Classification: Query
I think that this must be your William, but I have tentatively put him as the son of Samuel Bowman of Grayson County, VA.
If it is your William & you want, I can also port later census abstracts.
2 Feb 1826 Grayson Bond1826-4: William Bowman and Elizabeth Thompson, daughter of Henry Thompson of Montgomery County; George Bowman and William Lawson Sureties.
Return 3-33: unsigned, certifies the marriage of William Bowman & Elizabeth Thompson of Feb 2, 1826.
[George Bowman was probably acting as a brother as he was about the same age. I think both were sons of Samuel Bowman.]

1830 Patrick County VA census (1 June 1830 through 1 June 1831)
William Bowman 2 males < 5, 1male 30-40, 1 female 20-30
