RE: Rosannah Bowen question
Rosannah Bowen is not blood related to your 3rd great grandfather, Adam. Mary Dotson is not her mother, Daniel Bowen is not her father. She was the issue of rape. Daniel's first wife was raped during an Indian raid at their cabin. Daniel accepted the child, Rosannah and raised her as his own. He and his first wife then had two sons, before his wife committed suicide. Rosannah was around 10 years old when her father remarried to Polly Dotson. I don't mean to sound rude, but my 3rd great grandmother's information would be of no help to you. We have DNA and the record of 1903 to proof our Indian heritage. Too many researcher's have tried to make my 3rd great grandmother part of their family. My family and myself have worked extremely hard and long to just have anyone come say they need her info. Go to, someone has changed the original paper to say what they want it to say. That is why I took if off of Mary Kay's memorial. Many people twist facts to fit their visions of the truth. All those who are truly blood related and I feel will not abuse the truth, have received copies of all information on my 3rd great grandmother, directly from me. We are proud of our heritage and I'm willing to share with family. All I can share with you is that Daniel Boone Bowen(s) had at least two siblings, a brother Samuel married had a son Absalom Bowen and an older sister Elizabeth who married Andrew Kirkpatrick and had eleven known children, one named Absolom Kirkpatrick (I have dates, marriages and burials for several of these people.). I'm looking into Daniel's father being Absolom Bowen(s) and mother being, Elizabeth Boone. This is not concrete fact. Also looking into Adam Dotson as being Polly's father; again this is not proven fact, just conjecture. I'm willing to help you where I can. I will send updates as I progress along, I don't work on a time frame just when I have some free time. Thanks for being a part of findagrave and success in all your endeavors, Mary Richards
