I believe that Eli Mower and Hannah Blossom moved to Stowe, Vermont (I also believe that they lived on Tipsargent Place). They had two sons, Lyman Mower (b.October 29, 1811; d. March 18, 1853) and Josephus Mower (b. January 15, 1817; d. March 26, 1889). Lyman and Josephus seemed to have lived their entire lives in Stowe. Lyman married Caroline Bryant. I can't trace her genealogy (there were a lot of Bryants in Vermont then) but I believe that she was born in 1811 and died on April 20, 1851.

Lyman and Caroline had a son, Richard O. Mower in 1840. They had previously had another son, Augustus, in approx 1836. Richard O. Mower married Phebe Straw, the daughter of Thomas Akely Straw and Phebe Wilkins. Thomas Akely Straw was descended from the Straw and Moody families, two of the first families to settle Stowe in the 1780's. Richard O. Mower and Phebe had a son, Richard T. Mower (sometimes listed as Richard E. Mower) in 1865. He was my great-grandfather.

Hope that is helpful. I traced Hannah Blossom (sister of your ancestor) back to John and Priscilla Alden and to William Brewster. Is that correct?
