I am researching Joseph Bowers (b ~ 1822 in Ireland and his wife was Eliza), in Plaquemines parish. I'm trying to find out who his father was. I think that his brothers were your Robert Bowers and also John Bowers. Their father may have been James Bowers, born ~1815 in Ireland. Would you happen to have any information on these brothers or who their father was (was he James).
