Temple Lewis Bowers

Hello to all Bowers out there! My name is William Bowers, I was born in Fairfax Missouri and I now live in Oklahoma, after spending most of my life in CA. I have been to several websites with the Bowers surname, but I have never seen the name Temple. Temple Lewis Bowers Sr. was my father, he lived in the Iowa area. My mother and him divorced when I was very young, (3yrs old I think)and we moved to CA.

Bowers in Canada

Hello everyone;
Just a quick note, I see that the vast majority of the info etc. is US, unfortunately.
Is there anyone out there with info on the Bowers in Canada? Mostly I'm interested in Bowers out of B.C., Alberta, or Sask. Of course any info is welcome.
The best info that I can come up with is my grandfather Marvin who was born in North Dakota and emigrated to Alberta. Any help is appreciated.

Bowers stuff on eBay

Has anyone ever looked to see what Bowers related merchandise may be on eBay? I did recently and it was pretty interesting...

Recently, Tim Bowers from Kalamazoo, Michigan told me about his father John J Bowers the son of Earnest Bowers who invented the Bowers Cigarette Lighter. I asked him about the lighter and he told me about the fire which destroyed the Bowers Manufacturing in Comstock Michigan but that I could still find some on eBay. Old style WWII trench lighters.

Is your great grandfather William Edward Bowers?

Serious inquiries only! A GREAT way for all my siblings and 1st AND 2nd cousins to get registered on Bowers.com, don't you think? Hope that's a reasonable expectation, Ray! Getting ALL these cousins to follow through on that would be a pretty neat accomplishment!

OK ... again now, don't worry, I'm not going to hold my breath!

Let's see what else I can ask? Oh ... before I post this, I better go back and do a signature with my location. Wouldn't want to ask anyone to do something I hadn't already done myself!

Henry Robertson 'Birdie' BOWERS

My name is Jason Bowers and I live in Arley, Nr Kidderminster, England. I have been trying to find information about my family tree. My Mothers side have been doing this since 1990 and have gathered an huge amount of information, so I have been trying to do the same for my fathers side.

One other reason for doing this is that my great grandfathers -brother is supposidly Leutenant Henry Robertson Bowers - Birdie Bowers who went with Robert Falcon Scott on the Terra Nova expidition to the pole in 1910 - 1913 and I have been trying to confirm this. I have seen many photo's of Henry and I can confirm a distinct resemblene as I have the Bowers family nose (hence the nickname 'Birdie' due to his long defined nose).
