Hi Dale, I'm a shirttail relative of yours and am also researching the Mower family and just found Walter Mower's book on line, which is what got me back to Richard. I originally could only get to Samuel Mower in the fourth generation (the one that married Comfort Larned or Learned) thanks to some DAR records. Do you know what Richard's wife's (Alice) maiden name was? I have been unable to find it anywhere.I'd be glad to give you anything I have, but I bet you have it already. You may email me with information if you like.
