It's Great To Have A Great Name

dbowers82's picture

My name is Daniel Bowers of Elkins,West Virginia in the United States. I just recently came across this site researching my family origin. Immediatily I had to sign up, I mean how fortunate are we to
have a whole website and so many links and sites just for us. I doubt I am the only one that feels the same. Lets face it, If you are a Bowers, mo st of you have had the pride in the name since birth. That is of course if you have a family branch like mine. If I
happen to have a relative or someone who is familar with my family and could help me trace back my roots. Let me know. I have been searching for years for any information as to my past. So, I am all ears, well all eyes, Ha Ha.

My Family as far as I know:
Forest Bowers, My Grandfather
Virginia Powers Bowers, My Grandmother
David Bowers, My Uncle,His wife Janie,children;Todd and Tracy
Joy Bowers Rosse, My Aunt
Janie Bowers Pingley, My Aunt
Philip Bowers, My Father
Daniel Bowers, Myself
Mitchell Bowers, My Son
