Birth*circa 1720Henry Bowen was born circa 1720 in Frederick County, Virginia.2
Marriage*1738He married Anna Moon, daughter of Simon Moon and Lauretha Humphrey, in 1738, probably in Frederick County, Virginia.5,3,2
(Son-in-Law) Will11 November 1748Henry was named as a co-executor in the will of his father-in-law Simon Moon dated 11 November 1748 in Frederick County, Virginia. Simon's son James Moon was named as the other executor.6
Will*8 May 1778Henry signed his will dated 8 May 1778 in Frederick County, Virginia. He named his sons Henry, John and Jacob, grandson Rees Hill, and his daughters Priscilla Hill, Mary Babb, Hannah Heaton, Margaret Bowell, Jean Fitzpatrick and Ann Carter. His wife was not mentioned, so it is believed she predeceased him. The will directed that his son Henry, and two sons-in-law, Isaac Heaton and Peter Babb, be appointed joint Executors.7
Death*before 3 August 1784He died in Frederick County before 3 August 1784, the date his will was proven.8
(Grandfather) Relocation1820After leaving the Pennsylvania Legislature, about 1820, Henry's grandson, Rees, went to Frederick County, Virginia, where, over a period of years, he attempted to collect together the estate of his grandfather, Henry Bowen, and also the estates of two of his uncles, Ensign Rees Bowen and Sergeant Henry Bowen, who had died in the Revolutionary War.9
(Deceased) EstateFor a time, his grandson's efforts were successful as he worked on the three estates of his relatives in Frederick County, Virginia. Eventually, though, he over-extended himself and got into financial straits. His wife Nancy died during this time, and the litigation on the estates was still in the courts when Rees died more than twenty years later The Tenmile Country author reported that he found the transactions in the litigation case to be excellent in discovering the relationships and heirs of Henry Bowen.9

Maltby of Redwood City, California, who we believe has presented his own research; the website contains thorough source information and appears to be an excellent resource for the Massachusetts Colony Washburn Family History. The website includes additional family lines as well. Regarding the Washburns, the only family line on the website reviewed by this researcher, much of the information presented appears to be in line with information already obtained and is believed to be accurate. For that reason, additional information obtained only from the Maltby Family Genealogy website has been included in this collection.
