Hi, I'm trying to help a friend with her family history and haven't much to go on, so if there's anyone that can help, we would be very grateful:
Mathew Bower (farmer) married to Elizabeth Hall - son Peter Charles Bower b.circa. 1867, Castlepollard, Westmeath, Ire. Peter C. Bower emigrated to New Zealand and married Bridget Lane, 4 April, 1899 in Timaru, Sth Canterbury, NZ. Thomas was another family name. We are interested in any Bower family in Castlepollard or elsewhere, that might be related to this family. Thankyou. Hannah. N.Z.
