Thank you Tom for the beautiful picture of the Wiggleworth headstone.
It is sad that the dates for Iona and Evelyn are not completed! I was quite surprised to see that!

Thank you for taking your time and getting this picture for me.

RE: Philander Bowers Photo
Hi Tom,

Do I know Philander's father's name?

Yes and No. I have also been working on the Bowers ancestry.

Here is the short answer. (Long answer to follow.) I think that Philander's biological father is Christian Stone Bowers. I know that his step-father is Emmanuel Simmons.

Here is the long answer...

In the 1930 US Census, Philander is listed as the uncle of the head-of-household of the C. B. (Charles Baxter) and Vista Hopkins family.

Using "Find A Grave" I have been able to determine that Vista was the daughter of Mahulda Davis who was the daughter of Emmanuel Simmons and Eleanor (Nelly) Snyder. In the 1860 census, Mahulda Simmons (age 10) is listed as the daughter of Emmanuel and Nelly Simmons. She is listed with siblings, Mildred (age 3) and Philander (age 16). This Philander would be the uncle of Vista Hopkins. Additionally, Philander's obituary indicates that he wanted to be laid to rest by his mother and sister. Both Nelly Simmons and Mahulda Davis (nee Simmons) are buried near Philander.

Nelly Snyder and Emmanuel Simmons were married 2 Jan 1847 (about 3 years and 3 months after Philander was born).

Now, as to Philander's biological father...
Several years ago I received a packet of information from Robert ("Hank") Melvin Bowers (1936-2009) before he passed away which contained Philander's obituary, a list of his children and their spouses, and among other things a typed listing of the John Bowers and Christina Ruhlman family with a hand-written note on one of the sons, Christian Stone Bowers. This note said, and I paraphrase:
This is my great-great-great-grandfather. He is the father of Philander Bowers.

I do not know who wrote this. I have tried to ask Hank's family where the information came from but have not gotten a response.

Warm Regards,
Bruce
