The Bower farm in Franklin Township, Beaver County, Pa., in the 1890s.

    Welcome. 
    This site examines the history of my ancestors, primarily the Bowers, Price, Nye and McDaniel families.
    Following are some of my earliest ancestors in these lines:
    + Diel Bauer emigrated from Germany to Pennsylvania around 1750.
    + Andreas Neu immigrated from Leistadt, Germany, to New Jersey in 1733 and later moved to Pennsylvania.
    + Christian Price and his son Nicholas emigrated from Hesse-Darmstadt, Germany, to Hancock County, Ohio, in the 1830s.
    + James B. McDaniel was born in Delaware in 1802 and migrated to Wayne County, Ohio, and later Wyandot County, Ohio.
    Other families in my ancestry include: Moyer, Bellas, Lesnett, Potter, Hartzel, Stamm, Piersol, Stilly, Custard, Graff, Gerwig, McDonald and Erb in Beaver and Butler counties in Pennsylvania; and Beagle, Dove, Frederick, Tracy, Tracht and Warner in Hancock and Wyandot counties in Ohio.
    Finally, there are a number of interesting families who settled in the Dutch colony of New Netherland during the seventeenth century.  I have just begun researching this branch of the family so I have not yet completed narratives for most of these lines.  However, I am trying to keep the source lists updated.
    I am always interested in sharing information on these families. Please contact me at
bebowers@hotmail.com for further information.
