Yes, Please. Also can you go back past William Harbit. No One seems to know anything past William (1750) and Margaret Traver(1757). Married (1776). There may be a name change from Harbert to Harbit. Can't get any information on that. Did you have any contact with my Aunt Dorothy (Harbit) (Argenta) (Manning)Phipps. Any information you can give me would be helpful. I am trying to start what my Aunt couldn't finish. Thank you.

Brenda, I wanted you to know you have made my year. I pulled up your Web-site yesterday, and felt as if I had stepped back in time. My husband's gggrandfather was David Franklin Bowen. His father was William Bowen who married Hettie Linn. They had 11 children, one sister was Elizabeth Bowen who married John Alexander Harbit.

When I saw her portrait from your Web-site, I felt as if I had met an old friend. The picture of Amanda Harbit was truly amazing. I have a couple of her letters to Mary Bowen and would love to read more.

Elizabeth's sister, Nancy Bowen, married John Alexander's brother, William W Harbit and are buried in Nicholas Co. We found the graveyard, after hiking up a half-mile hill, totally grown over and unkept. Afraid of snakes, I didn't stay long, but my husband and I are going back. What we did see were tombstones of the following...the Thomas family, the Mann family, Blackburns, Coy, the family of Monroe Sparks, the King family, Clifford, Gifford, Eliza Schultz, Almira King...many more. It's just searching the brush and trees. So, armed with gloves, boots, bug repellent, I hope to return this weekend. It is a beautiful area and I'm sure, many secrets.

Again, thank you so much for the information and the beautiful family portraits. I would love to read the letters and will send mine.

Linda Bowen

Hettie Linn Bowen was my gggrandmother. I would be interested in having copies of her letters and any other information you have on the Bowen's, if you would not mind sharing.
Thank you.

We are going to Nicholas County this summer. Would appreciate knowing where you found the Harbit graves and how we can find them. Margaret Harbit Burns. I e-mailed Brenda a few years ago on and off for six months to give her the information that I have on the Harbits. Anthing you can give me for Nicholas County would be appreciated.
