Father*Henry Bowen Sr.4
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

Nancy A. Boy1,2

b. 1807
Father-Possible*Jacob Boy Sr.3,4 b. 17 Apr 1752, d. 30 May 1833
Mother-Possible*Mary Drummond3,4 b. 1770, d. 1850
Birth*1807Nancy A. Boy was born in 1807 in Tennessee.1
Research Opinion*Her surname is suspected to have been BOY, and not "Boyd" as it was reported on the death certificate of her son, William G. Mallonee. Her father may have been Jacob Boy Sr., and her brother, Jacob Boy Jr. We base our suspicions, primarily, on the 1850 and 1860 censuses where we found the family of Thomas and Nancy Mallonee enumerated both next to, and surrounded by, various households of the Boy family. In 1850, the family of Jacob Boy Jr. was enumerated in the very next household after the household of Thomas and Nancy Mallonee. Jacob and his wife Ruth were ages 42 and 41, respectively, and Jacob’s mother, Mary Boy, was age 75. On the 1860 census, the household of Jacob and Ruth Boy, ages 52 and 51, respectively, was enumerated immediately before the household of James M. and Lucinda Boy, ages 25 and 33, respectively. The next household on that census page was that of Thomas and Nancy Mallonee, ages 45 and 53, respectively, and spelled "Malline" by the census taker. Then, the very next household on the page was that of Joshua R. and Margaret Boy, ages 44 and 36, respectively, followed two households later by Adam and Sarah Boy who were ages 78 and 85 years, respectively. Our suspected father, Jacob Boy Sr. died in 1833, and our suspected mother, we believe, is the Mary, who was age 75 and enumerated with her son, Jacob Boy Jr., in 1850.1,5,3
Marriage*She married, as his first wife, Thomas Mallonee.1
Census US 1860*15 June 1860Nancy A. and Thomas Mallonee were enumerated on the 1860 census taken on 15 June 1860 in District 4, Beaver Creek Post Office, Sullivan County, Tennessee. Thomas was 45 years of age and a farmer with real estate valued at $400 and a personal estate valued at $500, and Nancy A. was 53 years of age and a housekeeper. Five children were enumerated with the couple in 1860. Mary E. was 19 years old, had attended school within the census year, and helped her mother with the housekeeping; Alfred I. was 16 years old, had attended school within the census year, and worked as a laborer on the family farm; William G., Nancy A. E., and James M. were ages 14, 11 and 9 years, respectively.1
