I'm looking for information on my wife's family from Patrick County. My wife's mother was Mallie Mae Bowman (of Patrick Co.) who married Eugene Clifford Emerson (of Surry Co., NC). Mallie's mother was Mathie Ann Bowman the daughter of Rachel Pack and Andrew J. Bowman (married in Patrick County in 1887). Mathie married a Samuel Yancy (?) Bowman. We think that the parents of Rachel Pack were Isham Pack and Mary Ann 'Nancy' Bowman - but we don't know for sure. We would like to find out more about my wife's family in Patrick Co. particularly the heritage of Rachel Pack. We would really appreciate any information that you might have.

Thank you - that was some good information. I did not think to look for Isham living with his brother-in law.
