Adding Bowen to Our Gazetteer ...

As we work on our Gazetteer, we occasionally find mention of a community that is new to us. When we find such a community, we add it to our Gazetteer with the hope of adding more information in the future.

We originally found mention of Bowen in the GNIS. For more information, see the Referenced GNIS Codes section on our Miscellaneous Page.

In addition, we also found mention of Bowen elsewhere: The earliest book where we found it mentioned was in the The Origin of Certain Place Names in the United States (Second Edition).

Footnotes ...

<1>We use the term 'Historic' broadly and it generally means that the community no longer exists. However, it can also mean that the community might still exist, but was significantly larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now. Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Bowen, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
