Bowlin Family History
Bowlin Family History

The Bowlin Family

This Bowlin family came from North Carolina, settling in St. Clair Co., AL sometime before 1820.  Through my research, I have found this name to be spelled several different ways; Bolin, Boling, Bolling, Bowling, Bowlen.  But, the most current spelling I have found is Bowlin, so I will refer to this name using this spelling.

The very first Bowlin I have found was Thomas Cotton Bowlin.  He was born 1793 in either Moore or Montgomery County, NC, and died about 1864 in St. Clair County, AL.  Thomas married Lydia Sheffield, who was born 1800 in Georgia.  She is the daughter of Adam and Priscilla Merritt Sheffield.
