The following research is from Carolyn Whitaker:

I know that Mary has been listed over the years as a Bolick/Bolch and daughter of Johann Adam Bolick Sr, but I have proven she is not a Bolick. Johann Adam left his will and specifically left land to his daughter Elizabeth. Her name was not Mary Elizabeth, it was just Elizabeth. I found deeds that prove she married Jacob Garling/Garland and she and Jacob are selling the same land she received in Johann Adam Bolick's will. Elizabeth also had a bastard child in the time frame the Bowman's were having children so Mary couldn't possibly be a Bolick. A. L. CROUSE did his 1906 book on the Bowman's he ASSUMED she was a Bolick and how he missed these deeds I don't know. Also the will of Daniel Bowman names his wife "MARY" not Elizabeth.

According to the information I have David Bowman (son of Daniel and Mary Bowman) and Elizabeth Simmons had a daughter Catherine MOSER BOWMAN who married Daniel Little, which would give a good indication Mary Bowman, wife of Johann Daniel Bowman, is a Moser/Mouser.
