The Bowles of Sarnia, Ontario

The James Bowles and family of Franktown, Beckwith twp. moved to Sarnia in 1861.  See James Bowles of Sarnia.
A son, James Bowles Jr. moved on to Sombra township in the 1870's.  Another son, Henry James Bowles, learned the photography trade and became Harry Bowles, Photographer in Winnipeg, Sarnia and Pembina, ND.
The following Bowles with a Johnston connection is probably connected somehow to the apparently completely unrelated John Bowles of Sombra family.
