FIND A GRAVE - TOWRY Regarding Rose Etta Biggs Towry -- my mother, Mildred Laverne Towry (known all her life as "Laverne"), was the daughter of Rose Etta Biggs Towry. Mother was the sister of Russell Towry, my uncle (husband of Dulcie). I think there may have been another child -- I remember an Aunt Lois, whom I think I met only once, when I was very small. Is John Everett Towry the son of Dulcie and Russell, and brother of Judy? If so, he is my cousin, whom I haven't seen in years.
LaVerne Towry (Ward) married my father, Benjamin Greenfield Ward, Jr. They had two children, myself, Mildred Evelyn Ward (Alvarado now), in 1946, and my sister, Margaret Elizabeth Ward (now Unale), in 1948. Our father died in 1977 and our mother died in 1981. Both are buried in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
My sister and I lost touch with the Towrys after our grandfather's death, many years ago. We used to visit grandpa and his second wife -- they called her Miss Gyp -- in Muscogee, I believe it was. We visited Uncle Russell and Aunt Dulcie in several places, I think. The one I remember most clearly is Drumright, OK. I remember Aunt Dulcie hollering "John Errett!" when she wanted him to come -- that's what made me open your page. The last time I saw Uncle Russell and Aunt Dulcie was in 1977, when they came out here when my mother died. I had an e-mail note from Jamie a couple years ago (he has a reggae band?) but lost the address in a computer crash and couldn't find him again.
Mother never talked much about family, except her brother Russell, and Dulcie. My sister and I were not even sure of Grandpa Towry's whole right name until recently, nor of my mother's mother's whole right name. We thought her maiden name was Biggs, but were unsure of her first name. I believe my mother was only 13 when her mother died. The only thing mother had that had been her mother's was a broken painted china bowl, much treasured and kept in a quilted satin pouch/envelope thing. I still have it to this day, and keep it carefully put away.
Do you know anything of the history of grandpa and grandma Towry? We've tried unsuccessfully to find them via internet search. We've always wondered where Grandma Towry was buried (I see on your site that it is Stillwell) and also Grandpa Towry. I see his grave on your site as well. Do you know anything more about them? We've always wondered about our "roots."
Wonderful to find relatives!! Thank you for your time and attention. My e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org. I hope this message finds its way to you.
James Darnell Bowers Hi, I am a Bowers researcher and have several cousins that we exchange information with. We have James Darnell Bowers married to Martha A Lovelady but with different dates. The dates on the headstone of Marths A Oneal match with the date of their daughter Martha A Bowers who we have married to John Oneal. I hope you can help us with this. Hope to hear from you soon.

Towry Recently able to clarify our ggg gma correct name. We originally had Carrie Elizabeth Towerly and it was Margaret Towery m to Elias Henderson Shults (Z). I was able to fine a tree going back to John Towry and Mary (Polly) Martin. I was intrigued to see your surname is Towry. I would love to see how we might be cousins and if you know any stories about the family. Thanks so much. Jolene Williams
