My great-great-grandfather, Jacob Bowman. He was born 4 April 1825, probably Stark Cty., OH; died 21 July 1909, Arlington, Hancock, OH.
He married Louisa Brothers on 3 June 1852 in Stark Cty., OH. Their children were Albert, Eli, Isadora D., Clark and William G. Bowman.
After Louisa passed away he married Sarah A Conner in Whitely Cty., IN. He spent time in Stark County, Hancock and Hardin Cty., OH and also Whitely Cty., IN
I am searching for his parents and siblings in the Stark County, OH, area. It is thought that his mother's maiden name was Welker.
