I'm from Jellico, my grandmother was Ruth Bowlin, her father was Sil Bowlin, his father was Peter Bowlin who's
father was Joe D. Dicks born January 28, 1835 in Virginia. Dicks and Peter's mother ? Bowlin were not married.
Because they were not married, when Peter was born he was given his mother's name Bowlin. So unless Bowlin
continued to have children out of wed-lock and giving them her name. I'm not sure that Alex and Peter are
1/2 brothers.
