Marlen, My mother is a niece of a Frank Bowermaster who was the son of Aaron and Hester Long Bowermaster. Aaron was a son of Peter and Hannah. My grandfather Lee was the youngest son of the family. My Mom has the orginal of a family picture taken when my grandfather was in his late teens. Mom was raised by her grandmother Bowermaster and Aunt Becky in the family home in Bowersville.There were several sons, one of whom died after a fall from a cherry tree.
One interesting thing about the Bowermasters was their tie with the Harris family. Lee married a granddaughter of Wm. "Bill" Harris who's wife was a daughter of Samuel Bowermaster, another son of Peter and Hannah. My mother, at 88, may well be the last living grandchild of Aaron and Hester.
