This Philip BOWERS is not related to the SCHINDELDEKER line. There is a very good chance this BOWERS line stems from Ireland or the UK, not the palatine area in Europe.

I have information on this BOWERS/KIPPS line going forward after they migrated and homesteaded in Jefferson County, Pennsylvania.

KIPPS graves can be found in several cemeteries located in little towns just south of Martinsburg, West Virginia.

(1) Looking for parents of Catherine or Caroline KIPPS b. ca 1786 Rockingham Co., VA; d. 1856, Gaskill/Big Run Jefferson Co., PA. Have her father listed as Michael KIPPS but no name for mother. Have a possible brother, George.
(2) Also, looking for parents names for her husband, Philip BOWERS b. 6 Dec 1787 New Market, Shenandoah Co., VA d. Apr 1856, Gaskill/Big Run, Jefferson Co., PA.
