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 -see my profile.
thanks again! Diane

Thank you
Thanks, anyway. I thought Memorial# 81512949 might be his dad.

I saw you left a flower in his wife's memorial, so thought you might know--was James H. Gowdey a Civil War vet? If so, did he muster in from Illinois? I am trying to link memorials. Thank you!

Family relations
Hi, My name is Beth Evans, and we are related through the Benson line. Polly Benson Mozena and her husband Joseph Mozena are my third great grandparents. Will be happy to swap information on our lines. But I have another question. Your Smeltzer/Smelser line, does any of it cross paths in the DC/Maryland/Virginia region? My stepfather has Smeltzer/Smelsers in his ancestral line. Just curious on whether my mom and stepfather's lines intersect. Thanks.
