You too? Glad to know of your struggles for this line as well. Perhaps collaboration, sharing resources will help us both get to a point where we can learn more about Job's parents. My speculation involves potential connections documented on the genforum website, specific to the Bowers surname. After you get to review that (perhaps you already have)share your feedback here. Best wishes and good luck. Look forward to seeing if we can uncover some additional clues.

I have found proof that after Job's death, Charity married Samuel Karr (approx. 1784) had two children, moved to Coweta County, Ga. around 1832, and died there at around 100 years old. Expect that she and Samuel were buried at the Karr cemetery near Moreland, Ga., but cemetery has disappeared. I have been in contact with one of their dec. in Fl., but they know no more about Charity's maiden name than we do.
