Hi Toni, I'm currently going through old messages and opened yours to Manda. I am a descendant of Alice Mary Magill and John Bowen. I can fill in all the blanks on Alice's family, however John's is a little harder. There is another person tracing back the Bowens, currently we are as far back as John's parents - Patrick and Jane Tierney - and have been able to establish that they were from County Offaly (also referred to as King's County). Please let me know if I can help fill in any areas for you. I can remember Aunty Ivy - just: we met her when we were little girls and into our teenage years. She was a lovely, quite lady and very close to my grandmother, Roy's sister.
