"William Whitfield Bowlby, a younger brother of Dr. L.C. Bowlby, graduated at the College of Physicians and Surgeons, 1862. He entered the army as surgeon of the Third New Jersey Cavalry. He had popular manners, was very social and fluent. His promotion was rapid, and at the Grand Review of the Army of the Potomac, he rode in the staff of the famous General Custer. The subsequent history of Dr. Bowlby is not known, only that his death occurred at the Asylum at Morris Plains, in 1886."
