Were there any DRAKE or BOWIE Families in early Marion Co.like in 1790's or at the turn of the 19th century? I'm trying to find the names of my 3x great-grandfather William Bowie's parents. He was born somewhere in VA. in 1792. I also don't know the names of my 2x great-grandfather Thomas Drake's parents. He was born in 1810 somewhere in MD.Both families moved to OH. early;possibly Marion Co.
William Bowie married Meriah"Maria"Windham on 30 June 1820 in Belmont Co.,OH. Meriah was born 25 May 1797 in Loundoun Co.,VA. to George Windham & Mary Card.
Thomas Drake married Hannah Browning,born circa 1815 in MD.,on 25 Jan.1837 in Harrison Co.,OH. Do any of these names sound familiar to you?
