Notes for Cornelius Bowman, Sr.:
Cornelius Bowman and his family meandered to Muddy Creek in Estill County around 1790. It was his boys who followed James Moore's daughters to South Fork County. After Neal's wife, Susannah died and he was getting on in years, he was persuaded to come to Owsley County with his sons. The story goes that he grieved so over the loss of his wife that he almost lost his mind. The sons went back to Muddy Creek, dug up the remains of their mother and moved her back to Owsley County (it was still Clay County then.) Her body was taken by pack-horse to old Neal's cabin where he requested her remains be laid on his bed. That night he crawled into bed beside her coffin to sleep. The next day she was buried on a nearby hill. Old Neal soon joined his beloved Susannah when he was laid to rest by her side.

The elderly Bowmans, their son, Cornelius, Jr. and his wife Betty Moore Bowman, are all buried near the residence of Willard Campbell. The mouth of the branch where widow Betty Bowman lived many years after the death of her husband still bears her name.
