I would like to call this to your attention. The statement about John Bower
is not accurate. John Ludwig Bower Sr. 1763-1851 and his wife Christina
Fries c1774-1840 moved from PA to Muhlenburg County KY after the birth of
their daughter Mary in c1796 and remained there until c1812 when they moved
to Clay Township, Montgomery County OH where both died and are buried in the
Worman Cemetery a mile or so south of Phillipsburg. They were clearly a
Dunker family from the marriages of most of their children and the fact that
the namesake son John Ludwig Jr. 1800-1879 was a Brethren Elder.

p86 The only other clearly identifiable Dunker name on Francis Stump's
will is John Bower (Bowers) who signed as a witness. He was apparently
from Manheim Township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, and lived near
Stump in Bullskin Township, Fayette County, Pennsylvania, before moving
to the Green River country sometime before 1798...In October 1810 he
sold his land on Talbots Branch of Clifty and moved to the Brethren
settlement in Shelby County...son, Jacob Brower . . .Hazel Creek Baptist
