RE: Coffman Family
Dear Jerry, Thank you for the Message and yes I know we are related from what I can tell cousin.
I made a promise to my mother before she passed away that I would find my father Samuel Joseph Coffman family and from my mother's notes and hours of studying my Williams & Coffman family members , I feel so blessed by the grace of God and all of the support of people on Find a Grave who have played a large part in help me keep that promise to my mother.
I will take some time to find our connection Jerry.
Take care and hope to stay in contact.
Sincerely, Lori Coffman Karabel

RE: Bowers Family
Hello Jerry,
I'm afraid that I do not have your Leonard Bowers, or any of his family in my research data base.
I would speculate that he is from a different Bowers line than my Bowers.
There were, at least, three lines of Bowers that I am aware of. Mine was the New England line beginning with George Bower(s), from England, in 1636 in Scituate, Mass. There was also a Pennsylvania Bowers/Bauers family of German heritage. Then a 'Southern' Bowers family from the Maryland-Virginia area, but I don't know about their country of origin.
A few of my NE Bowers line did move and settle down in Delaware, and a couple more went early into Georgia.
If you know of connections of your line with my NE line, please let me know.

RE: George Bowers
Sorry, I don't have any pictures or additional info on the Bowers. The names you mentioned are not in my family line. Have fun hunting for info!

Hi Jerry, I'm sorry, but my Bowers roots are much earlier than that and branch into female linse so early that I never followed cousins lines. Good luck. anne

RE: Knoxville Cemetery
I don't believe there are any records kept on this cemetery, Jerry, but I will try to check further.

RE: Ernest Smith
Hello Jerry,

Here is what I have found:

My Grandfather, Ernest Smith... Findagrave ID: 85941674

Great Grandmother, Ada Young Smith... Findagrave ID:119102378

Her dad was Lawrence Perry Young. I see that his second wife was an Eli, but Ada was born to the first wife. No relation. Bummer! Thanks for pointing it out!
