My line is through Commodore and Washington Sowers. Commodore's son John G. Sowers married Washington's daughter Elizabeth Ellen Sowers. Commodore and Washington might be brothers and possible the sons of Albright Sowers. Other than Albright's marriage record in Maryland there is no trace of him. The only time his name has come up is in a bio of one of Washington's sons that moved to Kansas. Washington was in Pennsylvaina on the 1840 Census, 1850 Morgon Co., Ohio, 1860-1870 Hocking Co., Ohio and on the 1880 census his wife was in Johnson co., Kansas. Washington died in 1874 in Kansas. There is a lot of confusion with this family. No real records as to who is the parents of who. Be careful if you are just starting out in the family search. Don't just beleive everything people tell you is a fact. It might just be a theory. Email me if you want more detailed information.
