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 (firstname.lastname@example.org
) 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.
