We have three additional sets of results to report today. Kits 30760,
31654, and 31906 each received their 13-25 marker results. See the
web page at
the updated results.
It has now been shown with a 25/25 match that kit 30760 and kit 29409
share a common Bowles ancestor. Kit 30760 traces back to Jeremiah
Bowles, born 1816 in Franklin Co VA. Kit 29409 goes back to Joseph L.
Bowles who was born about 1818, perhaps in Henry County VA.
Kit 31906 now has his 13-25 markers, so we need to wait for kit 34109
to receive his. Recall that they matched 11/12 on the first 12
markers, and both claim William and Sarah (Gum) Bowles for ancestors.
Kit 31654 continues to be an enigma. He traces back to Alexander H.
Bowles who was in Henry County VA, but doesn't yet seem to match up
with any others from that area. We definitely need additional folks
to test in this area.
Here is some census data that might be of interest to those searching
in the Franklin Co VA area.
