Family Records of Ken Fiebelman. Ken Fiebelman is a descendant of Andrew and Katherine (Howeth) Bowers as follows: Lawrence Fiebelman, Letie Sellers, William Sellers, Catherine Bowers, Andrew and Katherine (Howeth) Bowers. His home address is 1202 Gertrude St., Salem, MO 65560. He can also be reached at Ken Fiebelman's Antiques, Ozark Museum & Information Center on State Highway 19 South in Salem, MO (tel: 573-729-5707). Ken is a recognized authority on the history of the Central Missouri Ozarks, a vocation he began when he was about 10 years old when he became the caretaker for the Rocky Ford Cemetery located on the Fiebelman farm. As a teenager, he assisted a local Salem historian in gathering cemetery data, which further sparked his interest in local history. He was elected as the first president of the Dent County Historical Society in 1966. In 1991, he was awarded the Award of Merit by the Missouri State Genealogy Society. As President of the Dent County Historical Society, he directed and produced the three volume Ozark Heritage series of Dent County Histories, published by the Dent County Historical Society (Vol. 1, 1978; Vol 2., 1980 and Vol. 3, 1994). He also assisted in the preparation of the history of Crawford County, Missouri, published by the Crawford County History Book Committee in 1987. Considerable information on our Bowers, including but not limited to the information for which this source is cited, is included in these books. I've included source citations for the books, if the volume and page number were known to me. Contact Ken for the current availability of these books. One of the sources of Bowers family information for Ken's work has been the Wiley and Mary (Bowers) Dyer Family Bible, which is in his possession. It had previously been in the possession of Nick Dyer, a son of Wiley and Mary. Ken obtained the bible from Nick's last wife's family. Besides the information it contains on Wiley and Mary's family, it is also the source for the death dates of Andrew and Katherine (Howeth) Bowers. Ken has provided the author with xerographic copies of the family pages from this bible.
