I really don't have anything on Mary Bower who married Benjamin Van Gundy. Except the possiblity that she was born in Ohio. But even that has no documentation to back it up, just a lead that I found and haven't chased yet. If you find out anything please let me know. Most of the information that I have was gleaned from a wonderful site www.vangundy.net. I've picked up a little bit here and there from other sources, but if you're researching Van Gundys this is an excellent place to start!
