Article on Bowers - by Jim Leas - also from Lynn - sure this was from the Montgomery Magazine years ago as Jim wrote some awesome articles. Always wished someone would scan all of the old MM and put up on a site with a nice index but my would that be one big job. Such wonderful history sitting in books ;(

Bundy Store (thanks Lynn R) - William H. Bundy, was born in Thorntown, Boone County 17 January 1869 and died 6 Jan 1941 - he is buried in Sugar Creek, Montgomery County in the Clouser Cemetery along with his wife, Laura Alice Gordon (15 Sept 1872 Howard County Indiana 4 Sept 1935). William H. was the son of Abraham Darry Bundy and Rose Tetrow. The Bundy (and Wyant, William's grandmother) family were early Boone and Montgomery County pioneers. As a young man of 21, William H. left his native county and moved to Montgomery (1890). Working in the area, he eventually was able to open his dream store in the town of Bowers, which was a thriving community at that time (1899). His store sold hardware, paints, oils, dry goods and groceries, and obviously with the sign advertising Geddes-Brown footwear, he sold shoes, as well. He was prominent in this community, being appointed Postmaster in 1907 (note in the pic the sign saying Bowers PO). Thanks muches to Lynn R.
