I am related to this line of Bowman's through my g. grandmother, Emma Mildred Bowman. She was the daughter of John Wesley Bowman, Sr. I have a couple of variations for his wife's name, Mary Nellie Bean (and Nellie Burns). I am told they are buried in the Bowman-Bean Cemetary in Nelson County. I am not sure where this is located, but I do know there is a Bowman family cemetary off of Bennet's Lane (off of Boston Road). It is back in the woods and I don't know how accessable it is now, I haven't been there for 20 years. John Wesley Bowman, Jr., went by "Boss" Bowman. John Wesley, Sr.'s parents were Dennis Bowman and Zerilda Bean Hasel(Hazel).
