Re: Joseph and James Daniel Bowman
I saw your post from 2009 saying that you'd found them in 1860 in TN.What is your source for both parents dying during the war?
Have you seen this family on the 1900 census for Unicoi, TN:
BOWMAN, Joseph b. July 1823 in NC, married 47 yr, both parents b. NC
wife Katherine b. Aug 1830 in NC, 7 children born, 7 children living, both parents b. NC
son Daniel b. Apr 1852 in TN
son John b. Dec 1869 in TN, married 1 yr
dau-in-law Sallie K. b. Mar 1882 in TN, no children, both parents b. TN
They were in Buffalo, Unicoi, TN in 1880.Children were:Daniel, Mary, David, Eliza, William and John.Surname was spelled BOUGHMAN.
Ok, further looking reveals a death record for the above Daniel BOWMAN, b. 4-Apr-1851 in Carter Co, TN, d. 15-Feb-1923 in Unicoi Co, TN.Parents Josef BAUMON and Catharine CLINE.These dates do not match with what you have, so despite similarities, not the family you are looking for.
What other information do you have about James Daniel BOWMAN?Did he marry and have children?Do you know where he lived?
