Re: Thomas Bowdre Exr. to estate of Joseph Cooper 1828, GA
Your Thomas Bowdre may be the brother to Hays Bowdre.Per Hays Bowdre's will, his brother is listed as Thomas J. Bowdre and he asks that his daughter (Harriet) "take good care of her grandmother Mrs. Sarah McKeen."
I am interested in who Mrs. Sarah McKeen was.
Hays Bowdre d. in 1856 Richmond Co., GA.His death was listed in NY Evening Post and a notation that he was 64 yrs. old, d. Augusta, Monday, 27th.
On the 1830 Richmond Co., GA census the slaves of Mrs. McKeen on p. 276, Hays Bowdre is on p. 288.
Any ideas on who Mrs. Sarah McKeen (McCain) was?
