  1. Is it possible to scan in and attach the following item to an e-mail? I am doing research for Mary Bowman in Wisconsin and I live in St. Louis, MO.

    1. Hello,
      Due to possible copyright issues and time limitations, I am unable to reproduce the entire document. If there are a few names you would like me to look up for you, let me know. Email me at monica@pawls.lib.ms.us
      Thank you,
      Monica Wilkinson

  2. Thank you, Ms. Wilkinson. I certainly understand your constraints. I am interested in the names/line: (from oldest to youngest) Leroy Bowman d. 1845; Elias Bowman b. 1832; Curtis Columbus Bowman b.1858; and Walter Henry Bowman b. 1882. Also, Hettie Rushing Bowman b. 1888. Any info on these people will be most appreciated. Thank you.

    1. Dear Ms. Brazeal,
      Thank you. I will see what I can find out for you. Please send me your email address for further communication. Thanks! Monica - monica@pawls.lib.ms.us

    2. Dear Ms. Brazeal,
      I have checked the Bowman reference journal for the names you mentioned. It only mentions Leroy Bowman and Curtis Bowman. For Leroy, it only notes that he died February 10, 1845, and that his father came from England. For Curtis, it is a note that he married Courtny Hall on December 25, 1879. The others are not mentioned. I have been unable to locate additional information in other library resources. I'm sorry. I hope you have a good weekend, and if there's anything else I can check for you, please let me know. - Sincerely, Monica

    3. Monica,
