Individual Note

Many clueless researchers attempt to "correct" the given name Mnason to Mason. This in fact, is an erroneous assumption.

The given name Mnason is of Greek origin and was a little known, or when known, easily forgotten Biblical character.

Mnason was a first-century Cyprian Christian, who is mentioned in chapter 21 of the Acts of the Apostles as offering hospitality to Luke the evangelist, Paul the apostle and their companions, when they travelled from Caesarea to Jerusalem.

There are several Mnasons in the Bowen family. Without exception, all would be displeased when their names were "corrected" to Mason.
