I'm a Bowie, I've worked on Bowie genealogy longer than any other in this collection, and we have pretty good information of over 100 Bowies. But, almost nothing on my direct Bowie ancestors before 1901. The first public record I've found of grandfather Arthur Bowie 1881-1941 is a newspaper clipping of his arrivial in Newport in 1901. The obit for his mother Caniza? Reeves in 1906 gives some names and infomation that census confirms. However, I have not been able to find Arthur or his parents or sisters in any census from 1860 thru 1900. I would really appreciate any help or hints that might help find them.
Extended Family Here are the families that mostly connect at my generation, some don't connect but may be friends or historical interest. This presentation doesn't include any living people, but is visible to most search engines so most searches land in this area.
We'd appreciate your help to find more family photos and checking the labels on the photos we already have. I'm pretty sure that some are mis-label by either name or date.
