Why I am interested in the Bowerman Family
A number of Bowerman descendants were active and able genealogists. As such they have recorded much about not only Bowerman stories and lineages but also many other allied families.
I am not a Bowerman descendant but I do have an interest in the early family through Lavina Saylor who married Judah Bowerman, one of the many children of Ichabod and Jane Bowerman. More than that, the Bowerman material is rich with stories from the period.

Below are links that either focus on Bowerman or are allied with the Bowerman family.
