Bowers From South Carolina

I am trying to trace my ancestors from south Carolina. My grandmother was Elaine Bowers Poston. She was born in Kershaw County in South Carolina on July 16, 1919 to Mollie Hall Bowers. I am not sure of her father's name. I know that she had a brother named Bill or William and at least 4 sisters. Doris, Isalee, Myrtle, and I don't know the name of the fourth,but I do know that she passed at a young age. If anyone has information on this line of the Bowers, please contact me.


Hello this Carolyn Truesdale
My my great grand father and great grand mother Emery M Bowers and
Vangeline. My great great grand father Noah Bowers and great great grand grand mother was Rosa, my great great great grand father great great great grand mother names were Ellie Bowers and Otti. Now my great grand father had brothers and sisters there names:Carrie Lee Bowers, Catherine Bowers, Frannie Bowers, Gussie Bowers nick name Koot and had a daughter Ruby Lee. Now here are the name of the males, Jobe Bowers,John Adam Bowers,nick name Knox, James Bowers, Will Bowers. This is all I can come up with. By the way this is through my mother side and her mother's father. If you have or are connected please e-mail me at and if anyone else you are welcome to contact me by way of e-mail.

After checking the huge South Carolina database at the Camden Archives & Museum and the 1920 Kershaw County census, I cannot locate this Mollie (Hall) Bowers or her daughter Elaine Bowers Poston at all. Am very interested in getting spouse for Elaine's siblings as I show Bowers connections for women named Myrtle, Isalee and Doris Bowers in our huge Kershaw-Lancaster-Chesterfield-Fairfield-Richland County database at the Camden Archives! If I can help others, just let me and I will check this huge database for any Bowers with South Carolina family.
