I am new here, so please forgive me if I didn't do this right!
Orange Bowen was born in New York September 22, 1819. We know his father was born in Canada Eng. (?) and his mother's last name was Peck. She was also born in New York. All we know about his wife Julie is that her last name was Ballon, and she was born in New York. We have found no other records. We do know they were more than likely married in New York due to the fact that at least two of their children were born there. They settled in Montcalm county, Michigan sometime in the early to mid 1840's. If anyone can help we would greatly appreciate it
I'm sorry, it was their son William who settled in Montcalm county. Orange and Julie settled in Spencer Township, Kent county, Michigan
