Reuben Hickman Dowell
I am wondering if this is the same Reuben H Dowell that was in the Missouri 2nd Cavalry, CSA?

George Hickman Dowell
George was the son of George Weir Dowell and Lizzie B. Madden. George married Mollie Mae Simon, my ancestor. My records show that George Weir Dowell was a son of Reuben Hickman Dowell and Emily Jane Harris Dowell.

RE: Janette Yates Whitehead
Janette (Nettie) Yates Whitehead is my great grandmother on my mother's side of the house.
I wouldn't mind linking Janette to her mother if I can figure out how to do it. I'll give it a shot. Thanks for the link.

George Hickman Dowell
I'm related to George Hickman Dowell as he married my ancestor Mollie Mae Simon. I'm interested in any photos, info, etc that you or other Dowell people may have to "fill in some holes". I have no photos of Mollie. Her father, John Simon, was the brother to my great grandfather.

Jeduthan and Letutia Hopkins
Greetings, R.J.,

I very frequently miss the notes that people have posted for me on the Find-A-Grave site, since my life is very busy and I don't find the time to log-on often. However, I'm glad to read that you came across the Hopkins memorials that I created.
FYI: The wonderful old book by Timothy Hopkins, entitled: "John Hopkins of Cambridge, Massachusetts, 1634, and some of his descendants," is accessible via (link for search engine, attached below). Finding specific people in the book is a bit of a laborious process; however, the results are worthwhile. I posted two pages from the above-referenced book on the Hopkins memorials, that pertain to Jeduthan and Letutia Hopkins.
Thanks, once again, for your kind words. I hope your grandmother enjoyed the memorials.
Peace and blessings,
Cathy Porter-Maynard

Dowell family history
If you are interested I have some Dowell family history that was given to my mother in 2001. She received it from a lady in Independence whose mother was Nancy Bell Dowell Stroud, a daughter of Reuben and Emily. Contact me at and I will be glad to scan in this information and send it to you.

RE: Edward Ball photo
Hi R.J.,
Sorry about not getting your email with my other address. My husband sometimes tosses things if he doesn't recognize a name.
Yes, I am related to Edward Ball and Josephine White Ball. Their daughter, Florence Rosalia Ball was married to Leonard Franklin Morehead and that makes them my great grandparents. One of their daughters, Mary Adeline Morehead married George Ellison and they were my wonderful grandparents! I would love to have copies of any photos you are willing to share. I don't have hardly any photos. I think I only have 2 or 3 of my grandparents, and none of anyone else.
Please reply to the following email address: It is case sensitive so be sure to use all lower case letters. I'll tell my husband not to delete anything from R. J. Dowell.
Thank you so much for emailing me and I'm looking forward to hearing from you very soon.
