Sowers    I would like to dedicate this page to Lew Sowers who gave freely  genealogy materials to me to pass on to others. Even though he did not know me he showed up one day at my door and gave me letters he had found , just because he knew I would see they got a good home and would share them with others.
  Lew lost a long struggle with cancer in 2006.
  Lew had made his own Tombstone.

Lew as his friends and family called him was an Artist-musician-historian and above all a mentor
