To Patricia Johnstone,

I am replying to your query for a lost person, which I saw on the Britain-Burma Society's Lost Relatives web page (http://shwepla.net/Misspers.mv). You said:

I would like to put forward the following query about my gr. gr. grandfather. His name was John Horatio Nelson BOWMAN, born ca. 1820, married to Caroline Bunts in l836 and worked as an Artificer, at the Madras Ordnance Depot and then in the same occupation, in Moulmein. His children were : Mathilda Bowman b. 1839 in Moulmein; Matthew Charles Bowman b. Moulmein 1840; John Bowman b. Moulmein 1843.

I know about Matthew Charles' history, my great grandfather, but nothing more about the others mentioned. Would any directories or census type of material, give information , or if there may have been other children born in Moulmein to John H.N. and Caroline Bowman in the 1840's ?

I'd be very interested to find if there were Bowman roots still in Moulmein.

Maybe I can help a bit.
