The estate papers for Samuel Stowers, b. 1762, who died about 1782, show clearly that he was the son of Abijah and Tabitha Stowers, and the brother of Abijah Jr and Nathan Stowers. The errors mentioned by me in my previous email as being circulated are being corrected, so any researchers of the Stowers family of Worcester Co. Maine should contact me for verification and to correct their records. A copy of the papers, plus a copy of the pension record for the Samuel b. 1764 who died in Maine in 1843 are in my computer and can be sent to anyone interested. Now, if anyone has information on the actual death and/or burial site for Samuel 1762-1782 (possibly Brookfield, which was the home place mentioned in a military record) or if anyone is researching this Samuel, please contact me. Thanks.
