Henry Bowen was a sergeant in the VA Continental Line and was present at Valley Forge the winter of 19 Dec.1777- spring 19 June 1778.

Henry mustered out in either Jan. or Feb. of 1780 and may have been at King's Mtn with his brothers. DAR database has info on Henry and gives as proven/military records that he was a sergeant in VA Continental Line for approximately 3 years. Source: NARA M881, Compiled Military Service Records. Henry Bowen's records can be accessed on Fold3 if you have a subscription or can order from NARA $. Not sure where rank of Colonel came from: when checking out Kings Mtn soldiers there are lots of Bowen men. I have not seen a Henry Bowen with the rank of Colonel. Linda Alcott Maples A direct to Henry through his daughter Margaret who married John McElhaney.
