Andrew worked in the shoe industry as did sons William, Daniel (briefly), George who died as a result of on the job injuries at Isaac Prouty & Co and Joseph (for a short while). All the Bowes men worked, at one point or another, at Isaac Prouty & Co.

Andrew's sons left no heirs so sadly, this family is remembered only by the nieces and nephews of the wife of Andrew's son Joseph.
