Levi Burton Bowers, Alfred Bowers' father. Undated. Photographer Unknown.



Note: US Pensioners (1818-1872, Michigan Offic, for widow Eliszabeth,

wife of Joab Bowers may point to documentation of Joab’s service in the Revolutionary War. Revisions in the Bowers Family Tree have been entered.

For the complete changes, look under Pages; Family Tree, Bowers section.

The different font styles used below indicate both the original family information inTimes italic font, Arial font for newly entered information and documentation, and bold Arial font indicates comments about discrepencies.

PLEASE, Be patient with the strange formatting that sometimes occurs, which is caused by a conflict in Html codes as written on my computer, which is transferred to Blogger, and which I do not know how to correct. For instance, I wrote this paragraph in the same size font, but it is smaller in the posted version, and numerous automatic indentations occur which I cannot correct. Some fonts were the same when I copied the document, but were mysteriously converted to a new font which will not change when I put in the correction.


Joab Bowers Sr /BD(6/2/1745 Killingly Turnpike, Windham CT—)

M. Elizabeth(1rst)(1746-1765)m 1764. 1 son (Born in Dublin, Ireland?

M.Jane Clark(2nd)(1746-1787) m 6/5/1766 Cromwell,Middlesex, CT. 1 son

[5 trees]

( Joab is listed as Jane’s son and that does not make sense as he’s born over a year before Jane married his father—an out of wedlock birth?a mistake in one of the dates?) More likely, Joab is Elizabeth’s son -BD 1765? Did she die in childbirth?

Joab was said to have been born in Dublin, came here with father Joab

who married Jane in Connecticut?

Records:Neversink—just listed as Joab so could be either father or son[1810, 1840 “veteran”] The elder Joab would have been 90.
