Re: Bowes/Maher - Kansas Bowe
- This was further down the page:
"The connection between the BOWES and OTTENI families is through Lawrence A. Bowes when he married Mary Louisa 'Lida' Flemm, daughter of Theresia Otteni and granddaughter of Benedict Otteni. Lawrence and Lida, along with other Bowes family members, migrated [from Ohio] to Kansas City, MO before 1880."
If you can link to this family your line is most certainly from Johnstown, Kilkenny, the same location where one of the participants in our DNA project belonging to the Ely Carroll subgroup of Bowe/s from Ireland has had family for the last 400 years at least. That in itself wouldn't prove you are related to the Irish Ely Carroll subgroup through your patrilineal Bowes line, but points in that direction.

- Thanks for the info. My John Maher Bowes was born about 1838, probably in Joliet, Il. I haven't been able to locate any Bowes in that area. His mother's name has been known as Anna Ryan, a widow. So I am still searching.Ann
