In Reply to: West Virginia Nellie Rowe by Fredric Martin of 5911

I believe this is Penelope with her father & mother, indexed as "Row"

1850 Harpers Ferry, Jefferson, VA

John M Row 48 VA
Mary E 23 VA
Charles C 10
PENELOPE A 7
Robert E 5
William 35
Harrietta Monroe 23

Suspect that William is a brother.....perhaps some research on him and on Charles might turn up something. I couldn't find a marriage for John so luck with a maiden name for Mary.

Mary is widowed with the children you mention in 1860 Bolivar, Jefferson. If you go to findagrave.com there is a John Rowe buried at Fairview Lutheran Cemetery in Bolivar with a picture of the stone. The birth year doesn't quite match but the death year of 1858 would fit since James was b about 1857 & Mary is widowed by 1860.

Hope this helps a bit :) Vicky in AZ
