Ernie,

As you know, the database is a compilation of many peoples works and as such
contains many errors. The info I emailed regarding James 1756 with son
Willima came from a gedcom from Harley Bowling who as you know wrote the
book on Clay Co., KY Bowlings.

The William Bowling Fh744 (wife unknown, but some say Sallie Fugate) is son
of Benjamin Fh 110 per Todd and others.

Hope I haven't added to the confusion.

Larry
