Susannah BOWERS 1 3 4
Although Edward Crim's website gives Susannah's date of birth as 16 Sep 1768, it appears his sources are pension records, which are included on his website, and they give her date of birth as 15 Sep 1768, as do the records provided by Gary Bettcher.
Susannah married John SHOBER on 22 Dec 1785 in Berkeley County, (West) Virginia.1 3 4 (John SHOBER was born on 17 Aug 1759 in Frederick County, Maryland 3, christened on 9 Sep 1759 3 and died on 3 Oct 1836 in Berkeley County, (West) Virginia 3.)

Bowers Family Records of Gary Bettcher, citing Revolutionary War pension records. Although he is not a Bowers descendant, Gary began researching the Bowers family of Berkeley County, Virginia/West Virginia as a result of his purchase and restoration of the Home Farm of Henry Bowers. Jr., built in 1805. He has been as meticulous in his research as in the restoration of the Home Farm and has provided me with many records that are only available locally. The Bowers family is very fortunate that it was Gary who bought the Home Farm. Those interested in learning more about his restoration adventure and his Bowers research can contact Gary at email@example.com. A photo of the Home Farm before restoration can be viewed at http://www.livelyroots.com/gerald/9919.htm and a photo after restoration can be viewed on this website at the page entitled "Other Photos of Interest."
