Samuel BOWMAN, son of Robert BOWMAN, was born about 1760 in County Down, Ireland. He immigrated with his parents and sibling(s) to the USA about 1770, where they settled in the Albany, NY area. The family was Protestant (Church of England), so I assume that the family originated in England. How can I trace this family? They were farmers as far as I know, and certainly not "gentry", so they may not appear in any records. This information was taken from Samuel Bowman's Revolutionary War pension file (he was drafted as a teenager and served until he was about 20).

Thanks, Chas. Dobie.
