      From the "Family of Griffith Bowen, Gentleman, Welsh Puritan Immigrant, Boston, Mass., 1638-9", pages 29-30:

      "Lieutenant HENRY BOWEN, of Roxbury, Mass., son of Griffith, was born in Wales about 1634. He died in Woodstock, Conn., March 13, 1724, "in his 90th year." He married, Dec. 20, 1658, Elizabeth Johnson, daughter of Captain Isaac and Elizabeth (Porter) Johnson, and granddaughter of Captain John Johnson. Elizabeth (Johnson) Bowen was born Dec. 24, 1637, in Roxbury, Mass , where she died August 13, 1683.

      Henry was "Ensign in his father-in-law's company" (E, A. B.) at the storming of Ft. Naragansett, Dec. 19, 1675, when Capt. Johnson fell at the head of his men. (Later, Henry Bowen is mentioned in a Roxbury town meeting as lieutenant.)

      He was a promoter of the New Roxbury or Woodstock colonization in 1686, and when he retired from business he removed to Woodstock, where he died in the care of his daughters, married and settled there."
