Hey, My great-grandfather's name was Levi Bowlin, know it's not the same as your Levi. He is buried in St Clair county Alabama. I was just wondering if our Bowlins are related. My family comes down from a Thomas Cotton Bowlin b1793 in Southern Pines NC. and died 1864 in St. Clair County Alabama. He married Lydia Sheffield, daughter of Adam Sheffield and Priscilla Merritt. She was born 1800 in Georgia, and died 1897 in St. Clair County Alabama. I have run into a dead end with Thomas and can not find any thing on his parent's names.
