Birth: 1804

Death: Mar. 13, 1900
Mud Fork
Tazewell County
Virginia, USA

Mrs. Christina Bowman, widow of Daniel Bowman, who now lives with her youngest daughter, Mrs. John Sluss on Mud Fork is probably the oldest citizen in Tazewell County. She was married at about 25 yrs of age to Daniel Bowman, in the year 1829. Her maiden name was Owens. She was the mother of ten children. Mr. R.D. Brown, from whom we get these facts, says that Mrs. Bowman is still in fairly good health and up to a short time ago was able to walk around where and when she pleased. She recollects distinctly the war of 1812, and on one occasion took several horses from her home to Big Sandy, to keep the Indians from getting them. She recollects also the Indian Fort which was built near Mr. Charles Crocketts on Clinch River, near Wittens Mills. A truly remarkable old woman, of a past generation. That Tazewell can boast of so many old people speaks well for the healthfulness of our climate, and the good habits of our people, of the passing generation at least.
