Somebody else’s family history

I was moseying around the innanet the other day and came across this:

Did it ever occur to you that in our Bowen blood there is something of rashness. I see it in myself and my brothers. We tend to be radicals. I am not going back on that tendency. It is good only it needs to be balanced and its promptings need to be held in check.
— Daniel Bowen (1831-1907) of Jacksonville, Florida, writing to his son, Carroll on 25th April 1888

It makes me think I should really research my own family history a bit more — both Bowens and non-Bowens.
