Iowa's Bowers Family

Hoping to find more info on relatives from Iowa. Robert Bowers, B.D. November 20?, 1920's. Robert was in the Army as a young man, and had a sister, (perhaps a sister-in-law) "Tru" Bowers. His family farmed in Iowa, but after his Army days, he moved to Savanna, IL, and married Eunice Ritchie. It is my understanding that there was a "falling-out" with family members because he joined the army instead of continuing with the family farm.

The family consisted of approx 8 children mixed brothers and sisters. One of the brothers was sent to prison for a "headline" crime in the late 70's early 80's ~ my Dad "Jimmy" was the one called and i remember driving with him late that night to Keansburg to give moral support to "Uncle Donald's" family that night.

Tracing your English Bowers

I've found a great site if you suspect your ancestors came from Suffolk
put "the families of Great Waldingfield, Suffolk" in your search engine, click on surnames and then click on bowers (of course) you may find some names that help, it also has links to spouses, children and parent. So if you know Emma Bird was your relative you can look her up and find she was married to Joshua Bowers. Try it,
