"Abraham, Joseph and Isaac Bowman, three other sons, were officers in the revolutionary war. Of these, Abraham Bowman was Major of the well known 8th Regiment, organized by Gen. Peter Muhlenburg, and known as the 'German Lutheran regiment;' he was in command of this regiment when it made the last charge upon the redoubts at Yorktown. Joseph Bowman, the second mentioned, ranked next to George Rogers Clark in the noted Illinois campaign, the success of which assured to the United States that part of the northwest territory now represented by five fine states; his death occurred in the fort at Vincennes, shortly after its surrender by the British, and it is supposed that he was the only officer who lost his life in actual service during this campaign. Isaac Bowman, the third of the trio, was a Lieutenant in the same company as his brother Joseph, and was entrusted with the responsible duty of conveying the English governor Hamilton and a number of other prisoners from Fort Vincennes to Williamsburg, Virginia; he was the direct ancestor of Alpheus Michael Bowman."
