I know nothing of this branch of my family. My Dad split when I was 4 so this is fuzzy:
Marvin & Ethel, died when last living in San Bernardino, CA.
Marvin had about 3 daughters and one son, my Dad.
Dad is Mel Bowers and lives in a shack by the river... Near Las Vegas. He may have been born in Oklahoma. He had 4 boys. Marlon, Matthew, Monty (Melvin Montgomery Bowers), Michael.
Us four boys, my Dad and Grandfather all have the same initials. MMB
We each have 3 kids.
