Here is the information that I have about the Bowers family.

Carl Bowers born in May 1888 in New York, USA (most likely Hector, Schuyler, New York) son of Albert L. Bowers and Della. Married Mabel T. Parke (1886-1973) and had two boys Robert Carl Bowers (1912-1993) and Gerald Park Bowers (1918-1995). Census records show Hector, New York for 1900, 1910, 1920 and then Geneva, New York 1930.

Albert L. Bowers born Oct. 31, 1840 son of Ebenezer Bowers and Susan in Ohio. Married Della about 1870 and children Helen (1871-), May (1872-), Charles (1874-), Seely (1879-), Albert (1882-), Lucy (1884-), Carl (1888-), Rodney (1890-) and Ray Elliot (1893-). Census records show he was in Hector, New York for 1850, 1860, 1870, 1880, 1900 and 1910.

Ebenezer Bowers born about 1793 in New York and dies before 1860. He Married Susan (1880-) and children Mary A. (1829-), Isaac N. (1831-), Milton (1834-), William (1836-), Lotty Jane (1839-), Albert L. (1840-), and Sarah (1843-). Census records for 1850 show him in Hector, New York

I’m looking for parents of Della (wife of Albert L. Bowers), Susan (wife of Ebenezer Bowers) and then parents of Ebenezer Bowers. Also hints on the children of Albert or Ebenezer would also be helpful.

Thanks for this information. Interesting age gap. Hopefully having Adele's middle name will help trace her down more.

Hi Greg -the name "Elliot" is not a middle name, according to the document, but the last name of Adele; the document listed the maiden name of Adele as "Adele Elliott" -good hunting on your project, Resp, GJ Messmer

Surnames: Bowers, Covert, Stuart, Dickson, Mathews.
Greg,
My husbands great grandfather was Gilbert Jennings Bowers. His parents were Ebenezer Bowers, Nov 1792-26 July 1857 & Susan Bennett, Jul 26, 1800 - Sep 3, 1880, both buried Hector Union cem. Burdett, NY. So far I have not been able to get any further back than Ebenezer or Susan. There is a Bennettsburg right next to Burdett and possibly Susan's family is that Bennett.
There was a first child; Thomas "Jefferson", but nothing else is known on him. Our family has papers on this family, but after my husband died, I gave all of them to his brother, Robert (rdickson@rochestr.rr.com) He may be able to help you further.
I do have the following on the children of Ebenezer;
Mary Ann, b. 1831, m. John Hand
Isaac Newton, 1833, lvd w/ parents in 1855.
Wm W., 1836, m. Mary A. Lewis. Fought civil War. Killed?
Rachel "Lotty" Jane, b. 23 March 1839, m. Olvier Horace Pruden, Jr. (this is also my husband's line through is father. A double connection.)
Albert L., is your line
Sarah, b. 1844, m. Fred Elliott.
Somewhere there is a picture of Ebenezer. I also took pictures of all the family g.s. in the cem. All with Robert.
Any questions I will be glad to help you with.
