Washington County PAGenWeb Photo Gallery #2


Peter Bowman

born in Pennsylvania about 1844

parents Thomas & Ellen Bowman

Monongahela City, Washington County, PA.




I would like to submit the attached photo for the Washington County PAGenweb site.

I found this photo of Mr. Peter Bowman in my great grandmother's photo album.  Her name was Emma Gilkerson Morris and her album was dated December 25, 1891.

As far as I know, I am not related to Mr. Bowman.  However, my great grandfather, Joseph E. Morris, was an AME Minister at Bethel AME Church in Monongahela from 1907 to 1909.  It is possible Mr. Bowman was a family friend or parishioner.

After looking at the census I find that he was born in Pennsylvania about 1844.  I found him in 1850 living with his parents Thomas & Ellen Bowman in Monongahela City, Washington County, PA. I last found him in 1900 living with his mother, Ellen, in Monongahela Borough, Washington County, PA.  Is it possible that your group knows of this Bowman family?  I would like to send a copy of the photo to the family if possible.

Thank you,

Lee Carol Johnson Cook
