Terry Stowers

On behalf of the descendants of John Stowers I would like to express our gratitude to Terry Stowers for providing the genealogy information used to populate this database. Terry's initial project was to trace the ancestors and descendants of Samuel Stowers and find a possible link to our ancestor John Stowers. We can all appreciate the effort, dedication and persistence it has taken to collect, consolidate and share this historical data with our family. Thank you Terry
