BOWERS: Springhill, Fayette, PA ca 1800s

Greetings!

My gr-gr-gr-grandfather (David Bowers) was born in Springhill, Fayette, PA in 1817. His obituary suggests that he lived there his entire adult life, but US Census data suggests he lived briefly in Monongalia, WV. He went to church at the Forks of Cheat Baptist Church in WV as well. He died in 1871 and is buried in Oak Grove Cemetery in Springhill, along with his wife Hannah.

Alphonso Benjamine Bowers

Hello,
I'm hoping some of you Bowers can be of help. I am looking for heirs to "Alphonso B. Bowers". He invented the Hydraulic Dredging machine in the 1800's. Please see info at: http://books.google.com/books?id=8r4RAAAAYAAJ&pg=PA167&lpg=PA167&dq=%22a.+b.+bowers%22+civil+engineer#PPA166, It is an interesting story about a famous Bowers!! It is a shame that he died penniless after inventing a great machine that helped build this country.

Hi everyone, im new to this group. My name is Emily Bower, and i live in Australia. i have been working very hard to identify members of my family tree over the last few years, and have found that my Bower side come from Huddersfield, UK (going back quite a few generations).

Josiah R Bowers, Kansas, born 1862 in New Jersey

Hi there all you Bowerses! I've run up against a stumbling block in the family tree at my great Grandfather, Josiah R Bowers. Census listing shows that he was born in 1862 in New Jersey, then moved to Kansas, where lots of US are located. Any info would be a great help.

Thanks! Jim

Bower family hung

Thought this might be of interest to someone. Found this article in an old copy of the Australian Post, April, 1985:
Tragic Destiny:
In the early 1800s the Bowers family were catapulted towards a tragic destiny when first, husband and wife were hanged in England, and 14 years later their three sons, found guilty of attempted robbery, ended their lives on the end of the hangmans' noose.

That's all there was, so don't ask me who or where - I don't know.
