I've been lazy about posting since my brick wall is the same as many other
descendants of Gideon Bowles. Actually, with the number of lines I have
been working at one time, I'm pretty satisfied with getting back to Gideon.
However, Harry Sutcliffe has raised some interesting points concerning
Farquhar's lineage for Gideon. I have a copy of an article that Harry wrote
on the subject:
From: Leathel Bowles [mailto:LEATHEL@worldnet.att.net]
Sent: Saturday, July 31, 1999 4:13 AM
Subject: Over 80 and counting
I have 81 messages in my " Bowles Connection " folder. I know some
are duplicates,what ever the number is, it is a few more than expected.
I really wanted to see over half post, it could be a busy day, yet. I
believe most of us learned something and connections can go on for
months to come, you that sent yours in will benifit the most.
Couple things I wrote that need more research. I have read for years
that Mary Ship Bowles went to Barren Co, and she may have. If she
didn't, I don't know the Mary Bowles in the 1808 census is, and that is
what needs to be found out.
Second,the Gideon Bowles post most came from the Will, some dates
and marriage came from a CD and/or post. I am interested in the marriage
information. Some think VA and others CT, I think you know what is
needed to solve this, and if you have it please post it or if you have
any kind of information on this please post. I have always heard Jenny
and Jincy were for Virginia, can anyone help me on that.
I would like to do a couple more things starting next week. Those
being Marriages and Surnames. This should tell us more on where they
were at a given time and what group they were in. This can be a little
tricky, but may give you some information you had not thought of.
Let's just keep on doing what we are suppose to be doing. Posting.
Many, Many, Thanks
PS, I thank it has be fun so far.
