Re: Seeking Info on the family of Arthur Bowen
Dear Denise:Thank you for the info you sent.That was in MY STEFFY FAMILY CONNECTIONS published in 1990. However, SAR is requesting parent to child records found in Court Records (i.e. Wills, etc.).Right now, I am seeking to prove that Jane Byars (1810-1899) who married David Wampler (1798-1862) was the daughter of John Byars, Jr., and Nancy Agnes Bowen (1772-1845).Nancy lived in Smyth County, VA, and Jane lived in Knox Co, IN.I have written to Smyth Co., VA, to see if I can find the record of the power of attorney given to Peter Killinger on Oct. 20, 1845, of Smyth Co., VA. by David Wampler to collecthis wife inheritance for Jane in Smyth Co., VA.I am trying to get a SAR Supplemental Application through Lily McIlhaney Bowen.Capt. Arthur Bowen was in the Rev. War and I have already proved him for SAR.Any info that you might have or know of, I would appreciate knowing about it.Thank you for your response.
