If you are related to Charles Raymond Bowers please read this

My father was Charles Raymond Bowers, and I really don't know much about him, he is from the Quad City Area. I think he graduated from Unite Township High School with my mother at the time Edna Salome Bonds. I know of three sons, Brad, Charlie and Leroy, and as far as I know I'm the only girl. Please if you are part of my family let me know. I check this weekly. Thank you.


A Bowers from Southampton England


This site is great... so interesting, didn't know there were so many 'Bowers' in the world.
My family are from Southampton, England and I am a decendant from the Romany family from Botany Bay. I am very family orientated and very proud of my heritage and roots.
My Great Grandparents were Noah [Chalky] and Lavinia Bowers [The King and Queen of the Gypsies].
I hope you all find your family roots soon.


A Bowers in Southampton

Hi I live in Southampton, England.

I have Romany roots [on my father side] and are very proud of them. My great Grandfather was Noah [Chalkie] Bowers
and my Grandmother was Lavinia [King and Queen of the Gypsies]

I am just starting a family tree, with the help of my son. Just wish I had done it while my parents were alive. It would have been much easier and much more fun.

American Union

Several of my ancestors were involved with the American Union Newspaper published in Canon, GA in the 1800s and early 1900s. I have two drawers of type (one lower case and one caps) that were used to print this newspaper. As neither of my kids want these, I am looking for a new home for them. If anyone is interested you can contact me via email at williamdbowers@gmail.com. I also have a fairly good list of Bowers from Job Bowers down through most of Ezra Bowers decendents if anyone is interested.



Family Tree

I am trying to start a family tree, the only problem is I only know my fathers name. Charles Raymond Bowers. My grandmother who has passed remarried before I was born. I never really spoke to that side of the family so I don't know my grandfathers real name. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thank you,
Jessica Bowers

Family crest

I was doing some research and found that this crest comes from the family of roll. Can anyone explain this to me or is this a seperate crest? the family of roll is a german based crest I believe. I need some info about this... My great great grandmother was a full blooded cherokee indian squaw. Any information on that????? My great great grandfather fought in the civil war and I have his enlistment papers. from that point my family moved to the san louis valley in a covered wagon. our family provided a safe harboring for frank and jesse james....I come from a long line of masons and southern stars. I believe that is common in the Bowers family. Lets just face it being a Bowers means you have been extremely blessed...........hahaha. I have more family history if your interested. My e-mail adress is thewhitelynx@comcast.net
