I don't know much about my lineage. I have recently been trying to get as much information about my grandparents and their families before something happens to my grandfather who is 82(David Alexander). I have only gotten as far back as William Edward on his side. I don't know if you would know this Bob, but my great grandmother on my grandmothers side was also from Anderson, South Carolina, her name was Minnie Beatrice Defoor Fendley her husband was Frank J Fendley. That might help connect the two families to make sure. Maybe if you asked questions to some of the older Bowers family members to see if we are connected. Because I don't know that much about the Bowers family.
