Legend in my family says Candis/Kansas/Candace/Candie Ann Bowman b. 1865 in Wilkes Co, N.C. Was part "Indian." My mother was told Cherokee, but I'm taking it all with a grain of salt. Candis's father, James A Bowman of Wilkes, NC married Mariah/Mary Hall also of N.C. Her parents are Owen Hall and Micah/Mickey. There was a claim by Martha P (Hall) Blevins through her father Lexington Green Hall, she says his father is Owen Hall. My Owen Hall? Same county, born 5 years apart. Blevins (her married name) claims through "Old Ned Sizemore" were denied. I do not have her full application, I do not know her result. My other thought was the search Bowman had pointed to "Black Hawk"/Johnny Bowman, but all I found were claims through his daughter Alice/Alcey (Bowman). If he had no sons, I have only the Hall line to sort out. Any help?
