  1. I just so happened to see the name Rosemary Anne Denson on your Blog. I hope that I’m not inconveniencing anyone but I would like to contact them. My name is Matthew Stowe I am 45 years old.My GrGrGr Grandfathers name was James Ferguson Dowdell and my fathers name was Noel Read Stowe. He was Rosie Hamilton Read Stowe’s grandson and grew up in her home. Rosie Hamilton Read Stowe was the granddaughter to James Ferguson Dowdell. My Dad passed away around the time you’re blog came out. I have been trying to locate any photos and information on the Dowdells, Reads , or Stowe’s. I have some information on James Ferguson Dowdell but not much on Sarah Hamilton Render Dowdell or her daughter Sara Bettie Dowdell. I would be great if you could share any photos or information about them.

  2. My grandmother was Annie Love Dowdell. Her father and mother were James Render Dowdell and Ella Mae Ware. Her grandfather was Jonathan Ware. I don’t know his wife’s name, but I have a photo of her and Jonathan. I don’t know where my grandmother received the “Love” name.

    My father was Render Dowdell Denson, whose mother was Annie Love Dowdell. I was fortunate to have known her. My name is Rosemary Anne Denson and was born in 1944. My brother is Render Dowdell Denson, Jr. (1943). My sister is Jennifer Elizabeth Denson (1950)..

    I just happened upon this website through Google. I am excited to discover this and look forward to reading this blog or website, whatever it is called. Thank you.
