    ------------------------------------------------------ begin speculation

    The following is speculation on my part!!!!

    Philemon Bowers - 1754 - 1793 son of Giles (1756-1791) and Sarah Beal Bowers
    Phillip Philemon Bowers - 1788-1857 - son of David and Ann Bowers; David d. abt 1796 Old 96th Dist.

    1) Is David a son of Giles and Sarah Beal Bowers as well?
    2) Is David a sibling of Alexander Andrew Bowers who is my ancestor? They died within a few years of each other; Alexander died in Newberry County (within the "Old 96th District" in South Carolina, which is also where David died).
    ----------------------------------------------------- end speculation :-)

    Alexander Andrew Bowers came to S.C. on the Upton in 1752 as a single man. He petitioned for bounty and received a 50 acre grant on headwaters of Crims Creek. In the same area, he had a late colonial grant of 200 acres. The 50 acre original bounty grant was deeded in 1805 by grantee to son, George Bowers
    (Newberry Deeds H-102). The 200 acre grant was sold 1813 by the children of Alexander Andrew Bowers (Newberry Deeds P-178) indicating that Bowers died between 1805 and 1813.
     
    Alexander Andrew Bowers married Anna Barbara Hermann. Anna Barbara Hermann received a land grant in 1766 near Prosperity and on 21 October 1805 the children of the grantee sold their mother's grant to their brother, Stephen Bowers (Newberry Deeds H-165). The names of the children of Alexander Andrew Bowers and Anna Barbara Hermann are given in this deed as well as in the deed to the sale of Bowers' 200 acre grant. The land being sold became the homeplace of Stephen Bowers.
     
      In an equity (Bartholomew Long and wife, Elizabeth, et al vs. William Sheely, 1834), a Mrs. Bowers is mentioned as a sister of John Windle Shealy. This record is discussed in D. K. Hinson's "The Lost Shealy Women" (Lexington Genealogical Exchange IV(I):2, 1984). Records from St. John the Baptist Lutheran Church in Unterhausen, Germany, reveal that Maria Margaretta Haupter, the wife of John Shely, was first married to Matthaues Hermann who fathered the child, Anna Barbara, born 27 April 1738. Anna Barbara Hermann was a half-sister to John Windle Shealy and a step-daughter to John Shely.
     
      Andrew Bowers was reimbursed for Provisions and Forage supplied in 1782 during the Revolutionary War (Accounts Audited #647).  Capt. John Adam Summer was authorized to receive payment. (information contributed by Rosemary Bowers Dodd)
