     John Jabez Dowling was born on 15 January 1782 at Jeffries Creek, Darlington, South Carolina, United States.1 He married Susan Barnes, daughter of Theophilus Barnes and unknown Sauls, on 13 February 1812 at Beaufort, South Carolina, United States.1 John Jabez Dowling died on 16 February 1866 at Brunson, South Carolina, United States, at age 84. He was buried after 16 February 1866 at Dowling Cemetery, Brunson, Hampton, South Carolina, United States.2
Tombstone - John Jabez and wife Susan Barnes DOWLING, in Dowling Cem Brunson SC

     
From A Dowling Family of the South

JAMES' THIRD SON, JOHN JABEZ -
After such fine fighting as that done by WILLIAM, JAMES, JOHN, and father ROBERT had caused the capitulation of Cornwallis at Yorktown in 1781, these Dowlings returned to their farms and the rural life that each followed. It was the following January 15th that JAMES'S third child was born there in the Jeffries Creek area of the sovereign state of South Carolina. JAMES and mother Mary Boutwell Dowling named him JOHN JABEZ.

During the second war with the British JOHN JABEZ married, February 13, 1812. Bride Susan Barnes was the daughter of Theophilus Barnes and a Sauls mother. She was twenty-one when she married JOHN JABEZ, having been born March 4, 1786, in Prince William Parish, South Carolina. As previously mentioned, mother Mary Boutwell Dowling had left Darlington District after the death of husband JAMES. Neither of the son’s ages shown on her 1810 Barnwell District census fit the age of son JOHN JABEZ. So the family tradition which tells of JOHN JABEZ'S arrival in Beaufort District as early as 1807 is probably correct. It was there that his marriage to Susan occurred. And it was there, near today's town of Brunson, South Carolina, that this couple raised the five boys and five girls shown on DFS Chart 323. Great-great-grandchildren still inhabit the area.

JOHN JABEZ was a meticulous person. He believed as much in orderliness that during one period of his life he kept servants on the lookout for any leaves that might fall in the Dowling yard; they were to pick them up instantly and take them back of the barn where they belonged! Religious services were attended by this patriarch in a silk, broadcloth suit and top hat. Still, there was a spirit of rebelliousness in him; when past sixty he went off to the Mexican War! (Earlier, he had fought in the War of 1812 as a soldier in Lowe’s Company of Colonel Youngblood’s Regiment.) JOHN JABEZ and Susan are buried in the Dowling Cemetery near Brunson, South Carolina.

Their descendants can be seen in Chart 323.1

He lived in 1807.1 He witnessed the Milt-Note of an unknown person in 1812.1 He witnessed the Milt-Note of an unknown person circa 1842.1

From A Dowling Family of the South

JAMES' THIRD SON, JOHN JABEZ -
After such fine fighting as that done by WILLIAM, JAMES, JOHN, and father ROBERT had caused the capitulation of Cornwallis at Yorktown in 1781, these Dowlings returned to their farms and the rural life that each followed. It was the following January 15th that JAMES'S third child was born there in the Jeffries Creek area of the sovereign state of South Carolina. JAMES and mother Mary Boutwell Dowling named him JOHN JABEZ.

During the second war with the British JOHN JABEZ married, February 13, 1812. Bride Susan Barnes was the daughter of Theophilus Barnes and a Sauls mother. She was twenty-one when she married JOHN JABEZ, having been born March 4, 1786, in Prince William Parish, South Carolina. As previously mentioned, mother Mary Boutwell Dowling had left Darlington District after the death of husband JAMES. Neither of the son’s ages shown on her 1810 Barnwell District census fit the age of son JOHN JABEZ. So the family tradition which tells of JOHN JABEZ'S arrival in Beaufort District as early as 1807 is probably correct. It was there that his marriage to Susan occurred. And it was there, near today's town of Brunson, South Carolina, that this couple raised the five boys and five girls shown on DFS Chart 323. Great-great-grandchildren still inhabit the area.

JOHN JABEZ was a meticulous person. He believed as much in orderliness that during one period of his life he kept servants on the lookout for any leaves that might fall in the Dowling yard; they were to pick them up instantly and take them back of the barn where they belonged! Religious services were attended by this patriarch in a silk, broadcloth suit and top hat. Still, there was a spirit of rebelliousness in him; when past sixty he went off to the Mexican War! (Earlier, he had fought in the War of 1812 as a soldier in Lowe’s Company of Colonel Youngblood’s Regiment.) JOHN JABEZ and Susan are buried in the Dowling Cemetery near Brunson, South Carolina.

Their descendants can be seen in Chart 323.1

She b. Prince William Parrish SC. Her married name was Dowling.

Subject: Fwd: Qui Grenier

Namaste, my name is William Forbes. I live in Kathmandu Nepal. I came across your Wood Family Genealogy Page while googling friends' names. I knew Bhavani/Qui from 1967 till her death. She was a very good friend.

I met Bhavani, as she was then called, at the Sri Ram Ashram, which was a psychedelic community on the Dietrich/Hitchcock estate in Millbrook, the headquarters of Timothy Leary's League for Spiritual Discovery. Bhavani was a founding member of the League, and a highly respected member of the group. She met Timothy Leary at the ashram of her guru, Srimata Gayatri Devi, in Cohasset, Mass, near Boston, where Leary was a Harvard professor. Bhavani had become a disciple of Gayatri Devi's in the 1950's. Yvonne had been spiritualy inclined since her youth and had mystical experiences. When she met her guru, the effect of this encounter overturned her life and she soon joined her guru's ashram Gayatri Devi was very impressed with with Yvonne. She gave her the name Bhavani Devi, and initiated her into the order of sannyas, which took other aspirants years to achieve.  Gayatri devi also made Bhavani her chosen successor.

Timothy Leary, who was keenly interested in the spiritual experience provided by LSD, became interested in it's correlates in the Hindu tradition and became a student of Gayatri Devi's. He also introduced some of the ashram inmates, including Gayatri Devi, Bhavani, and Swami Kalikananda (Fred Swain) to it. The guru did not take well to the substance, but Bhavani and others found a fulfilment of their aspirations for samadhi in it. This lead to some of Gayatri Devi's followers to questionong her authority and intentions. Bhavani left the ashram and joined Leary's community in Millbrook.

As I mentioned, when I met Bhavani, she was a senior member of the League for Spiritual Discovery, and the keeper of the 'sacrament'. Eventually she gravitated to the Sri Ram Ashram, and when the League was disbanded, she moved with the Ashram to Benson, Arizona, where she remained untill 1969. After that, Bhavani moved to San Francisco (Haight Street) for a couple of years. Then she lived in Palo Alto, Ojai, and finally in MT Shasta, where she passed away in 2004. i believe she was born 3/3/1918.

I knew Bhavani through all these years, and although I had moved to the Indian subcontinent, I visited the USA fairly regularly and saw Bhavani as much as I could. I wouldn't say she was my 'guru', she herself shied away from such labels, but she was a very good friend who was very fond of me, and shared with me her thoughts and insights. As an example of her self-image and attitude, I would quote what she said to Michael Hollingshead, an early psychedelic explorer and luminary, who credited himself with 'turning on the world', mostly by virtue of having introduced Timothy Leary to LSD. Michael was visiting the Ashram in Benson at the time. He asked Bhavani what her 'trip' was. 'Love', she replied. Michael then asked her if that meant that she tried to love everybody and everything, every day with all her might, to which she replied 'Yes, but I do it unselfconsciously.'

Even in her old age, she was an exquisitely graceful creature. She had great taste and always dressed beautifully and imaginatively. Her handwriting, which was always ornate and precise, never deteriorated with her advancing years. I never heard her sigh, or groan, when lifting her body from a chair or bed. She never complained about, much less described, her aches and pains, whatever they were. Occasionally she would observe that 'the body misbehaves', that's all.

Bhavani always read books on religion and meditation, and had a keen interest and understanding of the subject. She opened conversations with the phrase 'Isn't it interesting...' and she was interested in many things, from madness to divinity, and had a way of engaging people in her interests. In the last years of her life she was studying the classical texts of Mahayana Buddhism in translation. She had close association and correspondence with great Tibetan teachers such as Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche and Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche. I don't think her name 'Qui' came from the Dalai Lama. She never mentioned that. She did say that she chose the name for it's philosophical/meditational qualities, and that her mother, who was a French speaking society lady with poor parenting skills, often forgot her daughter's name, and referred to her as 'qui,qui', which kind of means 'what's her name'. You could ask prof. Robert Thurman at Columbia University about this. He and his wife Nenna were close friends of Bhavani's, and are close to the Dalai Lama. I can send you his e-mail address, if you are interested.

Qui also loved nature. When she lived in California, she would spend her summers in national parks, camping austerely from her car, She loved the wild, untouched by human hand. I still have a tent she gave me when she came to Nepal. She intended to use it hanging out with Yogis and Lamas in the mountains, but a summons from the Welfare Department in California cut short here visit.

Qui never liked being photographed, and was very clever at avoiding it. I did manage to get a few photos of her. One is from her Ananda Ashram days. It was lying in a book of her's and I sneaked it out and copied it when she was napping. The second photo is from Ojai. The third photo is from her arrival in Kathmandu.

I hope this letter fleshes out the sparse information that you have on her in your family tree web page, which by the way, is very impressive. I'm happy to answer any questions you may have, if I can. Bhavani used to tell a story about those great aunts of her's in the Civil War. She said that one of them was found dead of starvation in her bed, with cookie crumbs strewn all over the covers. The slaves had run away and the poor lady didn't know how to cook or look after herself.

I want to say one thing to her children. Bhavani only gave them up after her husband remarried and could give them a family life. After they left her, she suffered terrible pangs of separation from them. For many months, in her meditations she felt searing pains in her womb, which she attributed to letitng go of her children. These bouts of suffering left her drained and exhausted, and she had to go and meditate in a field or grove so as not to draw attention to herself and disturb the ashramites with her cries and whimpering. She always kept a photo of her son, Wynn, near her.

Love & pranams, William Forbes on 2 July 2011.
