Hi all! I am brand-new to Wikitree and just in time for the Scan-a-thon. I wanted to share this family photo of Homer Bowers with the community. Location: Ann Arbor, Michigan, United States. Date: 1865. He's my grandfather's grandfather.

Isn't he fancy? He opted not to fight in the Civil War, instead going up to Michigan to study medicine for a year after graduating from Wabash College in his native Indiana. He returned to his home town of New Ross and became the town doctor. And who wouldn't, with a hat like that??

Wow! What a great photo! He looks so young, but very distinguished and sober. The ruffles at his neck, and that Hat, tipped at a jaunty angle -- quite the dapper  young man. Thank you for sharing this. And welcome to WikiTree!
