The Cornelius Bowman, Sr. family began migration from Kings Branch, Muddy Creek, Madison Co., Ky. to the South Fork of the Kentucky River, as close neighbors to the James Moore, Sr. family, in 1795 just after the Moores arrived on the South Fork. Cornelius Bowman, Sr.'s son & wife, John & Sarah Smith Bowman, were the first to leave Tennessee for Muddy Creek occurring on the Madison Co., Ky. tax list in 1794 & the first to arrive on the South Fork in 1795. All the Cornelius, Sr. family migrated from Tennessee except William. Cornelius, Sr. & Cornelius, Jr. were the last of the Bowmans to leave Muddy Creek in 1812 for the South Fork, where they remained to death.
