Capt. Isaac Hite Bowman (son of George Bowman and Mary Hite) born April 24, 1757 at Ft Bowman Estate, Frederick County, Virginia.[1][2][3] He married first 'Elizabeth Gatewood about 1782, with whom he had four children.[1] After her death eight years later, he married second Mary Chinn and had another nine additional children.[1] He died September 9, 1826 in Strasburg, Frederick County, Virginia.[4]

He settled down at Fort Bowman estate and became a prosperous farmer and landowner. In 1812 or 1813, he constructed a large brick mansion he called Mount Pleasant on the family estate where he lived with his family until his death on September 9, 1826. The house was located on the high bank above Cedar Creek, two miles (3 km) northeast of Strasburg and within half a mile of his birthplace at Ft Bowman built by his father in 1753.[1]
