In Reply to: Mary Vassar m. John B. Fowler, TN by nancy mckee of 243

My 3rd Great Grandparents were John Brown Fowler and Mary Vasser. My GG Grandfather was Peter Bryant Fowler,m.Parthenia Abernathy. My Great Grandfather Silas Presley from Tupelo MS, Grandfather Dr. John Bryant Fowler. We are of the same family. Sylvester was an Uncle of mine, so we are cousins...I grew up in OK, and wondered what my Grandfather was doing here before statehood. Was he Native American? YES! We are of the same family! I was told we were related to the Vassar Family but never knew how...I assume you are descended thru Sylvester. I have no knowledge of anyone earlier than John Brown Fowler. I have an 1860 census showing children of Bryant and Parthenia. Mendoza was a daughter. In 1850 census they are living in Giles Co. TN, and oldest daughter is named Mary V.,and son was Sylvester. My ancestor Silas Presley is a younger brother of Sylvester. Please reply.
