Theodore Cheseborough Bowling - Private   
The oldest son of Capt. R. L. & Sarah Maria Cheseborough Bowling. He enlisted in the Confederate Army as a private at the age of 17. Although not a cadet, he was assigned to a company of cadets from the University of Alabama. He served in Troop F, 7th Alabama Cavalry, Colonel Rucker’s Escort, Chalmers Division, Gen. Bedford Forrest’s Cavalry. He was captured during the retreat after the Battle of Nashville near Franklin, TN on December 18, 1864. He fell from his horse with typhoid fever during this retreat & was taken in & cared for by a family named Baugh. The Union Army allowed him to remain under their care while he was convalescent.
In March, 1865 he was sent to the Federal Prison at Camp Chase, Ohio where he joined some old friends from Washington County. These friends were Gibeon J. Sullivan & Elijah H. Bailey of Wilson’s Guards, who had been captured during the Battle of Nashville. It has been told that during T. C. Bowling’s first night in prison, lice started climbing on him & he tried to knock them off. Mr. Sullivan said, “Let ‘em cover you, Theodore, let ‘em cover you.”, because he had seen other prisoners go crazy trying to keep the lice off. In June 1865, after the Civil War was over, he was released from prison along with his friends. Theodore made the long trip home mostly on foot with Sullivan & Bailey. Mr. Sullivan took special care of young T. C. Bowling in prison & on the trip home, carrying him across streams along the way. It is doubtful that Theodore, weakened from typhoid & imprisonment, would have survived the journey home without Mr. Sullivan’s help.
T. C. Bowling married Virginia Williams from St. Stephens & became a circuit riding Methodist preacher on the Escatawba & Washington county circuits. In 1844 he was elected Treasurer of Washington County, Alabama & had to give up circuit riding. While employed in this capacity, the office of County Superintendent of Education was attached to the Treasure’s office. He served both of these positions for 14 years.
He resigned as Superintendent of Education in 1899 after being defeated in the county treasurer election. During the last few years of his office, he opened a mercantile store in Leroy, Alabama & established a Post Office beside his home in 1896. He named to Post Office “Leroy”, after his father. He served as Postmaster there until his death in 1906.
In 1900, he & Mr. Daniel D. Powell of Carson, Alabama built a one room school house halfway between their residences in Leroy. They originally named it Pine Grove School, but it eventually became what is now known as Leroy High School.
