I am looking on info on Frank Elmer Bowman. He was b. June 24, 1890 in LaPorte (City), Blackhawk County, Iowa. His parents were Cyrus (Tyrus, Silas, Syrus)and Mary (Bishop) Bowman. He married Besse Belle Bingaman. I belive he was born at home because there is no record of his birth. The main reason I am looking for info on him is to get info on his parents. Thank You.

Hello - I think a sister of your Bowman was Ida M. Bowman, and she married a brother of my grandfather, Cornelius Morris Cramer on 18 Dec 1888. I have lots of Cramer info.

Hi,
Why do you think they are connected? I am not sure if he had a sister Ida. I only know of Lizzie (Elizabeth). I don't know if he had any more sisters but I am not sure. I have found out a little more info on Franks parents.
Thanks

Well, it is a long shot, but if you are interested in what I have, then you can decide if it is important. Let me know, Phyl in Reno

Sure, I'll take any info that you may have. I have found out that Frank has at least 6 siblings and one of them was Andrew since he is listed in the Mt. Carroll. IL census of 1910 with Frank.
Thanks,

Thank You, Thank You.... This seems like a match! I will take any info that you have on this couple. My mother never knew about this sister of Frank's. No one had talked about her or the rest of his family except for Lizzie.

Hi Linda - Oh boy - a match! That is great. The C.M. Cramer was one of my grandfather Levi Charles Cramer's older brothers. So, if you do have a verifiable connection, I can furnish loads of info - as I said......However, if you can reply to me personally, it would help me a lot, as this has the advantage of letting others know what is going on, but it is inconvenient.........I can send attachments, or stuff by snail mail - which ever is best......

#2 for today!.....It would help me a lot if you have any information on the Bowman family. This is also very interesting because the first Cramer (Kreamer) who came to America in 1710 with the Palatines, married a Baumann (Bowman) for his second wife.....This might all tie together.... Phyl in Reno

Would you happen to have a George Cramer that lived in Iroquois Co.,Illinois in 1871 ? I don't have a middle initial for him or much else to go on. I have a marriage license from 1871 where he married a Gesina Maria Dierks.
Their children were : Ben 1874;Ill.-1942;Idaville,IN.,
Lambert 1879;Ill.-1942;Idaville,IN, Onno 1879;Ill.-1933;Ill.
Anton 1885;Ill.-1972;Idaville,IN , George 1883;Ill , Maggie and Kate Cramer .
I have been told that George may have been married 3 times. Gesina remarried in 1888 to Riender Schriefer.
I have hit a major brick wall on the Cramer's ! If you might have any info on my Cramer's , I would greatly appreciate it .
