I have oftened wondered where the name "Bowkers" came from. After searching, I have found:

Elizabeth Oranna* GLENN  Birth: ABT 1758 in Virginia    Death: AFT 1794
Father: Nathan GLENN b: ABT 1735 in Hanover County, Virginia
Mother: Lucy COLEMAN b: ABT 1735 
  Major Bird BOWKER b: ABT 1756 in Cumberland County, Virginia
Oranna and Bird had seven children. Several moved to Gadsen County, Florida.

Nathan Glenn and James Glenn, Hannah's father, were brothers. Oranna and Hannah were first cousins.  Oranna died about the time of Martha's birth.  Now, if I can find where the name "Oranna" came from.....

Oranna had a brother named William Coleman Glenn. His daughter, Lucy, married Oranna's son, Achilles Bowkers.  Achilles sister, Grace Martha, married a Hopkins.
