Miscellaneous Information

1) We have a copy of the recording of William and Julia's marriage.

2) We have various documents regarding land transactions by Matthias Andis (Julia's grandfather) and his heirs. They include purchase, sale and distribution of land in Washington Co, VA. These are very important documents to our research, as they conclusively tie Matthias, his children, and his grandchildren together.

3) Julia is mentioned in letters that her son (Pleasant Henry Bowman) sent home to the family, while serving in the Civil War.  

4) Julia's deposition was taken when she was attempting to acquire pension money after the death of her son, Pleasant H, in the Civil War. 

5) Julia is mentioned in her husband William's last will and testament.  

6) On 30 April 1896, the land that originally belonged to William and Julia was partitioned out to various family members.
