1. JOHN1 BOWLES, SR. was born in Pennsylania, and died Bet. November
02, 1793 - August 19, 1794 in Washington Cty., VA. He married MAY MARY,
is this possibly Mary Polly York?, I remember seeing her listed as a widow with a John
Boles as her grandson in a census. The reason this census caught my eye was because I also
have Yorks and it struck me as being somewhat strange as my father is a Boles and my
mother a decedent of the Yorks. I had, had no idea that my Boles and Turners might have
been related until I saw that page in the census. I have contacted another York
researcher and she thought it strange also as she was not able to make a connection
between the 2 families.
I wish I could be more help with this as this family is also my mystery. Another Boles
cousin and myself have been trying to make the connection as we both know it exists. Just
can't make the connection.
