I know, every family claims to have a Mayflower ancestor, and if they were all correct in their claims, the Mayflower would have had to have been larger than Noah's Arc.
I had known most of my life about the Sherman connections to early America; arriving in about 1635. I had also research the Sherman/Simmons/Lord connection to early Hartford Connecticut. But, it was not until 2004 that I found on the Internet a direct Bower connection to the Mayflower.
For the record, here is the Bower-Mayflower connection:
