This is not my family. I found a note from 2001 in my files asking me to look for this information. I forgot to note for whom I was doing this for! Since Iím cleaning out all my Bowen files and discarding unnecessary items, Iím posting this here in hopes it gets to the right individual.

The Barbour Collection Connecticut Vital Records
Ashford, Windham County, Connecticut
1. Dates of marriage and births of children given in his pension file do not match those given in the Barbour Collection of Vital Records.
2. There is no Eli listed in Barbourís Collection, but he lists a son named Ebenezer that is not named in Johnís pension file. Perhaps Ebenezer is the unnamed son in Johnís pension file who died young.
3. Birth dates for Elisha and Achsah appear to be reversed, as Elisha was 51 years old at the time of his death.
January 30, 1834, Otsego, John Bowen, aged 78.
[NOTE: Son of John Bowen and Elizabeth _____; I believe he is descended from Griffith Bowen.]
