Bowers Here

Wow, there's a lot of us. I was born Bowers. Father was born Billy Edger Bowers in either North or South Carolina, not sure,later a school teacher changed his name to William Edward Bowers because she thought it was more proper. He died June 1996. Grandmother was Thelma Bowers died 1989, I do not know what his fathers name was. He had a slew of brothers and sisters, Troy Bowers, Carl Bowers (both CA), Albert Bowers (TN), Francis Bowers, and more but I don't know the names either.

James Stratton looking for Carole Bowers

I came across this message from James on a Bowers site. I believe the Carole you are looking for is my mother. She recognizes your name and said she has met you before when whe visited Scotland with her mother, Chris, some 20 years or so ago. I have tried to contact you before, thought I would try this way instead of the Stratton email address. Carole would like very much to get in contact with you also. My email address is . Hope to hear from you soon.

Looking For Long Lost Brother, Matt

Hopefully you all could help me, if he's not looking for himself. I recently found out that I have an older brother that my dad fathered to another woman while he was in the service. From my current understanding, she moved to buffalo new york with her son and remarried.

All I know is that his name is Matt, and his mother's name is Diane, and that he is around 24 years of age. Matt if you read this, my fathers name is James (or Jamie) Bowers, born and raised in chicago.

Adding a new Bowers (engaged)

This is Ray Bowers, the site owner and admin... I just had some good news, so I thought I would share it. Yep, I am finally engaged. April 26th, I asked Nona Green to marry me and she said Yes.

I decided to surprise Nona by doing it at the dance where we met. For those who don't know us, we met through and compete on a Swing dance team called Capital Swing. To do it, Dean (the DJ) played "Ain't no sunshine" and I asked Nona to dance. I took her to the same spot where a few years ago at another Wednesday night Dean and Dawn dance we had met and first did a WCSwing dance.

Calling all artists -- want to help give this site a face lift?

We have quite a few artists here on, so would any of you like to help out the site?

I know that I am not a graphic artist. My choice of colors and the simple photo of an old crest I put up here are not exactly fancy and eye catching. So, if there is anyone who would love to propose a new color scheme, font selection, and even create a replacement image for the top banner (it does not have to be the same size), then I am welcome to ideas or submissions!


Bowers in England

Hi, my name is Chris Bowers. I live near Northampton UK. I am married with 2 kids. My parents also live in Northampton but my father's family are from Newbury. My Brother also lives near Northampton he is married with 2 young kids.



I have no idea if this will ever be responded to. I am looking for my uncle, his name is Craig Bowers, and lived in Hickory Corrners Michigan on Gull lake. He had a brother nammed Jon (my father), and a sister Sally. His dad would be Frederick Bowers, son of Ernest. I think Craig and my dad had a falling out years ago, but i am not sure, he never talks about him. I i know that he lived in California in the 80s or 90s, but now i am not sure.


Looking for information on Evertte Bowers

He lived in Saint Paul MN during the sixties and work at a department store down town. He had a son born in Saint Paul named Richard Eugene Bowers born to him and Murial. They devorced when Richard was very little and moved to Southern Califorina. Richard went to medical school and moved to San Diego around 1948. I have not been able to find any information on Everette. not realy sure of the spelling. My father (Richard E. Bowers Sr. MD) took me to see him when I was 13 in Saint Paul.




I've been researching my mother's family tree and linked up with another Bowers line. On our line there is an Arthur Bowers born about 1775 in South Carolina. Anyone have any knowledge of Arthur or any Bowers there?
He then came to England.
