Classification: Query
Surnames: Bower, Thomas, Tompert
Family member seeking ANY information about the Nebraska family of Walter W. Bower who lived in Lisco in 1900, Lost Creek in 1910 & 1920, and Oshkosh, Nebraska in 1930, all in Garden County, Nebraska. Wife was Sylvia S. (Thomas) Bower with two daughters, Zula and Buelah Bower. My Grand-Uncle Walter Bower passed away between 1920-1930 probably in Lost Creek. I have a picture of the family taken in Alliance, Nebraska about 1895. Their daughter Buelah married Charles L Tompert about 1910. Charles Tompert was a newspaper editor in Lisco in 1930.
