South Carolina Bowers~ JT Bowers ~ Wife Dorothy Family Tree

Hi I just found this site. Have been doing Genealogy since 1994 and have completed several pages for my side of the family back to the 1600's. My husband "Bowers" family I can trace back to his Grandfather JT Bowers. But can go no further. My husbands parents were divorced in 1965 and his Mother moved the kids out to California. I am now trying to reconnect to get the information on the Bowers Family. We visited William Bowers and his wife Faye in 1981. They lived in Camden. We visted his Aunt Mary's house and his Uncle Clarence was there too. In search of the family tree.



I am Michele (Bowers) Marcum. Looking for my biological grandfather, Thomas Jefferson Bowers of Nelsonville, OH. I believe he was a doctor with a practice in Columbus, Ohio. My father and grandmother were estranged from him. My grandmother, Zola Palmer Bowers, did not offer much information before her death. My father, Thomas Palmer Bowers, is reticent to look into family history but I am very interested. Any information will be helpful.

Wallace C. Bowers

I am looking for the parents and siblings of Wallace C. Bowers. He was born in Tennesee. He had a sister named Estelle. I know he was working and present in Cook County Illinois in 1930 and listed himself as married. He married my grandmother (Helga) and had two children, Wallace Carl Bowers, Jr. and Bonnie or Bonita Estelle Bowers (my mother). The family moved to Tennesee and stayed there for 4-5 years sometime in 1948 when my mother was an infant.


Herman F. Bowers

I am trying to locate information for my Aunt on her Family. Her father was Herman F. Bowers from Milwaukee, WI. He died in 1948 in Aurora, IL. He had several brothers (Abe, Ed, Bill, Gyp, and an unknown brother) and sisters (Eddy, Ella, and Della). I do not know who his father or mother were. Most of the relatives stayed in Wisconsin but one brother moved to Michigan. Any assistance is appreciated.


George Washington Bower's father

After many years of looking for George's father, I have found the 1880 Indiana census misspelled the family name. It looks clear to me but they spelled it Brower and he used William instead of James. I am not sure if he is James William or William James Bower. I do have marriage and birth certificates that say James W. Bower was married to Phebe Jarvis in 1874. I would like any other information anyone has on this family prior to 1880.

Site maintenance - March 20, 2012

I did a little site maintenance this evening. I combined the "Guest Book" entries into the main Bowers Forum. I decided there was no real need to split the two, so you might see OLD entries which look like they were just recently posted... They were just moved over to simply things.
