Col. James Bowie(1795-1836), named for his paternal grandfather, lived in Lousiana. Was state representative of Catahoula Parish in 1826. Some descendants claim James Bowie, fmc., born at Catahoula, moved to Avoyelles, LA ca 1860, is a mulatto descendant of Jim Bowie and forefather of this branch of Bowie family which still resides in Central Louisiana.Actually, James Bowie FMC was a different person. The James Bowie that moved to Avoyelles was the second son of James Bowie, FMC.[See "Notes on James Bowie, f.m.c." link below.]
Col. James Bowie married Ursula de Veremendi, daughter of a Mexican governer, in 1831. Two children were born to this union. His wife and two young children died in an 1832 cholera epidemic. Thus, there are no direct descendants of Col. James Bowie.
Col. James Bowie died in the defense of the Alamo in San Antonio, Texas on March 6, 1836.
