The author makes every effort to include accurate information about the real people in his stories. Although some of the details are invented, nothing is added that is not consistent with known history. The primary characters in The Westward Sagas are the family and descendants of Adam Mitchell, born in Lancaster, PA in 1745; died in Jonesborough, TN in 1802.
On Saturday, March 18, 2006, David Bowles participated in the 225th Observance of the Battle of Guilford Courthouse at the Guilford Courthouse National Military Park, the site of the battle and Adam Mitchell’s farm, as described in Spring House.
He represented the San Antonio Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution at the 11:00 AM ceremony, laying a wreath at the Nathanael Greene Monument.
That afternoon, David conducted a seminar on the Mitchell Family at the Buffalo Creek Presbyterian Church, founded 250 years ago by Adam Mitchell’s family.
Forty-five direct descendants of Adam Mitchell gathered in Greensboro to observe the occasion. The family attended a special service at the Buffalo Creek Presbyterian Church on Sunday morning. Three generations (the 7th, 8th, and 9th generations from Adam Mitchell) enjoyed the reunion.
