Seeking info on possible first marriage of Jeremiah RAMEY,b. 1755, Stafford Co., d. 1851 Scott Co. He was shown in Washington Co. on a 1782 tax list.

BOWMAN posted by Kathryn Austin on Monday, February 8, 1999

Greetings: I have the newspaper clippings (2) of my grandfathers obit. Which I found tucked away in an old family Bible. They are very fragile and yello, there are no headings or date of the paper or clipping, I have searched both sides of the clipping and can not tell. I will type it out for you, it reads: # 1 -Trammel, Va., April 14. - Tea Bowman, Dickenson County pioneer, and probably the oldest man in Southwest Virginia, died at his home at DeBusk postoffice, on Lick Creek, five miles north of here, at 9 A.M. rsday, April 8th. Born near Alum Wells, Washington County, in 1822, he was ninety-three years of age at the time of his death. His father, Uriah Bowman, came from North Carolina in the early years of the neneteeth century and settled near Alum Wells, where he readed his family; of this family only one now survives, Mrs. Tryphena Agnor, of Hilton Station. #2 - Trammel Viginia. Mrs Emm Austin, Mrs. Francis Miller, Mrs. Jane Silcox, Mrs. Ellen Silcox and Mr. Charles Bowman were called to DeBusk, on account of the serious illness, and subsequent death of their aged fater, Dr. Tea Bowman. Dr. Bowman, who was undoubtedly, Dickenson County's oldest citizen, was ninety-three years of age, and settled on the farm where he died, some forty-five years ago. Granville White, Foy McMillian, Jessee McMillaan, O. T. Austin and many others from Trammel attended the burial of Dr. Tea Bowman, on Bear Ridge, urday. (typo errors left in as written) I have FTM 5.0, and have had absolutely no luck with the Bowman line. One family member thinks Tea's wife was named Mary ?. My grandmother Emmaline Bowman was born April 21, 1881 in Washington Co., Va. d. 11-30- 1964. She married Nathan Ballard Austin 12-08-1898 at Nora, Dickenson, Co., Va. Nathan Ballard Austin was born 2-07-1880 in Russel Co., Va. His father was Elijah Austin b. about 1835 in Floyd. Co., Va. d. between 1910-1926 in Buchanan Co., Va. or Dickenson Co., Va. I have had much better luck with the Austin line. If anyone has any suggestions, or if we can share info., please let me know. Kathryn Austin e-mail:
