Re: Thomas and Angelina Lett Bowers of Mecklenburg County, Virginia
I am not sure where Thomas was located in 1850.He would have been 16 and could have worked on another farm, being listed as being of that family's surname.Then again, he may have just gotten left off the census in the William Bowers family.You will never know for certain, there are too many possibilities.
I know for certain that Thomas was the son of William and Elizabeth Lett Bowers.It is clearly listed on his marriage record with Angelina F. Lett in 1869.
I do not know what happened to Francis M. Bowers.I may be able to find his death certificate though at the archives.
As for Giles Bowers, the only S. that runs in that line is Sanford, to my knowledge.However, I have no idea what it stood for in his case.
Do you have any old photos?I have one of Elizabeth Ann Lett Bowers and one of Martha Maria Curtis Bowers Dunn.
