Dear Ken,
If you send me your home address I will copy what I have of the Bowman's and send it to you. It's easier for me this way. It's to much to me to email.
A lot of the Bowman information is in the old archives Fayette County, Pa. message board.
My email address is:
Best Regards

Parents of Elias Oliver Bowman
Hi Ken,
I don't have the burial place for Elias Oliver Bowman parents, Elias Oliver b. abt 1810-1812, d. bet. 1860-1867,and Catherine Smith Bowman b. btw.1814-1815, d. bet. 1860-1867.
But I do know who Elias Oliver Bowman parents are: Elias Oliver Bowman b. abt. 1782 and Sarah were b. NJ, according to the 1850 Census in Grant District,Preston County, VA/WV. The removed from Fayette County, Pa to Preston County. I haven't been able to locate a burial place for them.
Catherine Smith Bowman mother was Nancy Smith according to a petition in June 1867 for custody of the underage children of Catherine and Elias Oliver Bowman by Jacob Bowman.
Elias b. abt. 1782 parents are George b. bef. 1855, d. bef. Nov. 1817 and Mary Bowman, had land on Hazel Run, Monongalia County, VA/WV.
If anyone knows were these Bowman's are buried let me know.

Finally finding Family
Hi Ken,
Thanks so much for all your research and hard work.
I am the granddaughter of Edward and Gertrude Byerely.
Their son Edward Jr. Was my biological father. I just found out yesterday in my search for him that he passed away in 1987. Words can not express my disappointment at not ever being able to meet my father or grandparents .... But it helps to see some of their history. My hope from here is to as least find some Aunts or cousins or distant relatives. So the search goes on. Wondering what your link to them is?
Again thanks for all you work & I am in Pittsburgh , Pa so If I can assist any one in tracking family in this area please don't hesitate to contact me.
