(760) was born on 29 Jun 1792 in Sussex Co., NJ. He died on 6 Apr

He was probably the John S. who served as a private in September of 1814 from
New Hampton, New Jersey. Some researchers have his middle initial as "L"
but scrutiny of his grandfather's estate papers disclose that it was "S".
Warren Co. deed of 16 NOV 1827 shows John S. BOWLBY and wife, Elizabeth, were
then of Bethlehem Twp., Hunterdon Co. Colonel Herbert BOWLBY notes that he married
Elizabeth CASTNER, but this was John R. BOWLBY born in 1824. John and Elizabeth
apparently had at least 6 children: William, Sarah J., Hetty, Hamilton, and Robert
M. Notes from the BOWLBY reunion of 1906 give the names of three: Stacy, David
P., and Hamilton. Seven children have been identified in this family, but the
1840 census report of Warren Co. suggests there may have been others. In 1840,
Stacy, Charles, Bartley, Alexander, and Alfred were living in Mansfield and of
approximately the same age. Stacy used Charles, Bartley, and Alfred in naming
his children, possibly after his brothers.
He was married to Elizabeth MILLER on 25 Oct 1812.
