Hi, my mother was a Bowers! Her father was William Pittman Bowers b. Aug 1896 in Hennepin Minnesota. He married Louise Margaret Zinn (my grandmother) b. Aug 1896.
His father was John J Bowers, b. Oct 1853 in New York. His father was John Bowers, b. 1826 in Whaplode, England and was married to Mary A. Taylor, also from England.
His father was John Bowers as well, b. 1801 in Whaplode England and was married to Martha.
Does anyone have information on this family? I'm also looking for the Zinn family that came from Germany.
