Abraham B. Bowen

From Thomas Henry Ryan's History of Outagamie County, Wisconsin, [1911?], part 8:

On the 29th of April, 1859, Theodore Conkey, M. L. Martin and A. B. Bowen donated, for church purposes, lot 1, in block 41, Third ward, city of Appleton, to John Henni, bishop of Milwaukee, and the Catholics of Appleton forthwith erected thereon a frame church at a cost of $1,700.

It was also through these three men that the newly formed Outagamie County acquired a square block of land in Grand Chute on which to build a county County courthouse.
