Louis Bowman was born in East Farnham, Quebec to Charles and Sophie Bowman. At this level there is no sure connection with Abenaki lineage. If it exists, it is further back.
Neither Louis's father or Louis ever lived in Vt. As a child, Louis lived in East Farnam, Qc and after his mother remarried, in West Shephard, QC. At 20 years he volunteered for civil war duty, was wounded and after discharge moved to Satatoga County. He then married Alice Vanantwerp or neighboring Wilton, ny and the rest you all know.
