(James H. Marshalls, Wills and Adminisations of Northampton Co. Va. p.64). He married Ann Smith about 1655.
After William's death she married Henry Bishop May 12, 1661. She died after 1686. William & Ann's children were:
William II, Mary and David
William II birth date 1659 died about 1727 in Somerset Co. MD. He married Mary Hammond
who was the d/o Edward Hammond and Ann Smith Their children were:
William (3), Martha Bowen, Rhoda Bowen who died June 21, 1733. Administration of her father's estate was
granted to John and Luke Bowen and Rhoda's name is not included in the list of legatees who
received distribution in 1735(Vernon L. Skinner Md Probate Records), Luke Bowen, Joyce Bowen, Elizabeth
md Isaiah Dredell, dau unmaned, Priscilla Bowen b. about 1684, Ann Bowen b. abt 1685 died 1773 in
Somerset Co. MD, Littleton Bowen b. abt 1786 and George Bowen
William Bowen III no birth date but died 1754 He married Rhoda Fassitt, the d/o William Fasxsitt(Col.) and
Elizabeth Whittington. They had the following children: Whittington, William Bowen (IV) he married an
unknown lady and John Bowen born abot 1719. He married Comfort Truitt and had the following children:
Jethro, Mary(married William Carlisle), John,Jr. Jesse, Matthew
Then his son Jethro married Atlanta White and they had the following, Riley, James, Jeptha and Elijah
Then Jethro and Atlanta 's son Jeptha birth dte unkown but died July 9, 17076 in Worcester Co., Md.(the
area that they lived in was Somerset Co. Md to begin with, now it is known as Worcestor Co.) He married
Catherine Truitt d/o of Pattey Trutt and Rachel Jenkins. Patey's father was operator of ships that brought
immigrants to America and he married one of the passengers. Sarah Watson and second wife was Frances Graves. They had children: Lemuel who married Rhoda Cropper(she had married before to a Porter
prior to coming to Adams Co., Ohio), Benjamin, Jenkins H. married Sally Davis, Patty married William P.
Cropper(you notice Patty Truitt was a male and Jephra named a dau, Patty), Henrietta married William Richards,
John, Lottie married AJames Hammond, Kendall, and Nancy
And of course Kendall(Lemuel's son) married Elizabeth Parker, d/o Christopher Parker and Sarah Hanover
If you want more on the Truitts, Hanover and Parkers will send. But I don't have further on the first William
Bowen. There are other families that married into the Bowen line such as FAssitt, Hudson, Powell, Purnell,
Tingle and Berry, Patty. Some of the Truitt families came to Ohio, but think the others stayed in and around
Snow Hill Maryland/
