As far as I can tell, Chief John Bowles was not in my ancestral line. My John was my 3x great grandfather, born in Virginia, 1777-1859, Louisa County. In 1995 I visited the house he built in 1800. It is still lived in.
He had 6 children, 5 were girls; the son was my 2x gr grandfather, Hardin T., b orn in 1813. For several years they changed the name of the town of Cismont, VA to Bowlesville in hi memory.
I'd like to find John's parents' names.
Thanks for your inquiry.
