When Bertha A Webb was born Feb 1, 1886 in Lawrence Township, Lawrence County, Ohio to Guy, and Elizabeth "Bessie" Brown. Guy likely lived on or near his father's land, Aden Webb. This land was also next to Miles Rowe's land, the father of William E Rowe. This is likely how they knew one another to later marry. She had one daughter with Manuel Bowman, out of wedlock. She then married William Edward Rowe, who raised her daughter, Ruth Bowman and then they had four children together, 2 daughters and 2 sons. One son, Bubby, died in WWII. Ruth died young, as well. The 3 remaining children moved out west for most of their lives. She died young on March 6, 1919, in Lawrence, Ohio, at the age of 33, and was buried in Ironton, Ohio at Sugar Creek Cemetery. William was later buried beside her, as was his 2nd wife, Mae Sanders.

Mae used to take care of Bertha's grave.

Son: Alvin Emerson Rowe 1913-1975
