Solomon Bovier (originally Bevier) was baptised 4 Dec 1748 Kingston, Ulster County, New York son of Abraham Bevier and Margaret Elting. Abraham was a son of Samuel Bevier and Magdalena Blanchan and grandson of Louis Bevier, a French Huguenot who m. Marie LeBlanc. Solomon m. Eleanor Griffin, often known as Nellie, b. 22 Nov 1745 New Paltz, Ulster County and they resided in New Paltz, New York and where their children were baptised in the Dutch Reformed Church. In 1772 he gave money towards the building of a church and in 1774 he signed the Articles of Association. He served in the Revolutionary War. On 13 Aug 1783 Solomon and Eleanor deeded land, which he signed by mark. On 6 Nov 1788, lot 171 of 1,000 acres in what is now the town of Tioga, Tioga County, New York was surveyed to Solomon Bevier. On 5 Nov 1788, lot 57 of 109 acres for George Hall was assigned to Solomon in what is now the Town of Southport, Chemung County, New York. Enumerated in Chemung, Montgomery County (that portion that is now Southport, Chemung County), New York in 1790 as Solomon Beauverie with two males over age sixteen, three males under age sixteen, and five females in the household. Solomon appears on the 1794 tax list of Newtown (formed from Chemung and included present Elmira, Southport and other towns). On 6 June 1795 Solomon Bovier was received as a member of the Baptist Church of Chemung and baptised the following day. Eleanor was baptised 21 Jan 1797 in the same church. Solomon appears on the 1 Oct 1798 assessment list. Solomon enumerated in Tioga County, New York (that portion that became Chemung) in 1800. In the church records, there was some difficulty, which was not explicity stated, between Solomon Bovier and Brother Townsend and on 16 Apr 1800 the church met in fellowship and withdrew the rite hand of fellowship from Solomon for neglecting to hear the church and suing Brother Townsend to the law contrary to the rule in the gospel. On 1 Aug 1801 Brother Rockwell made his return from Elenor Bovier “that he found her very hard against the Church for dealing with her husband and she refused to hear the call of the Church or meet with them for which we are under gospel obligation to withdraw the rite hand of fellowship from her.” Solomon was enumerated in Southport in 1810 with a wife and a female of age ten and under age sixteen in the household. Solomon d. 10 (bible) 11 (ts) Nov 1810 62y (ts and bible) and Eleanor d. 12 Aug 1840 94y 8m 21d (ts) Fitzsimmons Cemetery, Town of Southport. Her death notice in the Elmira Gazette, August 22, 1840 gives the same date and age, except for 41 days, which is obviously a misprint.

Andrew Price Bowman was born 6 Mar 1798 near Wykertown, Sussex County, New Jersey son of Gershom Bowman and Elizabeth Price. His father, Gershom Bowman was born 17 Sept 1747 at Frankford Plains, Sussex County son of John Bowman b. perhaps c. 1719, served American Revolution, d. 1783 buried Frankford Plains Cemetery. John Bowman b. c. 1719 is related to have been the son of John Bowman who was the son of John Bowman, the immigrant ancestor. Gershom Bowman married Elizabeth Stoll, a widow and daughter of Judge Francis Price and Esther Dunn of Frankford Township, Sussex County b. 17 Nov 1764. She was the mother of three sons at the time of her marriage to Gershom. Elizabeth Bowman died 5 July 1838 and Gershom Bowman died 17 Oct 1839 (bible record of Andrew and Ann Case Bowman).

Andrew Price Bowman was the fifth generation of his Bowman family within this country and was reared in his native county of New Jersey. In the spring of 1828 and perhaps longer his name appears as a constable in Inferior Court of Common Pleas records of Sussex County. Andrew married there 5 July 1828 Ann Margaret Case born 4 Feb 1805 Sussex County daughter of Stephen Case and Sarah Sausman of Sussex County. Andrew was a farmer and they resided in Frankford township, Sussex County until 1838 when they removed with five children to Rowley Hill in eastern Wells township, Bradford County, Pennsylvania, purchasing a farm of William Shuart in 1848, where they had resided since their removal from New Jersey. Andrew first appears in the 1839 tax assessment rolls:

1839 - 40 improved acres, 40 unimproved acres, 2 horses, 7 cows
1840 - 40 improved acres, 40 unimproved acres, 2 horses, 5 cows
1841 - 20 improved acres, 40 unimproved acres, 2 horses, 4 cows
1842 - 45 improved acres, 35 unimproved acres, 2 horses, 4 cows
1843 - 40 acres of which 7 are improved, 40 acres of which 2 are unimproved, 2 horses, 2 cows
1844 - 40 improved acres, 40 unimproved acres, 5 cows, 2 horses
1845 - 40 improved acres, 40 unimproved acres, 1 horse, 4 cows
1846 - 60 improved acres, 125 unimproved acres, 2 horses, 13 cows, 1 house

Their farm was on present Rowley Hill Road and anyone wishing to visit the site of their home can consult the 1858 and 1869 maps of Wells township. The house and barns are long gone, but the beauty of the area remains. Andrew's name appears on a petition, with thirteen other  names, requesting a charter be granted to the Presbyterian Church of Wells at Aspinwall (now Coryland), which was granted 11 May 1843. Andrew and Ann attended this church, but their names never appear in the list of those who became members through the years. Andrew and Ann resided on their farm, known as Pleasant Hill, the remainder of their lives, died there and are buried in the Coryland Cemetery, adjoining the Presbyterian Church, about five miles from their farm. The square, white pillared monument reads: A. P. Bowman died Sept. 8, 1877 Aged 79 Years 6 Mo's & 2 D's. Ann wife of A. P. Bowman died Jan. 20, 1871 Aged 65 Years 11 Mo's & 14 D's. These dates of death also agree with two Bowman bible records that were in the possession of a descendant, Jeanette Murray Wolfe. Photocopies in possession of compiler. Same bible record was in the possession of Ruth Furman Gleason. Dates of death for both Andrew and Ann's parents included, and the dates of birth for Andrew and Ann's children and their dates of marriage. Children of Andrew and Ann Bowman:

Hiram was among a list of men from Wells    drafted at Towanda on 16 Oct 1862 during the Civil War. Hiram and Sarah became members of the    Presbyterian Church at Aspinwall (now Coryland) in 1866.

Mr. Bowman occupies    the homestead, which his father, A. P. Bowman, purchased in 1848 of William Shuart, who occupied    it for many years previously.

Abram removed to    Wells township, Bradford County, Pennsylvania in 1850 perhaps in company with one or more of his    mother's brothers who settled in Wells township. Eliza Brink was a daughter of Garret and Mary Ann   Bowman Brink, Mary Bowman Brink a sister of Andrew Price Bowman. Abram and Margaret    resided on a farm in Wells township. Abram was on a list of men from Wells drafted at Towanda on    16 Oct 1862 during the Civil War. They removed to neighboring Columbia township in 1870 owning   a farm near Austinville.

  Eliza Gertrude Buchanan b. 18 May 1864 Wells township.
  Andrew Bowman Buchanan b. 6 Dec 1866 Wells township d. 11 Nov 1923.

  In the Bowman and Buchanan family bible it relates that Leman Buchanan was b. 14 Nov 1875. This    refers to Leman Corey. Leman Corey was ten months old when his mother Mary Jane Bowman Corey   died and he was cared for by his aunt Margaret Bowman Buchanan. Leman was not enumerated in    the household of his father, David Corey in 1880, but neither was he enumerated in the Buchanan    household. David Corey, father of Leman, dated a Will 22 Aug 1890 in which he stated, "I appoint    Abram Buchanan guardian of the person and estate of Leman Cory." Thus, the close association of    these two families is the reason for the entry "Leman Buchanan" in the family bible, which in    actuality refers to Leman Corey.

  DIED. BREWER - in Wells, Pa., March 30, 1870, of heart disease, Lucy wife of Wm. Brewer, sen.,    aged 67 years (The Northern Tier Gazette, Troy, Pennsylvania, April 7, 1870).

  William Brewer
  The subject of our writing was born Feb. 22, 1794, in the township of Fishkill, Duchess County, N.Y.    and obtained such education as the facilities of those early days afforded. He continued to live with    his parents until 1819 when, impelled by the hope of bettering his condition he emigrated to Hector,    which is now in Schuyler Co. N.Y., and engaged his services, as a teamster to Col. Herman Camp,    merchant at Trumansburg, who distinguished himself by being the first man in Tompkins County    who discontinued the sale of liquor in his store. Young Brewer's duties consisted in drawing all kinds    of farm produce to New York city, and returning with goods and merchandise for the store of the    gentleman in whose employ he continued until 1822, at which time he married Miss Lucy Barber and   moved onto the farm of Foster Updyke, where he lived for five years, during which time three    children - two sons and a daughter - were born. In 1827 he removed to Jackson, Tioga Co., Pa., and    found a humble home in the grand old forests, in a little log structure which was erected in a small    clearing, on the farm now owned and occupied by John Voorhees, upon which he resided until 1834,    when he disposed fo that property to Sylvenus Robbins and removed to Wells, Bradford Co., Pa.,    where he purchased a farm of Edward Curry, upon which he resided and raised a family of fourteen    children, eleven of whom survive their father, namely: Ephraim Brewer, Mrs. Eliza Prutsman;    William Brewer, Jr.; Lyman Brewer; Jesse Brewer; Johnson Brewer; Mrs. Huldah Jewell; Mrs.    Caroline Woods; Hendrick Brewer; Mrs. Phebe Ann Simms and Mrs. Elsa Hogaboom - all residents    of Bradford county except Jesse, of Millerton, Pa, and Mrs. Prutsman, of Rutland, Pa. All these,    together with grandchildren, great grandchildren and neighbors fo the deceased, attended the funeral    and followed the remains to Job's Corners and laid them by the side of those of his wife, which had    rested there for about eleven years. It was on Thursday, Dec. 30th, at the residence of his youngest    son, Hendrick, he serenely breathed his last. Since deceased moved into this locality he has been    engaged in agricultural pursuits, and was considered one of the best practical farmers in this town. He   never sought nor held any office, preferring to occupy the post of honor, which is said to be the    private station. His moral character was of the highest standard; truthful and upright to the last    degree, kind to his friends and neighbors, helpful to the needy; devoted to his children; retaining his    mental powers until he entered into his rest. He made a home comfortable and happy; he raised a    family; in brief, the essential qualifications as presented in his life and character are readily     summarized in three words: industry, economy and honesty; all of which he possessed in a marked    degree. What more can we, who loved him, say in his praise? When we look at the beautiful picture of   his exemplary life, we can say, "It is well." All that was best lives still and can never cease to live.    Though old, he still retained His manly sense and energy of mind (undated obituary).

Death of John Brownell, the Aged Father of Mrs. P. E. Hall
Sunday morning at 9:15 John Brownell, the aged father of Mrs. P. E. Hall, passed serenely to that final rest that waits a life well spent. Mr. Brownell was born at Saratoga, N.Y., April 12, 1802, and had almost
completed his ninety third year. He came west in 1858, making his home in DeWitt, Iowa, until twelve years ago, when he came to live with his daughter, Mrs. Hall. During his residence in Cedar Rapids Mr. Brownell endeared himself to all who know him by his cheerful friendliness, his genial, cordial manner and his interesting conversation. The latter part of his life was merely a physical decline, and that was not
perceptible as his eyes were as keen, his step as brisk and his carriage as erect as those of a man of sixty. To the last Mr. Brownell was clear and active in mind, keeping up his interest in affairs, reading books
and papers, adding constantly to a large fund of general information. He never tired of meeting people, or attending lectures and entertainments, and was always a welcome companion to young and old. Wednesday last he was attacked with pneumonia from which he might have rallied had he been younger. With very little suffering, and with his mind perfectly clear he lived until Sunday morning. Then, having
enjoyed all life's blessings and done all life's labors, he quietly fell asleep. In death the face of the good old man who had borne his many years so lightly is so peaceful that his age does not appear to be more then fifty. Five daughters, many grandchildren and four great grandchildren survive him. The daughters are Mrs. M. C. Murdough and Mrs. Solomon Maynard of Tama City, Iowa, Mrs. P. E. Hall, Cedar Rapids,
Mrs. Kirke W. Wheeler of Huron, Dakota, and Mrs. Harry O. Wheeler of Boone, Iowa. Funeral services will be held at the house tomorrow morning at 10:30 and interment will be at DeWitt, where Mrs. Brownell is buried (Cedar Rapids Gazette, February 15, 1895).
