If you have any info on them , could you email me ...i would love to know the names of your bowers family...thank you for taking the time to read this Sarah Bowers

Are you related to Philip Bowers? If you are we are related.
I am related to Philip's brother John Bowers. He is my gr gr gr grandfather.

There was an Elizabeth Bowers that died May 20, 1859 in Jefferson Co per a journal (I found in a Hx. Soc.) of a man who wrote about people who died and were buried in Gaskill Township, Jefferson Co, PA

I would be interested in any information that you have on Samuel John and Elizabeth. Do you have any information on Virginia records, bible records, Historical records etc?

I am interested in knowing more about Elizabeth C White. I only knew her first name. I was told that Samuel was the progenitor but I was finding information that his name was John.

I am going to VA to do research on the Bowers in about 1 1/2 weeks. Anything you can share would be helpful.

I will be glad to share information and anything I may find on my trip. Do you have questions that need answered in VA?
