Looking for Mary Amanda McNear and husband Phillip Ernest Bowles.They were married in Oakland in 1884....Had 4 children..Amy,Phillip Jr.,George McNear,and Robert Harding.....

Phillip Sr. was a regent of the Univ. of Cal. in Berkeley,Ca. 1911-1922,,,He was a banker in Oakland,CA>

Trying to find both backgrounds as he seems to be missing from my Bowles records..His parents came from Canado to Arcata,Humboldt,Cty,Ca.

There has been a McNear Brick yard in San Rafael,CA> for years...

If you have info,it would be appreciated ...also e-mail to if that is more convenient.

Thanks for your info. My McNear Bowles connection was not on the dec.list fromthe S>F> paper...Phillip died in 1926..He and Mary Amanda McNear had 4 children..Phillip Jr.(who attended UCBerkeley in 1907),George McNear Bowles,Robert Harding Bowles(Harding was PhillipSr.s;mother's maiden name), and Amy Bowles..
I too am familiar with the McNear name from Cal. but can't find much else. They had a home on the peninsula south of San F.

You can e-mail me at if you havea link. Thanks
