Abraham Bowers
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Dec. 26, 1839, England
Death: Oct. 12, 1911
Salt Lake City
Salt Lake County
Utah, USA

Abraham Bowers was born in Oldberry, Worcestershire, Engand and was the son of James Bowers and Maria Lay Bowers. He emigrated to America with his parents and was a member of the first Handcart Company that made its way to Utah.

His father died along the trail and Abraham, who was just 17 at the time, buried him in a wagon box along the trail. To read about the touching story, go to James Bowers' grave here on Findagrave: (Bowers, James b. Jan. 27, 1811 d. Jun. 21, 1856).

After making it to Utah, Abraham settled in Nephi, where he became a farmer and a cabinet maker. He married Johanna Agnetta Jonsson and they were the parents of nine children: Abraham James (1862), Mary Anne (1865), Elsie Nettie (1867), Rose (1869), Julia (1872), Sara Francis (1874), Agnes Jemima (1877), Oscar (1880), and Ethel May (1883).

It is unclear if his full name was Abraham Bowers or Abraham James Bowers although he had a son and grandson who were both named Abraham James.
