This is what I have on Nathan Anderson Bowles. At this time I don't know for
sure who his father was? I believe he had two brothers older than him;
William Thomas, John Fleming Bowles. I also believe they were related to
Elijah Bowles that came to Barren Co in 1809 with wife Mary. Elijah was
probably their grandfather. I don't think Mary was their grandmother,
because Elijah married Mary about 1780. Claibourn Bowles was their first son
born 1782 in Henrico Co, VA. The best lead I have is a William Bowles in
Barren Co about 1816 that I don't think is William Thomas or William Bowles
a son of Thomas Phillip Bowles, who were in Barren Co at that time. Not to
make this post any longer, I will post on who I think this William Bowles
