131. Elizabeth Price "Betsey" BOWLES was born on 22 December 1781 in Goochland County, Virginia.
The Douglas Register:
In the will of her father, John Bowles, it is noted that Sally W. Glenn and Betsey Bowles and the heirs of Nancy Johnson, are each to receive $80 from their brother Charles K. Bowles according to an agreement relative to a tract in Virginia; interest also to be paid from the time the land was sold. Each of the three sisters, or their heirs, also receive an equal part of the remainder.
There is also a statement that John Bowles' executors are to reserve out of Thomas Bowles' part, the debt due and owning by him to John's son Charles K. Bowles. Thomas Bowles is not included as one of the children that are to receive an equal part of the remainder of the estate, but the daughter Betsey Bowles is named. I believe Betsey was the wife of Thomas Bowles. The old Bowles book found on Google suggests that Betsy married Robert Glenn but if she did so, she must have remarried prior to 1830.
And there is a marriage in The Douglas Register; Thomas Bowles to Elizabeth P. Bowles, 2 Oct 1806.
Elizabeth Price "Betsey" BOWLES and Thomas BOWLES were married on 2 October 1806 in Goochland County, Virginia.105 Thomas BOWLES, son of Knight BOWLES and Sarah CURD, was born (date unknown).
Thomas had gone to Kentucky before 1817 when his father, Knight Bowles, wrote his will. When John Bowles wrote his will, 1830, in South Carolina, he mentions Thomas Bowles and indicates he was most likely his son-in-law married to daughter Betsey. John Bowles also mentioned a deceased son, with heirs, who was also named John Bowles. Thomas and Elizabeth Bowles were witnesses to the Will of John Bowles, 1824, in Logan Co, KY.
