The name Joshua Bowdoin, Bawden, Bowden are all on the 1880 census. Most of these are located in Georgia, Tennessee, and South Carolina.
I believe they probably should be Boughtons. Does anyone have any information on these Joshua's from the Southern states.
I have come to a dead in on my Joshua Boughton who settled in Essex, Virginia...my last information. The original Joshua Boughton was here in Essex,Va c1680....I think his father was Thomas Boughton who shows on James City by 1639.
The next earliest Joshua Bowdoin was married to a Martha J.. He was born in S.C. in 1803 and it shows her father being from Virginia. If anyone has information as to the parents of this Joshua Bowdoin, or any history on these Joshuas' would be much appreciated. Thank you. Ann
