I'm looking for any help in tracking down William Lam (or Lamme/Lamb-- he spelled his name all three ways), born about 1785-1789, assumed in Rockingham or Rockbridge counties. Married Elizabeth Ware (or Weir) about 1808. Lived in Rockingham and Rockbridge. Had sons John (born November 1813) and James (born 1809). Maybe also Matthias (Matthew), born 1811). This is NOT the William Lam who married into the Shifflets. Probably not the William Lam who married Elizabeth Givens (though a few sources say he might be her son). There are simply too many William/Elizabeth/John/James Lam families in Rockingham at this time-- I'm really stuck! Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Does anyone have any information on "Bowyer", especially a Phillip (or Philip Bowyer) with wife Elizabeth unknown? He fought in the Revolutionary War and is found in records in Dunsmore, Shenandoah VA areas. Also, any info linking him to Adam, or Michael Bowyer who came into Augusta counties, and on to Greenbrier, Monroe Counties.
