BOWMAN- I have copies of pages from an old Bowman Bible giving information on Matthew Bowman b. 1757 in SC, died Amite Co. MS 1827. He was in Sumter Dist SC in 1797. In the 1800 census he lived next to my g-g-g-g grandfather, James Bowman in Sumter Dist. I believe these two Bowmans were brothers. Matthew moved to Shelbyville TN in 1804 then to Amite Co MS by 1811. He was a Methodist minister. I will be glad to share information from the old Bible about Matthew and his descendants. Does anyone have information on the parents and siblings of Matthew and James Bowman? James was in Escambia Co. FL. before 1830.
