Bio and Links
Bio Photo ABOUT ME
     I've been involved in genealogy for over 20 years — researching all lines of my family, including ancestors, collateral ancestors, and cousins. I also enjoy researching my more than 300 relatives who served in the military.
     I am a lead member of the "One-Name Study - Ulster Bowes" research group, which is using documentary and DNA evidence to trace Bowes descendants and link Scots-Irish Bowes families originating from Counties Fermanagh, Monaghan, and Cavan, Ireland. Descendants of this Bowes family are located in Ireland, the UK, Australia, Canada, and the USA.
     Virtually all of the memorials I have added and/or manage are for relatives of mine. I intend to add photos of them and their gravestones, as well as biographies, obituaries, and relationship links for as many as I can.

     If you fulfill any of my photo requests, please also consider emailing me the full-size images at "rab_42 [at]" (replace [at] with @). I'm also interested in the plot number, burial date, GPS coordinates, and a cemetery map, if available. Thank you!

     I grant permission to anyone wishing to use my posted GRAVESTONE photos on other genealogy or cemetery websites or in family trees, but YOU MUST CREDIT ME to this effect: Photo courtesy of R. Boas, member number 47304667. This gives due credit for my work and enables others to find and get in touch with me. Failure to do so is copyright infringement.
     I DO NOT grant permission to repost my posted portraits, snapshots, documents, etc. Contact me for exceptions to this.
     If you wish to use any text from my memorial pages or incorporate any of my family links into your own family tree, YOU MUST CREDIT ME to this effect: Written/Researched by R. Boas, member number 47304667. Do not use my research or portions of my family tree in your public family tree without attribution to me (if you learned it from one of my FindAGrave pages, give me credit - it's that simple). Failure to do so is plagiarism. If you can't abide by this, then refrain from using my research, or just keep your unsourced family tree private.

Bowes Family - Rock Island County Illinois
Robert Bowes Sr. of Rock Island County Illinois is my 3rd Great Grandfather. My branch of his tree migrated down into Oklahoma (where we currently live). I am interested in more research of the Bowes family line in Ireland and Scotland. I saw your post and would be interested in any information or guidance you can suggest. I am fairly new to the genealogy process so I am trying to learn all I can.

I met up with a mutual cousin of ours (Herschel Glenn Brockhouse's grandson John from Emporia) recently. He said that you visited him a few years ago. I would love to trade information and pictures if your interested.
