Magdalena Woods Bowyer
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: 1706
County Meath, Ireland
Death: 1810
Timber Ridge
Rockbridge County
Virginia, USA

Magdalena and John McDowell were the parents of:
Samuel/29 Oct 1735 m. Mary McClung
James/1739 m. Elizabeth Cloyd
Sarah Martha/16 Oct 1741

In 1743, Magdalena married Benjamin Borden - they were the parents of three children:

In 1753, Magdalena married John Bowyer - they had no children.

"It has been said that she was a 'very beautiful' woman. She lived to be 104 years old!"

[CORRECTION: Mary Magdalena Woods was the daughter of Samuel Woods and Elizabeth Campbell, NOT -Michael Marion Woods and Mary Campbell-.
Samuel was Michael's brother and Elizabeth was Mary's sister.
Samuel McDowell, Magdalena's and John's oldest son, born in 1735 was named for Magdalena's father, Samuel Woods.
This has been proven through verifiable records that were obviously not researched by Neander Woods, the author who later admitted he incorrectly relied on the Woods-McAfee unverified information when he wrote that Mary Magdelena was the daughter of Michael and Mary.

Please correct her memorial.

Thank you,
