William S Bowman born Oct 22, 1865 in North Carolina died Jan 18,1918 in Laurel Fork, Carroll County, VA is the nephew of John Jackson (born 1815-18) and wife Nancy Bowman( born 1820) according to the 1880 census of Laurel Fork. In this census John and Nancy say they were born in Virginia. In others jJohn is born in North Carolina
So one of John Jackson’s female siblings was the Mother of William or one of Nancy Bowman’s siblings was the father of William. None of John’s daughters seem to fill the bill. John died in 1904 and Nancy died 16 Oct 1912 both in Carroll County.
In 1880 William S Bowman is W. Sanford Bowman age 13 who is in the home of John Jackson and Nancy Bowman. Is one of William’s female ancestors a Sanford? John and Nancy are in Carroll Co. starting in 1841 with the birth of their first child.
Is William illegitimate and “nephew” is polite terminology?
William married Alwilda Jackson, John's grandaughter
Who are William’s parents?
