Pierre Baudouin/Bowdoin


Portrait of William Bowdoin, 1748 - Bowdoin College Museum of Art.

Artist: Feke, Robert (American, approx. 1710-1750)

I first assumed this to be William, son of John Bowdoin and Elizabeth Folsom. John was the son of Jean/John Bowdoin who was the son of Pierre. The dates fit. But then I realized it could be William, son of James Bowdoin and Susanna/Sarah Campbell. James was the son of Pierre. These dates also fit. More research to be done to find out just who this William Bowdoin is.
