I would like to edit the messages I sent yesterday about James and Rebecca
Bowles. Something I should have do before I sent them. First, I believe
Elinor was born before James died and I have nothing on the child that James
believed Rebecca was with. Second, other researchers believe Rebecca
Wilkinson could be a daughter of James and Rebecca Bowles. I believe Rebecca
Wilkinson could be a daughter of Rebecca and ??? Bowles not James Bowles. I
need to find out what happen to Rebecca Wilkinson after William Wilkinson.

Subject: Rebecca Addison
James Bowles's wife Rebecca appears in note to Official Records
Dinwiddie as having m., 1st, (???) Bowles, brother of General Bowles of
the British Army, and as being a daughter of Thomas Addison by his w.
Elizabeth, dau. of Thomas Tasker, Treas. of Maryland.
Rebecca had married a Bowles before she married James Bowles and had a
daughter named Rebecca Bowles. This may or may not be the only child she
had before she married James Bowles.
I don't know who this ???? Bowles is at this time? Rebecca was married
three times not two.
