Yes I think this Alexander is the same. Would love to hear more about your
Bowman's. Alexander Bowman was married to Jean Collier 25 Nov 1791 in
Dunfermline. Have you got any more information on Archibald Bowman and
Margaret Williamson. I believe they married around 1757. Archibald Bowman
is my husband's 5th Grt Grandfather.

6. Margaret b/c 1871771 "

My BOWMANs all seem to have been miners who moved about the mining areas of
OPR for the marriage of WILLIAM BOWMAN to JEAN HUNTER say:-
