The earliest direct ancestor I have identified is George Bowers (born about 1740, died 1782) in Hagerstown, MD. His wife was Christina. Their son was John Leonard Bowers who fought in the Revolutionary War. John Leonard settled in East Tennessee (now Carter County) and had numerous children. I have not been able to go back from George. I would at least like to determine my national origin - Scots/Irish, German or other. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
I just joined Bowers.com today. Looking forward to further activity on the site. Marvin Bowers
