!NOTES:Marty Grant's 6th Great Grand Uncle.;

!BIRTH:From Christ Church Parish Register pg 285 "John son of John & Mary Bowles was born Dec 24th 175-";

!NOTES:There seem to have been two extant John BOWLES in Surry Co, NC at the same time. One was living on Neatman Creek (now Stokes Co, NC) and it seems as though most Surry records (pre 1789) are for him. This John Bowles here may not have actually lived in Surry, but at least two of the records found for "John" are certainly him;
