Bio and Links
Bio Photo Louisiana native here that has been working on his family tree. I found this website by chance and it has been very helpful in my geneology research. I am located in Western North Carolina outside of Hickory.

If you would like a transfer of a memorial, send me a request and I will transfer to you in accordance with Find A Grave's policy provided it is not a direct relative of mine. If corrections or additions need to be made to any memorial of mine I will be glad to do so.

I am a photo volunteer and try to take picture's for others as I have time. I am more than happy to help. However, if I take a photo and you feel the need to delete it please let me know why as a courtesy. My time is often limited and if my photo is going to be deleted as soon as I post it then why should I bother being a volunteer??

Please DO NOT copy photo's of mine that I have downloaded to memorial pages I have created and post them to other WEBSITES without my permission! If you want to use them on your personal family tree that is fine but, don't submit my photo's to other websites. I am the one that should make that decision. Recently, family photo's I shared on Ancestry.Com have appeared on other websites without my permission. As a result,the people in the photo's were not identified correctly. I like to get correct information in my genealogical research as I am sure that most people also want. That said, please show me some courtesy on the photo's that I have generously shared.

Thank you for your genealogical work that you've worked up and posted on I would like to use your photos in my tree, which as I understand from your profile, is fine by you.
We're probably somehow related--Francis Edwin Bowman Sr is my 2nd great grand uncle.--Harold W Stanley (Enterprise 1950)

Elmore family

May I transfer my Elmore memorials into your care? I noticed you have a Great Aunt in your care and thought I'd like you to have these.

Let me know and I will send them your way.

Take care,

I have transferred memorials into your care because you have created and maintain their relatives. I hope you don't mind. I like to care for direct relatives.

Best regards,

Ernest Thank You for the kind letter . Your kindness is really appreciated .
I have abt 91 Bowman's in My Find A Grave listings.
According to this family they arrived here from Germany abt 1730 in Savanah , Ga. The spread out moving to Alabama and the Carolina's. We actually had an Ernest Bowman here.
I am taking care of Your request and I am certain , it will be to Your satisfaction..
Oh!! And if You remember Jeanie Pruett , who had a hit song called Satin Pillows , She is a Bowman and is from Pell City. Our Bowmans were all very good singers. Jeanie had at least one of her brothers that was in Nashville in the band of several really good Country Singers.
