Retired. Love genealogy and history. Have been working on a wide variety of family surnames since about 1967 but have been much more active since 1995. Enjoy taking gravestone photos and providing GPS locations for family graves.
RE: ROWE DNA - Joseph ROWE family Hi John, I just wanted to let you know I have the results, not sure what to do with it now, lol. I will have to see how to download the results. Will keep you updated.
Rowe/Smeltzer connection John, I also wanted to let you know the transcription from the 1850 census was incorrect for the birth place of Joseph and Bestey Rowe. It was Va, not Vt. They were from Giles County, Virginia.
RE: Joseph ROWE - DNA ??? I just looked at my records, and in the 1850 census, I see what you are referencing. Yes, I believe that is their daughter, but I have no actual proof at the moment. I will do my best to send you a message as soon as the dna test results are in to see if that is of any help to you. Laura
I am waiting on test results to come in any day. I would say that it is extremely likely that is the case. I am going to go into my files and see what I have on this line of the Rowe family. I will send you a message or email as soon as I am able.
RE: Joseph ROWE - DNA ??? I am a direct descendant of Stephen rowe and also solomon rowe. My dad has just done a dna test, and we are getting ready to send it in. my line is very complicated, as I descend from Stephen and Barbara Huffman Rowe on my paternal side, and Solomon and Elizabeth Drake Rowe on my maternal side. I am writing a book on the Row's and our history. I am anxious to get the results of dads test. How are you related?
Smelser pictures Hi, thank you for your message - I love it when someone comes across a photo that I've rescued! I did find a good home for the pictures, however, if you would like me to, I can email them with your regular email address to see if they want to exchange/share info. I would need your regular email address for that though. Mine is firstname.lastname@example.org -see my profile. thanks again! Diane
