My gg-grandfather Henry Clay Bowling and his brother Andrew Jackson Bowling, a doctor, moved their families from KY to Lawrence County OH just before the Civl War started. We have not been able to find any reference to Andrew after the early 1860s. After the War, Henry moved his family back to Pike Co KY and Andrew's family, minus Andrew, was living in Morgan Co KY. A family story handed down through the generations was that these Bowling men had an encounter with Confederate General John Morgan Hunt during his raid into OH. I have not heard any details about the nature of their encounter, if it happened at all. Any information will be appreciated.
