Sympathy Saturday - John Bowman

I have several John Bowmans in my lineage, but this one is my great-great-great-great grandfather's (Abraham Bowman) brother. John, Abraham, Isaac and Joseph Bowman all fought in the Revolution and all were instrumental in the settling and surveying of what is now Kentucky.

John was born December 17, 1738 in Frederick county, Virginia, son of George Bowman and Mary Hite. He died in what is now Burgin, Mercer county, Kentucky on May 4, 1784.

His Find-a-Grave memorial is here.
