My name is Sharon Rowsell Warner. My grandfather was James Albert Rowsell, the eldest som of William Rowsell and Grace Lye. My grandfather was born in Richmond. I believe he was the brother of the Walter Rowsell you are searching as I used to hear my dad talk about Uncle Walt. I have some information on the family. If you can tell me what you want to know specifically, I would be glad to tell you what I know. I do know that Walter and James Albert were the sons of William Douglas Rowsell and Grace Lye. William came from Crewkerne England with his 1st wife, Mercy Webber and she died shortly after they arrived in Utah. They had a daughter, Rosina, who had a lot of records. William's parents were Douglas Rowsell and Ann Cleal of Crewkerne. Douglas was born sometime between 1791 and 1801 and Ann was born 1n 1808, the daughter of John Cleal and Elizabeth Lacey
Ann died in 1855 and Douglas died Oct.-Dec. 1880. They were married in 1828 at St. Bartholomews Parish,Church of England. William was one of the younger ones and his mother died when he was only 11. He had to go to work in a textile factory to provide his own food as Douglas was in prison at the time. Please write back if you want any more information. Sharon Rowsell Warner
