Looking for info on a Lydia Bowlin-Bolden of Hancock Co. TN
She was my g.g.grandmother. She had my g.grandfather Frederick (Fred) Bowlin 1885-1971 who married Martha Catherine Trent. Lydia was not married to Fred's father at the time of his birth so it is believed that her surname was Bowlin-Bolden. She had several more children but it is not known if they all had the same father. Some are believed to be John, Herman, Susie. If you think you may have a connection please contact me ASAP via direct e-mail.
Thanks, Shelia

Surnames: Bowlin, Fattis
My father, Milburn Ernest Bowlin passed this year, but I rmember him speaking of an Unlce Fred. Someone in that family was blind, I think. My dad's family surrounds that area.
He also had an Uncle Charles Bowlin who was my dad's father--Robert Houston Bowlin who married Anna Fattis.

If this helps you-or you can help me begin my search-please e-mail me.

Oh, and the reason I believe for so many spellings--my bunch were farm workers who could not read and write. They served in the war-but I'm certain when they told their name-the grocers, whoever, wrote down how THEY though it should be spelled. I don't know for sure.

Thanks,

Linda Norris

Does this Bowlin line have a Susie Bowlin who had a son William Jasper b. 1858, Hancock Co., TN. Supposedly he was illegitimate & she gave him the last name of Campbell. At some point she moved to Georgia & married Creek Sam?
