I hate to appear to be mean and nasty. This digest and list is for
genealogy. I understand the intention of the posters that give us
prayer requests and causes that we all need to be concerned about. I
feel very strongly about those things, but this is the wrong time and
place for those postings.
Requesting prayer is a great thing to do. It shows the love and concern
that we have for others. Why not simply e-mail each of those people.

I have found information from several different sources that lists Swimpfield
Begley, Private Co. G 47 Regiment KY Volunteer, died on October 16, 1910 in
Laurel County, KY.
At this time, I would like to offer a correction to his place of death.
Swimpfield Begley died on October 16, 1910 in Delvinta, Lee County, KY. He
died at his daughter, Hettie Dunigan's, home.
Swimpfield Begley's wife, Mary (Davidson) Begley, also died at her daughter,
Hettie Dunigan's home in Delvinta, Lee County, KY on June 8, 1910.
This information was obtained from Swimpfield Begley's Civil War Pension File
If anyone has contradicting information, that is documented, please contact
me to discuss this issue further.
P.S. I descend from Swimpfield and Mary through their son, Albert Begley who
married Mary Warren.
Does anyone have a book listing the deaths in Owsley County, KY between 1860 and 1870? I am trying to find when Daniel B.C. Capps died, he was the wife of Nancy Hurst Capps.
I appreciate any help anyone can give me.

I made a mistake on the address for Armo Park. IT IS ON ST RD 741 NOT 725.
Thank you Norma for the following email. I think you saved some people from
having to say bad words about me.
I read your directions to the Armco Park and see you need to make a
correction. I live in Middletown, got my map out to make sure, and you're
going to have a lot of people lost going your way! :)
Armco Park is on the west side of Rt. 741 between Rt. 122 and Rt 63.
Get those corrections out!!
Have a nice day,
1. Thanks to all of you that sent emails. I am looking forward to meeting
all of you that can make the reunion.
2. Book orders will be filled next week when we get back from Ohio.
3. I will answer emails, as I can, after I mail books.
4. As always, I will gladly share any info I have, as health allows.
5. We will not leave for Ohio until Thursday.
I'm just people.
Back in the 50's we said, "People are dumber than anybody."
David Moore and list members,
Forwarded an email from David Moore onto my McGeorge cousin Jack Bowman. He also
has Bowmans, etc., in his tree. Jack sent to me this morning and I am now forwarded
onto you all. Hope it is of help.

> CORNELIUS BOWMAN SR., HIS PROBABLE ORIGIN
> The national archives files on Cornelius Bowman file (compiled by Walker Hume
> Bowman and apparently others) promote the now widely held view that Cornelius

> Thanks to research by Edward Lee Bowman, we are beginning to get a clearer view

> contains the following marriage entry. McMaster records the marriage as
> Married in 1764 March 19th
> Cornelius Boman
> Susanna Painter
> The Peaked Mountain Presbyterian meeting house is believed to have been located
> about seven miles south of Harrisonburg, Rockingham Co., VA. The original

> entries as an interpretive and comparative tool. My analysis reveals that
> bride's name was originally penned as "Eliz.th" (superscripted "th") Pointer
> (not Painter), but subsequently "Susana" was heavily inked over the Eliz.th.
> This strongly suggests she bore both the name Susannah as well as Elizabeth, and
> it explains why her name appears as Susannah in documents, though she was often
> called "Betsy" by the family.
> As noted, the handwritten record suggests Susana/Elizabeth's surname was
> Pointer, not Painter. The writer consistently formed his "a's" with slightly
> open tops and a strong right-hand descender, whereas his "o's" have closed tops
> and a weak descender. Although she may indeed been a Painter, it is clear to me
> that her surname was recorded as Pointer.
> The date of the marriage is in agreement with the estimated dates of birth of
> Cornelius and Susannah's eldest sons, John and William (b. ca. 1760/65) and fit
> Cornelius' date of birth of 1740 from the Thomas Bowman Bible. That would
> provide Cornelius with a believable age of about 24 at his marriage to Susannah.
> It also fits well with Susannah's estimated date of birth (ca. 1745), but
> points to her place of birth as possibly Augusta Co., VA, instead of the oft-
> quoted "Wilkes Co., NC". The Rockingham County location of the marriage
> (Rockingham County formed 1778 from Augusta County, VA) lies in the heart of the

I have been trying for two weeks to get out this email. I have had to settle
for recycling an old letter. I will send this to several list, so to save
your time & frustration, delete other emails from me with the same subject.
Most of the time I am not able to post my queries or answer your email.
I can talk on the phone when called at 616-641-7071. Those of
you who have my book, "Morris Fork Kentucky," know my story. My
illness has not changed in years. For special events, I can sometimes
channel my energy and "get up for the game." This weekend is one of
the highlights of the year for me and I hope some of you can share it
with me & 100 or 200 other cousins.
If you live near or within driving distance of Middletown, Ohio, I
would love to meet you at the Morris Fork Reunion in Ohio. It is
Saturday, 10/14/2000 starting at noon at Armco Park. Armco Park is located on
the west side of St Rd 725 between Route 63 & 122. This is east of
Middletown & Hamilton Ohio & close to Cincinnati & Dayton.
Bring your drinks, sorry no alcohol, and a dish to pass. Armco charges
$2.00 to get in. We will be inside a building. We always have some of
the best food ever cooked. If you play any musical instrument, bring
it. We will do some singing & dancing.
I have spent the last few years working on a scrapbook of Morris Fork
people & the Sam VanderMeer family. I am not finished but I will have some
of it there. I have many old & rare pictures that I will share.
Please bring any old family pictures that you will share & your pedigree
Even if you do not know one person there, find me & I will introduce
you to many of your cousins. I'm sure you will enjoy our southern
cooking & hospitably.
To everyone that I now owe email, I will try to get something out to
you when I get back from Ohio.
If you can come, you can email me until Wednesday morning at
LMorris116(a)aol.com. I will be in Fairfield area, for about a week if health
allows.My niece, Kim Tabor, number is 513-858-1271 or email me at
I would love to meet every cousin on every list. I do not think that
will happen but if YOU come, I will have the pleasure of meeting you.

GREETINGS to the list... I was asked this question recently (yesterday)
and I thought I had shared this with you all some time ago, but here it is
again in case others missed it...
FROM MARY HARRIS: I have a Cornelius Bowman Sr married to a Susannah Abbott
as parents of known children John (b1766) and Cornelius Jr (b1779). You
think this Susannah Abbott is your Susannah Painter?
MY REPLY: Nothing is in concrete with regard to family history... just when
you think you got it all and that you got it right... "BOOM"... new
evidence surfaces and blows your mind. I don't actually have this
document in my hand. I could not afford it at that time and now that I can
afford it, I can't find out how to get it again, BUT I was sent the following
info several years ago... a marriage record was found in the session book of
Peaked Mountain and Cook's Creek Presbyterian Churches in the Rockingham
County VA area... Cornelius BOMAN & Susannah PAINTER were married on 19 Mar
After I had digested on this for a spell, I now have a "hunch" that our old
Cornelius Bowman may have had a "first wife" who was "possibly" named
ELIZABETH "BETSY" ABBOTT and that she died prior to this marriage in 1764 and
I further "speculate" that ELIABETH was the mother of the first several
children of Cornelius Sr. those being WILLIAM E. BOWMAN, b. 1760-65, who
married ELIZABETH McCLAIN and JOHN BOWMAN, b. 1760-65, who married SARAH
SMITH. Those two oldest Bowman Boys, William & John, always seemed to be
away from the rest of the family for some reason and now I speculate that it
is because their actual mother had died and now they were step-children to
the rest of the family, but I remind you, that is JUST A GUESS.
Let me ask you this as a group??? How many Cornelius Bowmans could have
married Susannahs in 1764 and not have been ours? answer: probably ZERO...
I am confident that our Cornelius BOWMAN married Susannah PAINTER, which is
aka BENDER... Bender is German and means PAINTER... We got a lot to learn
about these foreign speaking ancestors of ours that's for sure... I will say
this, No people working their Bowman family history in Rockingham County
will claim us to their BOWMANs which were there, OR to the PAINTERs which
were passing by there at that time (1760's) , BUT, on the other hand, they
will not deny that this is our Cornelius and Susannah... WHY??? #1 they
don't have a Cornelius and Susan listed in their genealogy... AND #2
because our Cornelius apparently left with his new wife for NC and SC soon
after he was married to her... Common sense tells me that our Cornelius
Bowman was kin to all those Early Bowmans of VA somehow and that all Bowmans
which were there in 1760 were probably all kin to one another. Finding the
"shred" of pure evidence linking them all together is probably impossible now
OR it is written in German and has not been translated yet...
Have a nice day,
