Art we owe much of our success to you. It was the Wilberforce information that unlocked our first door.
Henry was the one who came to OH from TN with the Embree family. As it turns out he is the one who was kidnapped from VA and taken to TN. His mom who lived in Virginia sued the family that kidnapped him with the assistance of the Embree family. We've searched high and low for that information but both the county courthouse where the trial took place and the Embree descendants say the records are gone. They have references to the information through personal journals and travel logs. That connection was also thanks to you.
It is the other side of that family line who may have the Native connection. Frances Bowser was born in Chillicothie in 1848 and was supposed to be connected to one of the Native American lines. We just discovered the name of her parents James and N. Bowser. They were born in North Carolina. We've been trying to use Paul H.'s work to figure out how they fit into the free Bowser line but to date we can't find the link and we definitely don't have a shred of information for the Native American connection.
I would love to see the picture. Is it up on your website?
