Well, there is a problem isn't there? I also had Rachel as a daughter of William (b)1735 and Judah Surey Dowell (m) 1785. Of course that can't be right as Rachel was married to George Baber on 30 May 1789 in Albamarle Co VA.
There were six children born to Wm & Judah between 1790 & 1800. William also had a second wife/Judith Breedlove, but do not have any children by her.
Let's go back one generation to John (b)1695)& Mary Major Dowell (b)1711: Wm (b)1735, Mary (b)1737, Thomas (b)1737/38, Judah John (John) (b)1740, Sarah (b)1741, Mildred (b)1742, Richard (b) 1743, Susannah (Sukey) (b)1744, and Ambrose (b)1750.
I know these Dowell Families are very mixed up. Was just down in Salt Lake and found the land information for John Dowell (b) 1695 and it doesn't coincide with the story of King George III giving 3,000 acres to a John Dowell in Virginia. It's a mess that probably should be started again from your (and my) most current relative and proven each step. Some day..... Deanna
