2013: I am now of the opinion that Jacob Bow and Zerviah Brainard are not the parents of the whole group in my last post. There is an Abraham Bow Sr. dying in 1908 in Pittsfield Mass who married Elizabeth Arnold in Middletown CT October 18, 1785 and Abraham Bow Jr. who was in Pittsfield MA and then lived in York, NY by 1820.
In a book about the York, NY Rosman Lawrence Family, the author discusses the York siblings from Middletown: William Bow/Phebe Nickols, Rosannah Bowe/Roswell Stocking, Hannah Bowe/Loomis Walker, and Sarah Bowe/Silas Lawrence with no mention of Pittsfield, Mass, Abraham Bow or Charles Bow.
She relates the family legend of a relation to the Benedict Arnold family, and guesses at the parents as Samuel Bow and Mary Arnold who were the right age in Middletown to raise the York family. Problem with that is, Abraham Bowe and Elizabeth Arnold were too, and they were in Pittsfield. Samuel and Mary are not known to have lived outside of Middletown.

Charles Bow b. 1790 Pittsfield Mass then living in York in 1820 seems more of a mystery since the others in this family were born in Middletown later than he was born in Mass. And Abraham Bow Jr. Born in Vermont while the others were in CT is troubling. So if this arrangement and the associated data is correct, the family was travelling back and forth between Middletown, CT, Mass and Vermont (Probably Pittsfield VT, which is where Jacob Bowe's brother Daniel went from Middletown. or there is another unknown Bowe or two in Pittsfield Mass.
An interesting observation here is that Abigail Stocking Holloway died in Adrian, Hillsdale County, MI, which is the same county that Charles Bow's son Horace settled in.

My new proposed arrangement:
