I don't think I'm related, but I am also descended from a Canadian immigrant who came to the US at the same time as Lewis Bowman. We have a family tradition of Indian ancestry through this line, but I've had trouble tracing the family back across the border. And so, having stumbled on the Bowman saga-- was wondering if anyone has had any luck tracing Louis (Lewis) Bowman back to his birthplace? The federal censuses (1870 onward) all list him (and progeny) as White, so I'm wondering where the Abenaki ancestry comes in. We've got an equally confusing situation in my family. . . .
