return to parents' page:  Pleasant E Bowman and Sarah "Sally" Raser

Please note:

  At this time we do not intend to extend the lineage of this family. 
Because there are links to people on our website from parts of this line, we feel it is important
 to present this family in this simple form.  The biggest reason this line is addressed is becasue
we are still attempting to find the parents of William H Bowman,
and we believe he is somehow connected to Pleasant Bowman. 
Often, connections can be found through research outside the specific family line.
