I forgot to mention that I am also related to Jacob Bowser but he is a 5th great uncle on my father's side or something like that. His grandfather Mathias was my 6th great grandfather.

So there is some connection on the Bowser side as well.

Good morning, Melissa!

My line back to our common ancestors (Frederick Bowser and Margaret McNabb) is:

Kelly Marshall (me, born 1951)
Betty Shankle Marshall (born 1922)
Maude Elizabeth Bowser (1883-1969, sister of Salome)
Frederick Bowser and Margaret McNabb.

Let's keep in touch about this--it's exciting. I have some of my Grandmother's family photos, all unidentified. I'm wondering in Ralph is one them? I will be happy to get you a copy of the Frederick Bowser family photo--the only one I have with all five family members together. Our ancestor Margaret McNabb Bowser, died at a very young age and their father and various family members reared the three children.

Thanks for posting Ralph's photo. He is my mother's full cousin--they were children of sisters Sally Bowser Shoop and Maude Elizabeth Shankle. It's a handsome photo. My Mom is still living at 88 years and has great stories she tells about Aunt Sally's life and peculiarities.

Are you a descendant of Ralph's? If so, what cousins would that make us? Where do you live? I'm in Boardman Ohio--about a 90 minute drive t0 Kittanning. I hope to hear from you.

I remember seeing his photo before, decades ago, before his Aunt Maude(my grandmother) died.

Hi, I noticed you are a descendent of John P Smith and posted a photo. Please contact me at I would like to see if there is a chance to get a better photo of him (bigger). Do you have any info on the rest of his children?
