Col John Bowyer did not have any children. When he died he left the Thornhill estate to my GGGGgrandmother, Mary Caldwell Bowyer who was married to Judge John White Brockenbrough. Both are burried in Stonewall Jackson Cemetery in Lexington,Va. She died on April 18, 1893, the Judge died on February 20, 1877. The live at Thornhill for several years, then swaped residences with her sister and husband for what is now a townhouse in Lexington. Thornhill fell into disrepair over the years, but has been brought back to its original condition. It was sold about two years ago for about $2,500,000. The current grounds of Thornhill is approximately five acres. The original property was several hundred acres. I visited Lexington just before Thornhill was sold, and had the opportunity to vist the house and take lots of pictures. Judge Brockenbrough and Mary's daughter, Louise Gardner Brockenbrough married Thomas Middleton Semmes, My Great Grandfather.
