My aunt Mary O'Sullivan (born Jullunder, India, 1890) married Clifford Bowers (b. 1883) and eventually in 1925/26 emigrated with him from England to Fremantle in Western Australia, setting up a farm about 250 miles north of there, and eventually dying in Perth in 1963. They had two sons, Pat Bowers (b. 1917) who inherited their farm and later retired to Perth himself, and Tony Bowers (b. 1919) who founded a timber business in Sydney. We European relations have lost touch.



I have recently found out that my fathers name was Larry Clay Bowers from Detriot, MI. I dont think at this point it is a coincidence, and I believe we may be related. Let me know, I knwo you havent posted since 1999, but hoping you check this in the next couple of years...

Oak View Cemetery and Bowers Memorial Park near Canon, GA

I just returned from a trip to Georgia where I visited both Canon and Bowersville. I did not have a lot of time to spend but I did manage to make it to Oak View Cemetery which contains Bowers Memorial Park. There are many, many Bowers people within this cemetery. I managed photographs of those who I know my own kin but also snapped photos of other sites that I am just now getting off of my camera. I will try to post them here later. I absolutely recommend this cemetery for anyone with Bowers roots in Canon, GA and the surrounding counties of Elbert and Hart.

My unknow family tree

I have no knowledge of my extended family tree, and was wondering if any Bowers out there could help? Growing up my father (George C. Bowers) told my brother and I our heritage is "Heinz 57" so we dont even know our ethnic backgrounds. His father is Russel C. Bowers who passed only 6 months after my father passed, so getting information is slim to none. Russel and Patricia Bowers had 6 children Russel Jr, Christine, George, Chery, Karen, and Kimberly. Any information may be helpful, and thank you in advance!

Canadian Bowers connection ?

Not sure if this is the proper venue to request information about family line.
My father was born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada in 1906.
No record seems available of that birth.
Later his family moved to Medicine Hat, Alberta, Canada.
I do not know for certain the name my grand mother prior to marriage.
I believe it to have been Saul.
John Bowers and (possibly Violet ?) Saul had two children Jack Garnet Bowers, and Violet Bowers.
Family separated around 1914...Mother and daughter migrated to Port Credit, Ontario, Canada.


Bowers Family from Texas

I am looking for Bowers' from the Panhandle area of Texas, specifically Wheeler, Texas. I heard stories all of my life about the ranches in that area that my grandfather talked about working on all of his young life in the early part of the 1900's before joining the CCC. His name was Bedford Forrest Bowers. I don't know his parents names.
Ring any bells for anyone? I am mostly looking to locate the ranches.

Searching for my roots

Hi Bowers community, I really hope someone would be able to assist me. I am trying to trace my roots so to speak and have hit a bit of a wall in that the patriachs are no longer with us. I am trying to trace the origins of Matthew Attwood Bowers who arrived in Cape Town on a British Naval vessel (from delivering supplies to St. Helena Island). He had a son - Daniel Attwood Bowers - my grandfather, who first married Evelyn Ross and later Gwendoline Pond (my gran). Somewhere along the line a Henry Bowers features, however I am not too sure where he fits in.
