Tracy Bowes Henchbarger
Query: Am trying to track Thomas BOWES. He is listed as a land owner in CENTRE COUNTY LAND WARRANTEES, 1801-1891, which in web seach only gave me his name. Am not sure if the original land documents call out the exact land which he owned. b. 1760 (where?) d. 5 Dec 1834 in PA Naturalized 6 Oct 1806 in Howard Township. He may have lived in what became Burnside Township. Was told he was an immigrated (from where-England-Ireland) and arrived on the ship, Eppy. But I can't find record of a ship named Eppy. Am wondering if a group of friends came to America and settled together in Centre County--perhaps around Snoe Shoe? Perhaps from Clones, Ireland? He had four children, David, Mains, John and Margaret. His son, John Bowes (b. approx. 1794, d. 1859) married Elizabeth Lucas (b. approx. 1796-Ireland?, d. approx 1881, buried in Pine Glen, Askey Cemetary, Snow Shoe.)
