Janet's Genealogy

Bowman Family

* Johannes Jacob (Bauman) Bowman SR.; b 1722 there is possible he was born in a Germanic state or Switzerland or Pennsylvania. d 29 Oct 1778 in Shennandoah Co. Va.; m 11 Aug 1740 at New Holland, Lancaster Co.,Pa. to Elizabeth Reuger b bet 1710 &1720 in Germany or Switzerland; d bet 1799 & 1783 in Shennandoah Co., Va. Around 1768 when Jacob Sr purchased 200 acres located on the North Shenandoah River from Jonathan and Mary Langdon. Jacob I and Elizabeth sold this land in 1769 to Frederick Stoner. Jacob Bowman also bought Lot #84 in the town of Woodstock. When the settlement of the estate of Jacob was made on 30 October 1779 his land consisted of 60 acres on the North River of the Shenandoah and the Lot #84 in Woodstock.

Note from Helen: "The place Jacob Sr lived in Virginia was always in Shenandoah County near Woodstock. Shenandoah was formed from Frederick and made into a county called Dunmore which lasted from 1772 until 1778, and then renamed Shenandoah County. Note that the spelling Shennandoah is wrong, it is Shenandoah. Sometimes it was corrupted into Shanndo and Shennandoah but present day spelling is Shenandoah.

So the early records of Shenandoah County are found in records of Frederick County and earlier in Orange and Augusta Counties out of which were formed Frederick and Shenandoah. See the HANDY BOOK FOR GENEALOGISTS for divisions of early counties and where to find the records for the counties out of which they were formed."

Could this be our Jacob Bowman of Shenandoah Co,Va. Marriage Records of Rev. John Casper Stoever (all 1,429 marriages)1740 08 11 Bauman, Jacob to Rueger, Elzabetha (Earltown). I have order Jacob Bowman's will from Shenandoah Co. Va. This could be our Jacob and Elizabeth Rueger Bowman.
