Child of Ben Ellis & Jane Bowman
Tawny:
I have been reviewing your cemetery postings this evening, namely Jane Brown Bowman's post.

They had another "known" child. The daughter missing is: Eliza Jane Bowman, (1832 - 1906) who m. a Johnson. They moved to Hill Co. TX. This child appears on Ben's list of children, but not on Jane's. My husband and I visited with her descendants in Texas several years ago. Ellie Stites Swanger

RE: DAR
I went to the DAR's member website & it appears that another DAR member has joined through Daniel's son James T. Bowman - so you're in luck!

Do you have a way of contacting you w/o leaving a public message? That would be easier & I could assist you more easily. It would also be more private.

Let me know.

Yours,

Heidi

DAR
DAR membership would not be difficult for you as I am already a member & a cousin has already proven Daniel Bowman's patriot status.

All you would need to do is prove your connection to him. Each generation requests birth place & date along with death date & place. Couples also ask for marriage place & date. You can list unknown on any generation after the first three or four generations (I forget how many) as long as you can prove your link from Daniel.

I've been a member since I was 19 & would be more than happy to assist you.

Yours,

Heidi

RE: Mary Amanda Bowman Swanger
Happy Tuesday!

My name is Heidi (Swanger) Baird. I posted the correction on the death date of Mary Amanda (Bowman) Swanger in 1913 at the Davidson County Asylum.

I would be very interested in communicating with other genealogists researching the Bowman & Swanger surnames. My mother & I are both members of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) and I have a supplemental membership through Daniel Bowman, Mary Amanda's paternal grandfather.

I would be very interested in sharing information if you would be too. My Bowman/Swanger genealogy is as follows:

1. Me
2. My father, John L Swanger (1937 - 2002)
3. My paternal grandfather, Charles C Swanger (1913 - 1989)
4. My paternal great grandfather Benjamin Jacob Swanger (1860 - 1933)
5a. Benjamin's father, David Franklin Swanger, Sr. (1834 - 1915)
5b. Benjamin's mother, Mary Amanda (Bowman) Swanger (1838 - 1913)
6a. David's father, Jacob Swanger (1800 - 1855)
6b. David's mother, Elizabeth (Horn) Swanger (ca. 1805 - 1860)
6c. Mary's father, Benjamin Ellis Bowman (1804 - 1889)
6d. Mary's mother, Jane M. (Brown) Bowman (1803 - 1885)

Happy researching!

Heidi

Mary Amanda Bowman Swanger
I just now found a record of Mary's death in the Davidson County Asylum records. Mary died on 22 Sep 1913 in the asylum. I have posted a picture of this record on Ancestry.com.

Mary Amanda Bowman Swanger
Mary Amanda Bowman Swanger was my paternal gg grandmother. She is listed as dying in 1868, but this is not correct. She is listed in the 1910 census in Davidson County, TN under the name Mary Swinges. In 1910 she is in the Davidson County Asylum, as is also true in 1900.

Just an FYI...

Yours,

Heidi

RE: Bowman
You're welcome Tawny, happy to have found him for you. He was buried next to wife Minnie Elizabeth Harris Bowman (1886-1983). In case you have her included in your tree, I wanted to let you know I just created a Find a Grave memorial for her since she didn't already have one. It's memorial #179494193.

Have a wonderful day,
Debbie
