I would be very interested in the California connection of your ancestor. Do you have any more names and places in California. James E. Rowe was my husband's gggrandfather who lived in Sutter Creek, CA and Sacramento. He and his wife are buried in Sacramento, CA.

Jean -- Yes, I have information about William Henry Rowe and his descendents. I hope to hear from a lady in San Diego when she gets home from vacation about his(Wm. Henry's) ancestors. She appears to have more information than I've ever had. If you'd like, I can send you a gedcom file of the information I have on Wm. Henry Rowe. Let me know.

I live in the UK and am presently researching my ROWE/ROE ancestors. My GG Grandfather George ROWE was born in Portsmouth, Hampshire in 1827, his father was Joseph ROWE. Joseph ROWE was originally from Cornwall, so perhaps there is a Plymouth connection. My G Grandfather was born Henry Edward ROWE, but by the time he married his surname had changed to ROE. William&Henry are common family names in my line. If I can be of any help let me know. I will be off line until July 28th as I am on vacation.

My William Henry Sargent was born 25 Nov 1861 in England. I have no information of any brothers or sisters.I have no information of his parents and where he came from. I can assume that he may have gone to Canada first due to his first child being buried in Ontario Canada. And I think his wifes family live in that area. They could have met there. His death certificate lists his father as John Rowe born in England. No mothers name was known according to the provider of the information. Some US census records indicate like the 1900 US census in Findlay, Ohio that he came into the US in 1891 and had lived here for 9 years. He married Eliza anne Sackett br. 8 aug 1867 in New York and I estimate a marriage of 1887 in Ohio perhaps or Canada.I have no date. Not sure as their first son was born in Ohio april 1888 but died a year later and is buried in Kingston, Frontenac County, Oniario. Canada , 2nd child William Henry Rowe Jr. brn 1889 in Ohio die 1891 in Findlay Hancock, Ohio and 3rd son Ernie Russel Rowe born 9 April 1892 in Ohio and died 8 Jan 1927 in Holbrook, Oregon. Ernie is my Father William Raymond Rowes father. I would love to find his family. But it has been a search I couldn't afford years ago, but with all the computer info I am trying again to find out more. I would love anything that you might have if these dates line up with any info you have. william Henry rowe died 22 Nov 1917 in Portland, Oregon. this is where I grew up. As did my father and his sister. My brother Brian Rowe is the last of our line as he had no children. Well have a great vacation. Hope to hear from you when you get back.
Sincerely,
Beverley A. Rowe-Service
I live in Goldendale, Washington USA East of the Cascades

Beverly -- Thanks for your details, but it appears that we're from different branches of the Rowe family! My Wm. Henry Rowe came from England to the gold fields of CA in 1849-50, married there, moved to Marysville CA and then to Watsonville, CA, where he died in 1893.

Surnames: Rowe, Roe, chic, Chick
we are looking for information on my GGF who's birth name was Walter Rowe, He was adopted at birth to the Chick (chic) family in england in early 1800's. We are unsure if His mother's maiden name was rowe or if rowe was his fathers name, His mother and father had my GGF out of wedlock and this is why the child was adopted. His mother was rumoured to have been a servant (lady in waiting) to the queen. any information would be helpful. My GGF changed his name from chick back to rowe when he came to canada when he was 15, he jumped ship in the port of Saint John New Brunswick. no immigration records exist that we are aware of. Walter had several children, kenneth , William(billy), Camilla all born in New Brunswick in mid 1800's. A family in England (perhaps Bristol) contacted our family by letter several years ago trying to contact the family of walter rowe but my grandfather (kenneth) did not respond. Any information would be greatfull.

Sorry, but my ggrandfather doesn't seem to be related to your line. My Wm. Henry Rowe was from Plymouth, Devon, England; his father was Thomas Rowe, and the family was in the shipping business (don't know exactly which branch of shipping). Wm. Henry came to California in 1850 and went to the gold fields.

I would be very interested in getting in contact with you. My name is Michelle Drew but my Maiden Name is Rowe. I live in Hamilton, Ontario Canada now but I was born in Oshawa, Ontario Canada. My Grandfather was William Henry Rowe. My Uncle was Walter Rowe and yes he was adopted. I don't know much about Walter because I only saw him a few times when I was very young. My Parents are Gerald William Rowe and Myra Faith White (Nee Rowe, Nee Yandt). I do know that my Grandfather came from England and he was in both the Wars. I remember when I was a kid and My Grandfather would talk about his War Years with me. I would love to hear him tell me his stories about the War. I do know he was married twice. He had a Daughter before he came to Canada and her name was Elizabeth. I never met her and neither did my Parents as I recall because I asked my Father once about her and he knows about her but he really didn't get into a lengthy conversation with me about her. I don't believe she is living anymore. I have pictures of my Grandparents. My Grandfather married again to My Grandmother Florence Mary Rowe (Nee Robinson). They only had one biological child which was my Father Gerald William Rowe. They then adopted two more children a boy and a girl named Walter and Lily. I do know that Walter and Lily were biological brother and sister. I do know that Walter lived in New Brunswick, Canada until his death. I do know that Lily is still alive living in Coburg, Ontario Canada at the present time. I do not speak with her. For the reason that I grew up in Foster Homes and Group Homes from the time I was 6 yrs old to 17 yrs old when I married an amazing man that I am still married to, to this day at present. I have only met a few of my Relatives during the Years and I have tried my hardest to find out who I am related to. I have met some Aunts, Uncles and Cousins on my Father's side.

But it would be very interesting to talk to you about this because I would love to know more about My Family and Ancestors.

My Grandparents are my Whole Life. I love them more then anything in this Whole Entire World. They are both in Heaven now but one day I will see them again and I will give them the biggest hug and kiss ever. I miss them both terribly. There is so much I want to say to them. I talk to them in my Prayers but I truly miss them so very much. They really are the most important people in my life that keeps me going every day. I know they are looking down on me and keeping me safe. I feel them every day of my life. I love them so very much...
