The resources used to define these families include:

(1) William Hammond Bowden, "Michael Bowden and Some of his Descendants," on FHL microfilm 1,321,045 Item 12.

(2) The website "Stanley History Project" has a page devoted to the Michael Bowden family at http://stanleyhistory.net/descnarratives/SamuelBowden.htm.

The latter source indicates that Michael Bowden (1651-1740) was probably the son of Samuel Bowden of Gloucester, Massachusetts.
