  • William Bowers 1787 - 1860 Major Breakthrough

    Thanks to DNA testing results we have made a major breakthrough for William Bowers 1787 Virginia - 1860 Arkansas. DNA matches have clearly identified 13 DNA matches to two of his siblings; George Bowers 1783 Virginia - 1856 Carroll County, VA and Andrew Jackson Bowers Jr. 1791 Rockbridge County, VA - 1849 Grainger County, VA. Their father, my 5th Great, has been identified as Andrew Bowers Sr. 1753 York Co. PA - 1833. There seems to be some question about where he died. We have been searching for concrete evidence of William's family for over 20 years.

    Always good to see some positivity out here, and I assume that this is thanks to yDNA, which is the red-headed stepchild of DNA for the general public, who have no idea how powerfully it can bolster, if not totally prove, a plausible historical/genealogical hypothesis.
