Thomas W. Shows/Showers of Louisiana
Posted by: Diana Ware (ID *****5409) Date: September 11, 2003 at 13:05:58

I'm seeking information about the family of Thomas Shows, born 1858 near Blanchard in Caddo Parish, LA. I have been told he may have changed the spelling of his name to Showers. In the 1900 census his name was spelled Showers.

He married Carrie Hull in 1887. According to the census they had these children: Lula, Lena, Jodie, Fern (all girls) and Doswell. The gravestone of Carrie Showers is in the Blanchard cemetery, she died in 1901. I can't find them in the Caddo census after that. I did find a SSDI record for Doswell Shows who died in 1963 in Louisiana.

I will be happy to share data about the ancestors of Thomas Shows if I can contact any descendants. Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks, Diana
