We have been stuck for years trying to find the right Jacob Bowers (1825-1891) and his parents. Jacob was married to Susanna(h) Manton and they had 4 children: Cyrus M Bowers (1871-1954), James Thomas Bowers(1874-1946), Frances May Bowers(1879-1965) and a Stillborn. All were born in Summit,Ohio.
According to the 1880 Cenus Jacob's Dad is from Ohio and his parents are from PA. We Know that Susanna is from England as well as her parents. We have not found out his parents name or where he was born. Any help with this bump in the road will be a big help.
