Bozeman History

Mordecai's son Peter migrated to Montgomery Alabama, while his son John migrated to Mississippi. Peter's son William Henry is our common ancestor.

Philemon's Lewis Bozeman born 1819 was found in Covington County while other lines were found in Dallas County in Alabama. Their ancestors are found in the South Carolina Roster and the Colonial Soldiers of the South.

Philemon's father John Lewis Bozeman may be the brother of Mordecai.

Many documents have been gathered and posted within the webpages, to share with our cousins who wish to continue our research in Alabama.

  • John Thomas Bozeman, son of Peter Edward (386 KB)
    Born 1866 in Dublin Alabama, married Alice Stephens and had my great granny, Lorena Emma Bozeman - John was the son of Nancy Jane Anderson and Peter Edward Bozeman. His grandparents were Martha Hill and William Henry Bozeman who migrated from Darlington South Carolina about 1826. The Andersons and Bozemans lived next to each other in Hope Hull 1830 with Peter Edward being born in 1834. When William died, Martha Hill Bozeman moved to Dublin near her brother John Hill, who created the Hills Chapel School and Church........ After the Civil War Peter and Nancy bought land in Ramer/ Dublin area along the Meriweather Trail close to John Hill. John Hill donated land for their family cemetery which I visited, and he donated land for the Hills Chapel Church and another cemetery across from it where John T Bozeman is buried.
  • WWI Charles McClain (36 KB)
    his birth date is wrong, should be 1886 but it shows his wife as Lorena Bozeman. Charles was the son of Elizabeth Broadway and Josiah Marion McClain's who's families migrated from South Carolina into Georgia, then Alabama. Josiah descends from Elizabeth Moon and Charles McClain of 1750s Virginia. Elizabeth Moon had named a son Josiah and his son James had married an indian woman called Anna - Anna had a son named Josiah. I have seen three different dates of birth for grandpa Charlie but they had very little education, some could not read nor write at all, so the numbers are often mixed up. His mother Elizabeth was the daughter of Mary Stephens and Abner Broadway, and when Josiah died about 1897, she remarried to John Gardner of Dublin. Elizabeth and John and Charlie are found on the 1900 census, then again in 1910 with Lorena.

  • John in Mississippi 1830 (43 KB)
    Rev War Soldier could be the brother of Peter or the son of Mordecai - Mordecai's lineage had not been researched until this decade. I see that his son James remained in Darlington SC but John did not and Peter did not. John and Peter may have married indian women and migrated into Alabama and John moved on into Mississippi which was at that time Choctaw Nation. John and Peter both had difficulty after their migration proving that they had served in the American Revolution even though it is recorded where they got paid in 1785

He married or lived with Elizabeth having two girls around 1870 who died but had Charles Allen McClain in 1886 . Josiah died soon after. Josiah's mother was known as Anna and his father was James McClain who might have also served in the Civil War. It is believed that Josiah's mother was native american - Charlie McClain was a very dark tiny man and very spiritual and faithful.  Julia filed application to the Indian Nation.
