  • Notes 
    • Joshua S. Bowman, "the sixth son of Jonathan Bowman, was born July 17th, 1835. His younger days were spent in teaching school in this county, but finding the profession not to his taste, he entered the mercantile business which he still follows with marked success. At present he resides in Listowel, Perth County, Ontario, where he carries on his business. On January 29th, 1860, he married Amanda, daughter of John and Philippina (Fisher) Eby. She was born November 6th, 1839. They have a family of three children".
