> >From the book History of Franklin and Pickaway Counties, Ohio, with
Illustrations and Biographical Sketches, published by Williams Brothers,
1880, page 302.
> William Bowman and family arrived from Shenandoah county, Virginia, in
1810, and lived for five years in the northwest part of Fairfield county.
At the expiration of that time he came to Pickaway county and purchased, in
Washington township, the farm now occupied by Ezekiel Morris, then occupied
by Conrad Pontius. He died here, October 16, 1823. He was the father of
fourteen children, six of whom are living. Joseph, who lives in Walnut,
aged seventy-six, made a trip to New Orleans, from Circleville, in 1823, on
a flat-boat. The boat was fourteen feet wide and about seventy feet long,
and was in charge of Barnard Prebble.
