Capt. George Bowers was the son of Elizabeth Ann Foster Bowers Phillips. My Grandmother Fogg said she remembered seeing him (her great grand father) in his casket, wearing his military uniform and long white gloves. He was Captain in the militia in the Civil war.
Elizabeth Ann Phillips is the daughter of Elizabeth Watkins & John Hamblen of Prince Edward County, Va.
Nancy Brooks Bowers, wife of George Bowers, is the daughter of William Byrd Brookes, born in Va, and Sarah Paine Brookes, born in Va.
Edward D Bowers is son on George Bowers.
Ann Bowers is the wife of Edward Bowers.
Elizabeth A. Austin Butler is daughter of George Bowers.
Margaret Cassandra Phillips Reeves' parents are buried in the Elliott Cemetery BUT now their tombstone is missing. Mother and I visited it many times and thankfully have copied the information down as only his name has made the cemetery list. Her father is Thomas Phillips, b. 25 Sept 1830, d. 27 Mar 1905. She is Ellezaney Finley Phillips, b. 20 Oct 1831, d. 23 April 1905. Found Ellezaneys name in a census record as Elvira, could be a middle name? Also found Mother-in-law Mable Finley living with them.
