Capt John Bowne
Learn about removing the ads from this memorial...
Birth: Apr. 1, 1664
Monmouth County
New Jersey, USA
Death: Mar. 13, 1715

Capt. Bowne, a collateral ancestor* of President Abraham Lincoln, was the son and namesake of Capt. John Bowne (1630-1684) and the former Lydia Holmes, who had fled religious persecution in Massachusetts and settled in Middletown, New Jersey, in 1663. A lifelong resident of the town, the younger John Bowne married the former Frances Bowman, but the couple had no children. He died the month before his 51st birthday, and was interred here in the burial ground across from the Baptist Church, which his father had founded.

*Although the younger Capt. John Bowne and his wife were childless, the 16th US President was descended from his sister, Hannah Bowne Salter, whose daughter, Hannah Salter, married Mordecai Lincoln, Jr., in Monmouth County, New Jersey, circa 1714.
