When John B Bowden was about 8 years old he is found on the census records in the household of Matthew Goss in Habersham Co. GA which lists him as a son but that is not possible. Our oral family history says he was orphaned and lived with his uncle but we cannot document that etiher. However, he grew up to marry the daughter of Matthew Goss and Evaline McWhorter. He could not legally married his sister.

I will continue to research this. He is listed on the 1850 census in Henry County, Ga (p. 196A) living with Archd. Brown from NC possibly the uncle you mention. http://files.usgwarchives.net/ga/henry/census/1850/pg0188a.txt
