I found your interest in this surname on the Genconnect website. I have an interest also as this surname has cropped up in my research on a maternal line. My main surname interests in Kilkenny are O'NEILL,POWER and REID.Do you have a Margaret BOWE with connection to a REID (sp?) family of Kilkenny? I have found a gravemarker at Jerpoint Abbey, Jerpointchurch, Thomastown, Kilkenny, Ireland with this information on it:
Erected by Mollie REID of Manchester
In Loving Memory
of her mother Margaret REID of Mullinavat (a community just south of Jerpoint)
her father James REID
her sisters Sarah Anne REID, Margaret LEA nee REID, Catherine LAVION nee REID
and her aunt
Margaret BOWE
Rest in Peace

The grave marker is not dated, but very weathered. This is, I believe, my ancestor Mollie Reid O'Neill, who married Thomas O'Neill of the same area. His family is documented; hers is not. That is why I am pursuing the Margaret Bowe who must have been a Reid, sister to the above James, before her marriage to a Bowe. The O'Neill family immigrated to Charleston, SC following their brother, Patrick O'Neill, about 1840, when he came to Charleston to serve at St. Patrick's Catholic Church (1838 -1865). As you may know, Charleston is no far from Augusta, GA. What do you think? Any possibilities?
