Thanks for your reply. This Nancy Clower Myers Wright data that I have been searching for looks better all the time.
Since it appears that you are a direct descendant of Nancy Clower Myers, you would my cousin of some sorts. I haven't figured the exact relationship out yet. But we would have a common couple in our ancestry being that of Jonathan and Mary (Anna Maria) Shuler Clower. This would be through two of their daughters - Elizabeth Clower Green (my Great Great Grandmother) and her sister, Nancy, your 4g grandmother.
I assume that you have read all the strings of replies on this topic that precedes your reply. I have a question. In posting #229, I quoted a reply from a research volunteer at the Caldwell County Genealogical and Historical Society. Part of that reply was: "Jarred was married 18 December 1820 to Nancy Clowers who was born 07 March 1803 in GA and died 1870 in Guadalupe Co." Can you verify Nancy's death date as given here?
As you may have noted in the string, I inquired about early newspapers in the area (dated around 1870) that might have carried death notices or obituaries of local residents. I have not heard back from that inquiry as yet. That source might help pin down some things.
From what I have, i.e. that Nancy died in Prairie Lea, your comment: "I believe a daughter would know where her mother was buried; especially with her own son buried in the plot,.." would make sense and would come as close to being fact as possible. It is really too bad, as often does happen, that graves are unmarked or that tombstones have been destroyed, especially in the older cemeteries, and no original cemetery records exist. I have run into this several times. I was hoping that more definitive data might be found in a newspaper notice or obit to support what we know and what you have provided. It just may not exist, so we go with the best first hand knowledge that we have.
Would you like to have that ancestral data on Nancy that I am writing up for Revis?
Thanks again for your efforts and your reply. This does help in our Clower family research a lot.
Regards to a "new" cousin,
