Please see this page at the Bowes One-Name Study website. It may be just what you need. I will alert my contact for this family and have her visit this page and see if she can help. If the two of you cannot find a connection by paper trail, then I recommend a male Bowe from your family join the DNA project to see if you are genetically related to this line.http://tinyurl.com/yllfexm
