I'm responding to a mmssage you posted 11/04 so you may have already rec'd a reply.
The Joshua Bowdoin you refer to was born 11/5/1803 Edgefield District (County), SC, died 11/2/1880 Gordon County, GA. The wife you refer to, Martha J. Lane was his second wife.
Joshua parents were:
James Bowdoin, SR b ca 1765 Granville County NC, died ca 1845 Monroe County GA
Wife, Priscilla Williams married 10/29/1785
They had 9 children, your Joshua was the 7th
My reference is U Bowdoin Marsh's book, "Bowdoin Family In The United States" page 59 (tell me this if you reply so I don't have to search again).
