There were more Towles that fought in the Revolutionary War. I remember thumbing through a book in Williamsburg, Virginia, which isn't too far from Towles Point, that mentioned the names of several Towles that served in the Revolutionary War. I wish I could remember the name of the book, but it was more or less a history of early families in Virginia. I also seem to remember several Towles tried to take revenge on the Tories that killed Stockley (sp?). I believe perhaps it was a Cunningham they tried to kill? Anyway, I may not be much more help, but I will ask my father if he can recollect some of the old stories.
