BE CAREFUL HERE!
"The Bowies and their Kindred" only very loosely ties this James back to the Maryland Bowies. Page 258 and 259 statements such as "In the absence of documentary evidence, family tradition must be accepte.." and "If such was the case" and "It is not know where...but seems to be".
"The Rezin Bowie Family of Louisiana" by Virginia Lobdell Jennings is a much more scholarily research of this Jame Bowie and his decendents. Wills and land records are used to better document the names, familys, places and dates. At the same time comparasions are made with the claims in WW Bowie book.
Most of what is here for decendents of James Bowie and Sarah Whitehead is taken from Jenning's book above
