The Bowen Legacy.  An exciting account of the Bowen family, emigrating from Wales to the New Land.  Losing it all when they remained loyal to the Crown.  Griffith Bowen emigrated from Wales to New England as an indentured servant in the early 1600’s.  He received a legacy in Connecticut where he and wife,  Margaret, raised their family.

An Indian uprising in the colony caused unrest.  The Bowens looked for land in the West.  Grandson, John Bowen, received a Land Patent from Sir William Johnson of the Colony of New York circa 20,000 acres in 1768.

As loyalists the Bowens fought for the Crown.  Son, Cornelius Bowen, served in Butler’s Rangers.  His daughter, Catharine, married Peter James Plato ( read about Peter James in “Terror at Snake Hill” ).
