Today’s ancestor is Samuel Bowlby, my husband’s third great-grandfather.
Some basic facts:
Name: Samuel Bowlby
Born: 20 April 1841
Parents: John Bowlby and Mollie (Miller) Bowlby
Spouse: Rosannah (King) Bowlby
Died: 2 May 1909
Samuel was born 20 April 1841 in Somerset, Pennsylvania, USA. He was born to John Bowlby and Mollie (Miller) Bowlby. He married Rosannah King on an unknown date. Samuel and Mollie had five children: Georgina Augusta Bowlby, Frank R. Bowlby, Joseph Victor Bowlby, Jennie Elizabeth Bowlby, and Emma Bowlby.
I haven’t had the chance to locate the vital records for Samuel but verbal data from the family indicates he was born 20 April 1841. I have not located a tombstone for him yet, but verbal data indicates he was buried in Lyleton, Manitoba, Canada.
I haven’t had the opportunity to search records for Samuel and his family. I’m not well-versed in Canadian records so I also need to do some reading on what Canadian records are available for this time period.
Samuel died 2 May 1909 in Lyleton, Manitoba, Canada. His burial location is currently unknown.
