Searching for Bowers ancestors : LUSENET : Genealogy Queries for Stanly County, North Carolina : One Thread

I am searching for the Bowers side of my family in Stanly (Montgomery) county. i got as far as my great great grandparents but I want to go back one more generation to the Civil War. My great grandparents are Alonzo Bowers, born June 20, 1891 and died April 17, 1929. His parents are G.Preston Bowers and Tina Bowers. I would also like to know what the G stands for if possible. Alonzo married Essie Blanche Talbert, born June 18, 1898 and died December 15, 1984. Her parents were Frank Talbert and Ellie Talbert. Alonzo and Essie were married February 19, 1916 in Stanly county. That is all I have so far. But was hoping someone could give me some more info on their parents and if any of the men served in the Civil War.

Thank You, Christine Taylor
