We have corresponded earlier with the BOWMAN/QUALLS connection.
I must admit that the BOZEMAN possibility opens up a whole lot of new doors.I had wondered where that information that Josiah BOMAN came from Bladen Co. originated. I have seen Almond's book as well as some other sources that make that statement, but nothing as to what it was based on.Will you keep me posted on developments here?
Thank you for the page number in the 1840 census.I had apparently missed Isaac and Cynthia.I do get seasick looking at that microfilm.I will go back and look again.Is the fact that Isaac and Cynthia do not appear in the 1850 census and nine year old Josiah is living with the elder Josiah the reason that you think Isaac and Cynthia died before 1850? Do you have any other reason to think so?I have seen Josiah's grave at Shiloah and Josiah H.'s at Davis Cemetery.Do you know where Isaac and Cynthia might be buried?I counted their deaths before 1850 as likely, but couldn't exclude other possibilities---migration to other parts of the country for one. I would really like to know more on this one.
If my memory serves me correctly, it was your posting that led to the ALLRED question.You are right that there are no ALRED given names among Josiah's sons.Are you leaning toward any of the other proposed surnames for Elizabeth?If this BOZEMAN connection turns out to be the one, it might also help with Elizabeth's surname.Again, I would appreciate staying in the loop on this one.
