Guest Book entries from 1999

These are the entries from the old Guest Book in 1999:

  • I'm originally from Rock Hill, SC. I can trace my family back to my Great-Grandfather, Elmore D. Bowers, Sr. (1875-1951) From there, there is Elmore Jr., Frank P., Sr - WWII(Grandfather), Frank P., Jr - also WWII(Father). How many other Bowers Carpenters/Woodworkers are there out there? GGF was known for his fine furniture making. This knowledge has been passed down and I am still learning from my Father, carrying on the fourth generation of woodworking. (So does my Brother, Michael!) Any Connections? - Let me know!

I just moved Bowers.com to a CMS in April 2005 and this may change some of my paths... the Old Contact Juggling tutorial is at http://www.bowers.com/contact_juggling/index.html, but with any luck may move to my personal site and be updated some time this year...

Hi All,

In the summer of 2004, I tried to make Bowers.com a more interactive site for people to post and exchange information. However, this past year has been frustrating since the software package I was using did not have good controls to prevent spam. It seemed each week I was spending too much time wiping out user accounts, spam and links to a adult, mortgage/car loan, and various drug web sites...

At least 4 generations of Bowers lived in Mansfield Connecticut, my great grand father Herbert, my grandfather Howard, my father David and I. Prior to that I've managed to track my family to Maine. The history of the Bowers clan goes back to the civil war where my great grandfather had picture of relatives in both uniforms (due to inheritance, I cannot get to them).

Uda Bowers from Kitzmiller, Md or other relatives?

Hi,

My mother was Uda Bowers from Kitzmiller, Md. area. I think her father's name was George. My mother had (at least)a sister Thelma and brother Meshack. Mom passed away in 1937 when I was 2 years old so I never knew her. My Dad passed away when I was 15, so I never had the opportunity to discover any of mothers family tree.

I would like to establish family connections and would like to hear from any relatives.
