Descendents of Job Bowers

Join us on Facebook for our new group, the descendents of Job and Elizabeth Bowers. Job was the oldest son of William and Polly Bowers. William was the only son of Job and Charity Bowers.


I have recently been given a copy of family history about the decendants of Job. It shows Job being married to Elizabeth Ballenger, Rebecca Hendrix, Julia Alexander, Betsie Reed, and Polly Hendrix. Is Charity another wife? This Job is listed as William and Polly's son. Birthdate is 8/31/1803.

Job and Charity Bowers are the paents of William Bowers (married to Polly Cox) and grandparents of Job Bowers, the first of about 10 kids and married to Elizabeth, Rebecca, et al.

The grandfather Job was killed by the Torries a few days after Williams birth, 1778, in Wilkes Countey, Georgia.

Are you a descendent of Job and Elizabeth Bowers? They had 13 children: William Franklin (Billy), Jeptha Alexander,Susan Arminda, Nancy Melissa,James Basdel (Baz), Martha,Paris, Byron,Noah, Polly Miriam,Ann Judson, Sarah Jane, and John Merritt. I have a lot of info on this line. Glad to share.

I've started the journey of finding my ancestors. It appears that Job and Elizabeth Bowers are one of sets of grandparents who leads me to my great grandmother Bernice Berrymore (or Berryman). I have run into another set of grandparents, Job Bowers and Charity Carr. So far my novice research shows the Job Bowers who married Charity is not the Job Bowers who married Elizabeth. I'm kinda stuck. If you have any information that you are willing to share please let me know.
