Re: James Bowen, Mecklenburg Co., VA
My Wyatt Bowen appears in the 1830 Stokes County NC census, so this timing seems about right. I have been unable to find him in 1820 census. According to my records, Wyatt died after 1843, so he would have still been alive at the time his brother wrote to Halifax.
I would like to get a copy of whatever records you have. Please email and I will share whatever I have that you are interested in.
