My Great-Great Grandmother was Judith Bowe. She married Thomas Grogan in Lisdowney Parish, Ossory Diocese, Kilkenny Co., sometime prior to 1820. Their eldest son John was baptised on May 31 of 1821. Thomas and Judith immigrated to Canada about 1822 and to Ohio, USA during 1830. They lived in the Straitsville area opf Perry County for the remainder of their lives. Michael Bowe and John Bowe, two of Judith's brothers, and their families also lived in Ohio during the 1850's and 1860's.
I have transcribed the Church records from Lisdowney Parish in Kilkenny Co. regarding all Bowe/Bows/Bowes families with their children that are available a total of 16 pages. I have a Patt Bowe and Judy Mahar with family, Patt Bowe and Kitty Ryan and family, Pat Bowe and Amy Lanahan and Pat Bowe and Mary Brophy, Patrick Bowe and Peggy Mority, Patt Bowe and Anty Dooly, Patt Bowe and Judith Costigan and family. There were also a few Bowe families located in Galmoy Parish., but no Patrick. There is little doubt in my mind that all the Bowe families I have listed are related to each other since they all lived in the area of Ballyconra and Coolcashin townlands or the general area.
If any of this is of interest to you I am more than willing to send you copies of all the data I have.
