We invite you to submit your "Pedigree" for this Surname.   Our Surname Project is primarily interested in your Paternal line, as surnames are passed down from father to son, just as the yDNA is passed down. 

If you ARE A MEMBER of this Surname Project at Family Tree DNA, send your pedigree by email to at  The pedigree will then be posted on the Surname Project's Patriarchs Page by or sent to the Project’s Administrator.

Please include the following:  (If you have more information you would like to share, you may also post a more extended version of your family pedigree on the project website’s Pedigree Forum below)
•       Name of project
•       Kit Number
•       Name of person posting pedigree
•       Email address to be posted with pedigree
•       Name, birthdate, birthplace, spouse of Earliest Known Ancestor
•       List each succeeding generation, using only those four items of information (or substitute another item of information if missing an item)

If you are NOT A MEMBER of this Surname Project at Family Tree DNA, you are welcome to post your pedigree on the Pedigree Forum below.  We hope an interested researcher will see it and contact you to share information.

I would like to be a part of the Bowie project and have joined, but can't find a forum for the Bowie family.  I have a Bowie (first name unknown) in my direct maternal line and can't find information on who she is.  I have had my mtDNA tested.  Kit # 179155  There is some documented information that Ms. Bowie was a relative of Jim Bowie (Bowie knife and Alamo fame).  This is my pedigree as far as I can take it.

Unknown Bowie, b. ?, place ?, m. Jacob Humphries (Humphress)
Mary Anne Humphries (Humphress), b. 1799, Edgefield, SC, m. John W. Squyres
Elizabeth Squyres, b. 1836 or 1838, Catahoula Parish, LA., m. John Nelson Killion
Eudora Ann Killion, b. 1861, Anderson Co., TX, m. James Thomas Stovall
Ida Viola Stovall, b. 1888, Anderson Co., TX, m. Claude Thomas Revell
Clifton Merle Revell, b. 1918, Callahan Co., TX, m. Robert Watson Cross
Sue Ann Holcomb, b. 1941, Taylor Co., TX, m. James Paul Holcomb

Some researchers have concluded that Unknown Bowie was the daughter of James
Bowie, the grandfather of Jim Bowie, but I have no idea which of James' daughters this would be.  Could someone help?
