Bowermans And Billos

Maturah Bull married (1st) Thomas Bowerman, "who brought her to Canada in 1792...they settled on Lot 1, First Con., Military Tract, Township Hallowell."  Thomas died in 1810.

Excerpt from the Genealogy of the Bull family:

A family tree site at Ancestry's Rootsweb indicated that Maturah Bull's (1773 - 1846) parents were Josiah Bull and Mehetable Thomas.  Thomas Bowerman's (1761 - 1810) parents were *Ichabod Bowerman and Jane Richmond. [More about the Richmond(s) connections on another blog post]

There appeared to be a connection between "my" Richmond family and the Bowermans.  Was a member of the Billo family (related to my son-in-law and grandkids) also related to this Bowerman family in Canada? The short answer is yes.

*Ichabod Bowerman's parents were Thomas Bowerman and Jane Clifton (Ichabod Bowerman was also married to Jane Harby).  

Thomas and Jane (Harby) Bowerman's son was Ichabod Bowerman.  Ichabod's son was David Bowerman; David's son was David.  The next generation was Ichabod and the next was Samuel David Bowerman.

Samuel David Bowerman married Elizabeth Winegarden.  Their son, John Franklin Bowerman, married Rhoda Gertrude Billo, the daughter of Jacob and Catherine (Shepard) Billo.
