My William Bowe was born around 1795 in Kilkenny, Ireland. He fathers name was Michael and his mothers
name was Ann Christopher (Carroll) Bowe . Could your
John be my Williams brother?.. I have tons of information
an William Bowe after leaving Ireland to Novia Scotia.
William married twice and fathered 19 children most came
to USA, and married and had children , they settled in
Massachusetts, and as far south as Augusta, Ga. I trying
to research my William in kilkenny but have had no luck
yet. Bowe was originally a French name , somehow they
ended up in England then to Ireland.
Most of the 19 children have English first names which I
find very interesting because it is known that William if
Irish names all his children first name english and not
Irish name. ........
