Times were hard in so many of the southern cities in the years after the "War of the Rebellion". Many familes in the south moved from city to city. Some moved back and forth from Georgia and South Carolina.
There was a very large "Stowers" family in Hart County Georgia. And there were about as many "Stowers" in South Carolina. Especially Abbeville in Anderson County that was located directly across the state line from Elbert and Hart Counties in Georgia.
My family moved to Columbia, South Carolina around 1896 or so, then moved back to Elberton. Around 1920 they moved to Riverside and Los Angeles, California.
There was also a few "Stowers" families in Alabama, Tennessee, Mississippi, Arkansas, Lousiana, Texas and Oklahoma.
