One Moses Bowen, a Quaker, is said to have emigrated from Wales to Guinnedd Township, Penn., about 1698 with his wife Rebecca Reece. He had, probably among others, a son named John, who married a Scotch-Irish girl named Lily McIlhaney and removed to Augusta County, Va.[ref.1] [ref 24]
We are quite sure that there were more children by Moses and Rebecca and many have claimed their lineage, however, only one other, a Henry Bowen/Jane Carter have been given serious consideration, due to many contacts and the all important naming pattern, that has existed through out the years. Henry and family settled in Fredricks CO., VA., about the same time that John settled in Augusta Co, Va. [ref 24]
Moses Bowen and his wife, Rebecca Reece Bowen, emigrated from Wales to the American colonies in 1698 and settled in Chester County, Pennsylvania. John Bowen, their son, married Lily McIlhaney and in 1730 moved to Virginia. They had twelve children, one of whom, Captain John Bowen, was the father of Captain William Bowen, who was the first to emigrate to Tennessee. [ref 19]
Moses Bowen was born in 1664 in Wales. He and his family emigrated from Wales about 1698, settled in Massachusetts, and later removed to Montgomery County Pennsylvania. [ref 23] [contradiction to ref 22]
