BLOODWORTH, BOWEN, HARNET, LOVE posted by Marcie Brown Astley on Monday, April 7, 1997

>During the Rev. War, from late-Jan 1781-Nov 1781, the Brits had control of Wilmington, NC. During this time, the Brits "on their way to New River to get old Mr HARNET, killed 8 men . . . at a house on the road 8 miles from Wilmington . . . . 7 men and Major LOVE. . . . Col BLOODWORTH . . . came to this house on the road, then occupied by one David BOWEN and found them. . . ." There is no mention of what happened to David Bowen at that time, if anything. Curiously, tho, his wife Elizabeth was appointed Admx of his estate in early-1782. Any suggestions as to where or how I can continue to get more info about him
