I am doing a bit of research on the Bower family for close friends of mine.
His grandfather was Voltaire Prince Melton (Vic) Bower Born 09/02/1918 - Blacktown, NSW
and married Wilhelmina Jean Daly they had
* Malcolm Robert Bower & Max Bower
malcolm was married twice and first marriage to Coral IRene Adams had
1. Keith Francis Bower 2. Paul Robert Bower 3. Craig Michael Bower
then married again and had two other children who are now 9 and 11 years old
I noticed in the webb pages that there was a renowned Mr Elkin who passed away and on the bottom of the page it says that Vic Bower was his cousin
When I looked at your records Wilhelmine Ellen Bower married Reuben Elkin
and perhaps Vic was a child from John Charles Bower...
In the war records I found Henry Charles Malcolm Bower born 02/01/1916, Sydney, NSW
and feel this could be Vics brother..his next of kin was Eileen Bower which was probably his wife..his date of enlistment was 19/06/1941, he was in the RAAF.
Hope we can make a connection, Craig has lost his ancestors...because the Bower side of things isn't talked about..they just push the Dalys and alot of the children after Vics marriage were named after the Daly side...

My name is Lynn, my father is Henry Charles Malcolm Bower & my mother is Eileen Elizabeth Bower. My father was born at Blacktown NSW 2nd Jan, 1916, his fathers name is Henry Voltaire Bower and mother name is Adelaide Maria Melton.
I find this rather eerie as Craigs’s grandfather names is Voltaire Prince Melton Bower as you can see My fathers father name is Voltaire and my fathers mother maiden name is Melton.
