Bower, Philip Lee was born in Botetourt County in 1863. His parents were Philip Bower and Mary M. Vest Bower. A Lee Bower (age 28) married Cora Francis Lemon (age 23) on 1/8/1891. On the marraige register at the courthouse, Lee's parents are listed as Philip and Mary Bower. Lee Bower died in 1947 and is buried next to Cora F. Bower, however his stone states his name as Robert Lee Bower. I am trying to establish that the three Lee's mentioned here are the same person. Also why the name change from Philip to Robert or was it merely a mistake on the gravestone? Thanks

We are looking for information on George Chapman. He was first married to Nancy Crawford on August 16 1814 in Botetourt County, Virginia. I believe Nancy's father may have been Andrew Crawford, Jr or Sr. George Chapman then married Lucinda Wilson on July 31 1820 also in Botetourt County, Virginia. Lucinda's father may have been James Wilson. We have information on the child of George and Nancy (Crawford) Chapman. We have no information if George and Lucinda (Wilson) had any children, George's death date, etc. This information came from the Botetourt County Virginia Marriage Book 1770-1853. Any information would be helpful.
