I just noticed the following item on eBay which might be very important to the right Bowles descendant or collector.
Here is the description from the eBay posting:
This is just an incredible collection one Mother made while her son was at War. This book consists of several items. It has alot of collectables and letters. It has a ton of old post cards. Quite a bit of Black Americana and alot of teasing. It was typical of the day, but now quite a few of the cards a politically incorest. Who cares. It was part of history. I will do my best to describe it all. The bok belonged to Mrs. Wm. Bowles. Her son was PFC. William A Bowles. He has an address of Co B 16 Battallion 4th Replacement regiment, In Ft. George G. Meade Maryland. Ther is his pay record with an insurance policy for h8is mother. There is a Nooky Ration Card. and a Newspaper clippijng from the Humboldt, Eureka Times dated March 17, 1942. It has the different ranks. Also a Doughbuoy Map of the Probable direction of thrust by the 1st Canadian army near Cologne and Holland. The inside of the book has a cup from the fountain of youth to all kinds of post cards. Most of the cards ar!
e rare and collectable because of thier political incorrectness. See all the pictures. I took as many as I could put in the add, but there is so much more. This is a hard to find personal part of the War. The cards alone list for several hundred. I will start it at 19.99 w/ NO RESERVE!! This is a personal part of the war. I recieved this from his daughter who could no longer look at it. He had recently passed away. I have agreed to sell it. Hopefully it will go to some one who will make it shine through history.

My Emeline Bowles was born abt 1837 in Ohio to William Riley Bowles and Catherine Eller. Emeline married William E Goldsmith on 11 Oct 1857 and Emeline died young 19 Sept 1874 in Preble co OH.
I'm trying desperately to find more information on William E Goldsmith and his parents and ancestors. It was suggested to me to try this board to see if anyone had any information.
Thanks so much in advance!

I have a little data from Halifax Co. VA. Allen was in the 1830 census.
There are also a few Bowles marriages. I'll copy what I have below.
Those marriages suggest there were two Allen Bowles -- one older and
possibly a son. Parthenia may be daughter of the older Allen. Also, looks like
this Bowles line is pretty close to the surname East, so that might help track
the Bowles back up into Virginia.
It's likely that some of these Halifax Bowles moved south into the
Caswell/Person Co area. of NC. When you look for your guys, be sure to look at the
spellings of BOAZ and BOWES because those two spellings are used frequently in
the southern VA & northern NC areas.
Do you have information on the children of Parthenia and Absolum Hughes?
Sometimes the names of children can suggest who they were named for, so post
that to the list. Also post whatever you know about the Hughes line because
there are other Bowles in VA who married into the Hughes lines.

I have had a similar experience. My line uses BOLES as their last
name. I spent years looking for the death of the immigrant and found my immigrant
by a fluke and at time of his death or by misspelling of newspaper I found
out he had a tragic accident and was killed as a BOWLES and like you all other
information was correct
Hi List Members!
Thought I would share a recent discovery with you.
I had searched for my children's grandfather for several years without
success in the 1930 Census for Virginia.
His name is JOHN WESLEY BOWLES. The whole family seemed to drop out of sight
from 1920 until them.
One day with a little extra time on my hands and thanks to Ancestry.com's new
search capabilities, I looked for all the males of his age in Montgomery
County, Virginia where I knew almost for certain they still lived.
Lo and behold there was a JOHN at the right age with the last name BORNLES!
Can you imagine that?
Evidently whoever entered the data misinterpreted the spelling of the last
But, there they were, the BOWLES family with wife and two sons living with
the stepfather, SAMUEL PETER RICHARDS.
I just could not believe my eyes after all this time searching every possible
way I knew how.
Moral of the story..Don't give up. Try yourself using ages of the people you
are looking for. Sometimes you have to go a year older or younger according
to the month the census was taken, but you just might get lucky like I did.
I suspect those of you interested in John Fleming Bowles Sr. who
married Malinda Holtzclaw are already aware of this information, but
perhaps it will be of some use.
Malinda Holtzclaw Bowles was a daughter of Henry and Sarah (Shirley)
Holtzclaw. Henry's parents were Henry and Susannah (surname unknown)
Holtzclaw; his grandparents were John and Catherine (Russell)
Holtzclaw. Catherine had earlier been married to a Thomas (surname)
and widowed. John Holtzclaw was a son of Jacob and Anna Margreth
Jacob, who was a schoolmaster at Oberfischbach (Germany) from
1708-13, came to Virginia in 1714 with his family which included
John. This Holtzclaw family's roots have been traced back to the
early 1600s in Germany.
For more information, see B. C. Holtsclaw's book, Ancesty and
Descendents of the Nassau Siegen Immigrants to Virginia 1714-1750.
Dear Bowles Listers,
I know I said that I'd be incognito for a while, but here's
an exception. I thought that this would stir up some conversation
that might keep a few of you busy in the interim. As usual, I don't
know anything about these PML postings; you'll have to write to Vikky
if you want to find out more.
Very best to all,
RootsWeb's Personalized Mailing List picked this up and sent
it to me on 6 July 04. Would you be able to tell me a little more
about the Wilburn/Bowles/Bolling marriages? And may I post it on the
Bowles list for all our members to read?
Yours with best wishes,

Thanks for writing. Alas! You may use my information, but then you
might not wish to do so. As a researcher, I am by no means a purist.
And to some people, this is off putting.
But I research to my own satisfaction and based upon what I uncover,
I draw up my own conclusions. In other words, I don't have a Website
showing tons of documents and other supporting evidence. Instead, I
merely use my Family Tree Maker and add entries as I have reason to
believe they fit with other entries. (I now have over 30,000 entries
and this enables me to see patterns of who connects to whom and other
kinships. And since I do have many gaps, I rely on cluster families,
patterns, naming practices and migration routes. So have done all of
I'll zap you a few tidbits and you can decide if you wish you use my
compiling of cluster families or not.
As has been proven (not by me) Robert Bolling b 1646 m Jane Rolfe in
VA. This union produced Jane Bolling b 1680 in VA.
(Now to back up a bit. As history notes, John Rolfe set sail in May
of 1608 from Swansea Wales on a vessel known as the 'Sea-Venture'.
This vessel joined up with a fleet on the Thames River, which was
under the command of Capt (later) Admiral Christopher Newport.
In all, seven vessels, including the 'Sea-Venture' set sail for
Jamestown, VA. The 'Sea-Venture' was under the leadership of Capt
Thomas Gates when a hurricane erupted and the 'Sea-Venture' sprang a
leak and was also thrown off course. But luck would have it that all
passengers managed to reach the shores of Bermuda. Stranded for ten
months, this group finally were able to fell some trees and craft
together two small ships and managed to reach Jamestown in May of
1610. When these new arrivals set foot on Virginia's shores they were
shocked to see starving colonists, many who had lost their minds
during what history notes as the 'starving years".
You may well be familiar with this story....(Reportedly, but without
proof) John Welsbourne (later surname known as
Welbourne/Wilbourn/Wilburn etc. was also a passenger from the
'Sea-Venture'. John Welsbourne was noted on the Eastern Shore in
1623, following the 1622 Indian massacre. He lived next to John
Wilkins and his wife Goodwife Wilkins who were both passengers on the
Fast forward....Gideon Bowles (from the Bolling line) b c 1734 died
May 1 1798 in Goochland, VA m Charity HUGHES. One of their many
sons, Hughes Bowles b Feb 7 1760 died 1808 in Madison Co KY m Mary
Shipp. (Same Shipp line as Harry S Truman)
About the same time that Gideon Bowles was born, Lewis Wilburn was
making his entrance into the world. (He was one of the sons of
Richard Wilburn and Anne Whitlock Wilburn)
Lewis Wilburn b c 1732 m Mary Shipp. Same Shipp line (family then
living in Goochland, VA, on Lickinghole Creek in 1751.
Somehow that I cannot yet determine, the family of Charity Hughes
ties in with these very early Jamestown VA families. What we do know
is that a sister of Pocahontas, (see the Pocahontas genforum for
starters) married a man known as 'Trader Hughes'
I happen to believe that Trader Hughes (immigrant from Wales) is the
ancestor of Charity Hughes who m Gideon Bowles. (Unproven).
At any event, the Wilburns and Hughes were intertwined for literally
hundreds of years.
The Bowles or Bolling and Hughes were also intertwined and well,
let's jus say that I have lots of entries in my database that make me
believe these families were all related, albeit often very distantly.
Now have I offered up enough confusion? Seems that this is what I do best.
Again thanks for writing and let me know if you want anymore tidbits.
Cheers Vikky in San Diego.
Hughes Bowles b Feb 7 1760 (or at least Christened on this date)
m Mary Shipp on Nov 12, 1783 in Goochland VA. (marriage bond for
Mary Shipp) signed by (Uncle) Lewis Wilburn, husband of Mary
Shipp...aunt to younger Mary Shipp.
According to an item in the Seymour Family Genforum, it mentions that Gov.
John Seymour was married to Margaret Bowles, daughter of Charles Bowles and
This is the reference
Based on the above, it may be then that Margaret is a sister of Valentine.

I have recently started to look into my ancestors. I am seeking any information regarding my father's Uncle - Charles Bowles. My father told me that Charles emigrated to the USA from Norwich, Norfolk, England. He eventually became Mayor of his town. His political aim was to rid the town of gangsters but when he started reforming he was shot and killed. So little information, I do not know any dates or locations and the task seems impossible to me.
All my surviving relatives have been asked but none can shed any further light upon the situation. I have tried numerous internet searches using all the pertinent keywords I can think of, without success. I got the impression from my late father that this could have happened in the first decades of the 20th Century but I have no evidence to support that.
I am just hoping that this just might trigger a memory in someone somewhere in the great USA.

Subject: 2003 Kentucky Ancestors V38-3
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="US-ASCII"
I just received my Spring 2003 edition of Kentucky Ancestors Vol. 38, Number
3 from the KY Historical Society.
I was surprised and thrilled to find the article on Tombstone Inscriptions,
Jefferson and Shelby Counties.
In particular is the inscription "In Memory of Mary D. (Dorsey) Bowles,
Consort of Capt. J.B. Bowles, Born April 30th, 1804, Departed this life October
Mary Dorsey Winchester Bowles was my ggg grandmother. She and Joshua Bethel
Bowles had one daughter before Mary's very early death. That daughter was
Mary Edmonia Bowles born 20 Jan. 1822. She married Richard C.
They had a daughter Mary Bethel Barbour Bell who was my great grandmother.
Joshua Bethel Bowles remarried (Grace Shreve) and is buried in Cave Hill
Cemetery in Louisville.
This is the first reference I have seen to Joshua Bethel Bowles as "Captain".
Does anyone know in what capacity he served as a Captain? He was born in
1795 so it would not have been in the Revolutionary War. He died in 1873. He
would have been old for the Civil War, was it 1812, perhaps.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Subject: Biographical Sketches and Immigrant Profiles
Tina Vickery will be working on the Immigrant Profiles this weekend,
posting them to the St. Mary's County page at Genweb. As soon as
they're up, I'll be sending out a message. Randy Dunavan still has a
pile that need to be done, so jump in and help if you can.
I'm sending along a biographical sketch that Judith Burger did on
Bernard Drury. She was concerned because he lived a quiet farmer's
life and did not achieve fame or notoriety. I want to assure you
that this is not the object of this project. We want to hear about
him because he was from St. Mary's County. That's fame enough as far
as I'm concerned.
This bio by Judith will give you an idea of how these can be done.
Bernard Drury was baptized June 16, 1771 at St. Francis Xavier
Catholic Church, St. Mary's County Maryland, the son of Philip Drury
"conjugat". The sponsors at his baptism were the "sister of Philip &
brother of "uxoris". Philip, his father who married Ann Newton
September 4, 1770 at St. Francis Xavier in St. Mary's County, named
his son Barnard and his wife Ann as executors of his will which he
signed Jan 9, 1795, in St. Mary's County, Maryland.
In 1794, Bernard Drury is listed as a member of the St. Mary's
County, Maryland Militia.
Other records which shed some light on the life of Bernard Drury
include his marriage to Catherine Wimsatt the daughter of Robert
Wimsatt and Dorothy Abell, on November 7, 1796, in St. Mary's County,
Maryland. In 2002, Don Drury found that in 1798 Bernard Drury was
living on a farm of 1226 acres owned by Zachariah Forrest in Lower
Resurrection Hundred. This property had one dwelling house worth
about $50.00 and four out-buildings. The name of the property was not
listed. Bernard Drury and his wife Catherine are found on the 1800
census of St. Mary's County, Maryland with one son and two daughters,
all under the age of 10 years. On the 1810 Census of St; Mary's
County, Maryland Bernard Drury and his wife have four sons, three
under the age of 10 years and four daughters, 3 under the age of 10
years listed in the household. It was after this census that Bernard
Drury and his family migrated to Kentucky for he is found as a member
of The Washington County, Kentucky Militia !
in 1813: "At a Court Martial for the trial of delinquents in the 4th
Regt. Kentucky Militia held at Presby Smith's on the 26th of March,
1813 Capt. Spalding's Company Bernard Drury, same company, plead
inability to the Court, after investigation ordered that he be
continued on the list."
Very little information can be found illuminating the life of Bernard
Drury thereafter. Sr. Bridged Clifford, SCN, Archivist shared this
data from the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth Archives in 2002:
Bernard Drury (grandfather) and Michael Bishop put up the chimney of
Father Nerincks's house at Loretto.
Benedict (father) and uncle Nace built the school house at St.
Vincent's Academy Uniontown, KY and assisted in building St. Ambrose
Church. Benedict went to school first with Bishop Spalding and
Father Abell in Washington County and later went to school at St.
Children of Bernard Drury: Maria (Francesca, SL); John married &
died without a family; Catherine married Mulhorn; Susan, SL; Ann
Clare married Clements; Elizabeth (Marcelline, SL); William married;
Robert died soon after marrying; Joseph living in 1888; Ignatius
married twice, copied from pencilled note evidently written in 1888.
All these were aunts & uncles of S. Benedicta, children of her
Bernard Drury died July 26, 1819 in that part of Washington which is
now Marion County, Kentucky and was buried in the Old Holy Name of
Mary Church Cemetery, Calvary, in what is now Marion County,
Kentucky. No will or probate records have been discovered to date.
His widow, Catherine Wimsatt Drury, married second John Greenwell,
September 5, 1823 in Washington County, Kentucky and she died March
22, 1838 and is also buried in Old Holy Name of Mary Church Cemetery.

Subject: Re: [ZA-IB] Birth Certificates 1895: Albany
Please could you clear up something for me. From the book "Pringles of
the Valley" Page 73 the death date for George Rivers Lister HAYTER is
given as 8 July 1907. Paul also has 1897 as do you, but no references.
Which date is correct?? Where did you find the 1897 date?
Do you have the names and details of the other children for George
Henry FORD? Perhaps it is Charles who was the other son.....do you
have a birth date for him? I have an approximate date of 1900 but
don't think this is correct.
Cornelius TARR is the son of James TARR and Hannah BRENT. Grace is the
daughter of Daniel DAVIES and Elizabeth Sarah BRENT.

This child should be George Rivers Lister HAYTER who died 8 July 1897.
However, if there were 3 living children when he was born, then I am
missing a son somewhere. I have only two daughters born prior to
1895, namely Eileen Lenore Lister HAYTER and Isobel Mary Lister
HAYTER. THe name of the residence would be Slaai Kraal.
