 1880] WILLIAM J. BOWLES who was born on December 1855 in West Virginia.
Nellie and Mary were children of James W. and Harriet Moreland.
In the 1860 Federal Census, Nellie and her family were living in Westfield, MA.
Soon after the 1870 census, the family moved to New Ipswich, NH.
In the 1880 Federal Census, Mary and her Moreland family are in Fitchburg, MA. However, Nellie is married to William Bowles and both are living in Alto Twp [Stewart], Lee Co., IL. In the mid 1880's Mary went to IL where Nellie was.
In the 1900 Federal Census, Nellie and William appear in the same town--no children.
In the 1930 Federal Census, Nellie appears as a widow in Mt. Hope Twp of McLean Co., IL.
Mary died in 1918 in IL after serving numerous Congregational churches there..
Incidentally, James Moreland, the father of Mary and Nellie, was himself from West Virginia.
I appreciate any help. Thank you.

To question about children he answers that he had

Subject: [INFOUNTA] Obituary of Mrs. Margaret (Abner) Osborn Dehaven
Mrs. Abner DeHaven Passes Away
(Was old settler in Indiana and loved and highly respected by all who knew
April 3, 1917
Married nearly fifty Years Ago.
End came early Wednesday morning following a brief illness. Funeral held on
Mrs. Margaret Elizabeth DeHaven the wife of Abner B. DeHaven, passed away
early Wednesday morning at her home in this city on North Third Street. Her
illness was a brief one, covering only a few short weeks. The end came
peacefully, consciousness leaving her on the Su8nday preceding.
Mrs. DeHaven was the daughter of William Osborn, one of the pioneers of
Troy township, the family being one of the prominent ones of this part of the
county. She was born in DeKalb county, Missouri, March 19, 1844. When she was
but five years old, her parents came to Fountain count and settled on a farm
east of Covington, where they lived until their death. In 1868, she was
married to Abner DeHaven, thus joining two of the best families in
Had she lived but a short time longer, they would have enjoyed the privilege
that comes to but a few, that of celebrating their golden wedding anniversary,
fifty long years of loving devotion.
Four children were born to them all of whom are living and grown to fine
womanhood and manhood, all reflecting the fine Christian character of the
parents. They were Mrs. Lewis Clarkson, of New Richmond, Ross, who
resides on the
farm east of Covington, and Alva and Arista, of this city. Two
grandchildren, Zola and Earl, children of Mr. and Mrs. Ross DeHaven
The deceased early in life gave herself to God, uniting with the Bethel
Baptist church in 1861 under the pastorate of Elder P. T. Palmer, assisted by
Elder C. J. Bowles. During her entire life her Christian duty was never
neglected. Before moving to this city, several years ago, when the
farm life was
given up, she and her husband were a substantial aid to the Kentuck church and
since living in the city, the Baptist church here received their assistance.
She passed to the life eternal April 3, 1917, with a clear conscience and
a knowledge of a Christian life well and faithfully spent.
The funeral service was conducted on Thursday afternoon at the Baptist
Church in charge of the pastor, Rev. Breach and interment was made in Mt. Hope

Cumberland County, Pennsylvania Quarter Session Dockets, 1750-1785,
Diane E. Greene, A. G., 2000, 2001 - Out of Print! Softcover,
5-3/8x8-1/2, 347 pages, everyname index, and a really neat map
showing the Indian Paths, Villages, and Colonial Forts! These are
fairly generous abstracts, and per the publisher:
"Cumberland County, Pennsylvania was formed from Lancaster County in
1750. It was itself the parent county, in whole or part, of Bedford,
Franklin, Perry, and Mifflin Counties, all of which are situated in
south central Pennsylvania. Using a typescript collection of extracts
prepared by John G. Orr in 1925 and a microfilm copy of the original
records photographed by the LDS Church, Ms. Greene has compiled a
complete collection of abstracts of the Cumberland County Court
Quarter Session Dockets for the period 1750-1785. With the exception
of the period 1771-1785 for Bedofrd County, the Quarter Session
records extracted by Ms. Green apply to the original boundaries of
The Quarter Session Dockets themselves are somthing of a genealogical
miscellany. During the 1750s when the county seat was at
Shippensburg, for example, a number of the entries pertained to
criminal cases dealing with assualt and battery, larceny, neglect of
highway duty, defaults on payments, selling spirits without a
license, and horse thefts. When it came to the abstracts from the
1770s, by which time the court sessions were being held in Carlisle,
the dockets mostly listed the names of county officials, such as
constables and overseers of roads, members of grand juries, and
persons who had petitioned the court to lay out new roadways. Despite
the paucity of records demonstrating family relationships, the
Quarter Session Dockets have the great virtue of placing individuals
in Cumberland County at a particular point in time during the second
half of the eighteenth century. In fact, if the sought-after ancestor
whows up in the 10,000 name index at the back of the book, the!
researcher may have just found the elusive clue needed for
conducting further research in the records of Cumberland County." I
have noted additional years added to an indentured servant's time
because he ran away, another receiving twelve lashes and having to
reimburse the cost of a stolen ax handle, some of the petitions for
roads can almost pinpoint an ancestor's location - to my way of
thinking, these extracts are quite valuable. Surnames include:
