William J. Bowers (aprox 1830) and wife Julia

I am searching for william J. Bowers of New York. He was born around 1830 as I have one of his sons, William Dover Dwight Bowers, born 1858.
William J. Bowers was married to Julia. They had a son (more?) named William Dover Dwight (1858) who married Nettie Patch (1861). They had 1) UNKOWN, 2) Charles Cleveland***(1885), 3) Bert Otis (1890), 4) Ray (1893), 5) Edith (1897), and 6) Mabel (1900)

Charles Cleveland Bowers (1885-1905) married Elsie Jane Howard (1887-1905) in Tecumseh, Johnson, Nebraska on 19 Apr 1905. They had five children. 1) Ethel E BOWERS (1906-1952), 2) Velma F BOWERS (1908-1987), 3) Alfred BOWERS (1910-1974), 4) Ollie Bowers (1913-), and 5) Bowers, Edward E (1917-1973)

Bowers, Edward E (1917-1973) married Joy Irene Brinkhaus (1920-1949) in Council Bluffs, Pottawattamie, Iowa on 4 December 1937. They were my Grandparents. My father was their oldest child, Charles Alan Bowers.
