I don't know if this is the same individual or not, but there is a Benjamin H. Bowls(sic) listed in BENTON COUNTY, MISSOURI Pribate Court Case #40 (1839) This is a record of the deeds (and misdeeds, seemingly) of the administrators of the estate of my gg-grandfather, Stephen L. Bowls/Boles who died in Benton County in 1839. His son, Stephen Lacey Boles (1838-1905) named 2 of his children (John)Franklin and my grandmother is shown as Rutha Eve Boles in early censuses. They also were in Taney County around 1890 and my grandmother, Rutha, married William Zachariah Coats there in 1896 (if memory serves me correctly).
Hope this helps and would be happy to exchange what info. I have on the Bowls/Boles family.
