It's been awhile since I received the following in my inbox, but I am
currently cleaning out all my old mail and came across this. I am wondering
if you could look in your Berks County church records for the surname of
SOWERS. I can't seem to find where my SOWERS line came to Jefferson county.
I just have my great great grandfather's, Benjamin SOWERS birth year-1803
and that he came from another county from the east. Could you check this
surname for me and let me know what SOWERS names you can find? I have a
Benjamin and Jonas and a Henry but can't seem to connect them. Thanks so
