BOWIE Family in Spotsylvania Co.1700's

I'm trying to find the names of my 3x great-grandfather's parents. His name was William BOWIE. He was born somewhere in VA. in 1792. Could his parents have come from Spotsylvania Co.?He was a veteran of the War of 1812 from Union Co.,OH.He married Meriah WINDHAM on 30 June 1820 in Belmont Co.,OH.She was born 25 May 1797 in Loudoun Co.,VA. Her parents were: George WINDHAM & Mary CARD. Her grandparents were:William WINDHAM & Elizabeth MORRIS. They all came from MD.

William & Meriah's children were:
Saccracessa,James William(my line),Benson,Lucy,Ophiniah,Reason,Desdermonica,Ann M. & possibly Hannah Susan.

James William BOWIE born 1822 in OH. married Nancy Ann HEARN 21 May 1842 in Washington Co.,OH.Their children were: Josephine,Eli C.,Harvey,Lovina(my line),Amos,William,Mordecci & Reason.

If anyone knows of this family please contact me directly at

I get the feeling we are connected to Jim Bowie of Alamo fame through his VA.relatives.

Many thanks!
