So far,I have found 3 Bowie marriages in Belmont Co.At least two of them are connected by marriage if not blood.They were in date order:
William Bowie married Mary Mulligan, 1807
William Bowie married Meriah"Maria"Windham, 30 June 1820(my 3x great-grandparents)
Eli Bowie married Elizabeth Windham(Meriah's sister), 19 Feb.1838
Are the two William's the same man or 2 different men? Is Eli Bowie a younger brother to my William or not since they married sisters? Meriah & Elizabeth were the d's/o George Windham & Mary Card(Curd) of Belmont Co.,OH.
