My name is Ann Bowdoin Davis, Lumberton, NC. My grandfather was Daniel Arthur Bowdoin, Elba, Al. My grandmother Alabama Clark (Bama) Bowdoin did research before her death, and l earned that the Bowdoin’s came from France to Savannah, Ga. Some of them migrated to Coffee County, Alabama and were farmers. They had 5 girls and 2 sons. Foy Bowdoin was my father. She also learned that some of the Bowdoins migrated to N Y State, and that John Bowdoin was governor of N Y, and started Bowdoin College in Maine. My husband and I visited there several years ago and went through Bowdointon, Bowdoinville, and Bowdoin, Maine. We toured Bowdoin College and found that the Bowdoin reunion was held there the summer before I visited. I did have relatives that spelled their name Bowden as Bobby Bowden, the retired coach at FSU. We use to spell our name Bowden, but changed the spelling to Bowdoin before I was born. My aunt, Dannette Bowdoin Prescott, a retired teacher like myself lives in Ft. Walton Beach, FL. She is my only living relative other than Jim Bowdoin, Bristol, TN ( 4th cousin I think), and Catherine Bowden Young, Elba, AL. If any Bowdoin family member has any knowledge of this history that I have s hared, I would be interested in corresponding with them.
