23 February, 1997 Greg Mentzer. gmentzer@wserv.com BAUER / BOWER / BOWERS

I am directly descended from Andreas Bauer, Bower, Bowers who was born approx. 1761, his parents were Michael and Maria Barbara Bauer. Michael and Maria Barbara lived in Donegal Township, Lancaster County and apparently bought land with Michael's brother, Andrew, in 1758. Michael's other children were, Anna Margaretha, born, approx. 1758, Christopher, born December 5, 1765 and Maria Barbara, born November 21, 1766. Michael apparently, lived out his life in Donegal Township, Lancaster County, PA and died sometime close to 1789. Andrew, Michael's son, married Mary _________. Andrew and Mary had the following children, Michael, born September 25, 1789, Henry, born June 6, 1792, George, April 8, 1795, Barra, born December 4, 1797 and David, born May 20, 1808. I am descended from David Bowers who married Nancy Stout (I believe she too is from Dauphin County.). Apparently Andrew and Mary Bower moved from Lancaster County, PA to Swatara Township, Dauphin County prior to 1820. Andrew must have died before 1830 and now David Bower is listed as living in Swatara Township in 1830 federal census. David moves to Cumberland County, Frankford Township and then Mifflin Township sometime before 1840. David dies February 2, 1881 and is buried in Lower Paxtang (Paxton) Township at the German Baptist Church along Union Deposit Road. Apparently he was a Dunkard. Can you help me with more Bower information. Thanks
