Anderson Bowers (b. 1815) of South Carolina married to Lydia (b.ca 1819)

I am interested in following the family line back from Anderson (b. 1815) and Lydia (Liddy) Bowers (b. ca. 1819). I think Anderson's father was Edward (b. 1790) and wife Rebecca (b. ca. 1793)Bowers. They are next door neighbors in the 1850 Federal Census for S.C., Kershaw District.

I would be glad to provide line forward from Anderson's son Lewis Bowers (b. 1858) Pleasant Hill, S.C. to my husband.

Seeking information on Sarah Bowers who Married David Peter Knisely

My GGGGGreat grandparents were David Peter Knisely and Sarah Bowers. Sarah Bowers was born October 23, 1792 in York Co., Pa and died July 11, 1889. David Peter Knisely was born July 08, 1782 in York Co., Pa and died September 09, 1879. I have my lineage from David Peter Knisely back. But Sarah Bowers has become a dead end for me.

The reason for finding out her (Sarah Bowers) parents etc... is because I married a Bowers - Lana S. Bowers. I'm trying to find if her line crosses mine... My Wifes father was Glenne C. Bowers born September 13, 1940 in El Centro, CA., her grand father is Glenne "C" Bowers born March 24, 1921 in Pontiac or Flint, Mich., for her great grandfather all we know is his name (Charles Bowers) possibly born in Michigan.

Ada Esther Bowers b. 1871 London Father John Bowers

Would love to hear from anyone who is researching the Bowers in London, Leicester and Loughborough England.

My G. Grandmother was Ada Esther Bowers b. 1871 London and her fathers name was John Bowers who was a Carrier by profession. I suspect her parents married in Loughborough. On the 1881 census Ada is living as a child with the Randall family in Church Lench, Worcester, England. Ada married in Leicester in 1888 and died in Leicester in 1898.
