Im making note of any Charles in Virginia that could be the brother of my grgrandfather Herbert Graham Rowe of Richmond around 1865-1910. I know my Grgrgrandfathers name was John L and that he mar. Hannah Fairlamb in Richmond 1850. My father only remembered that he (HGR) may have had a brother named Charles. HGR was in the funeral home and furniture making biz.I have no Idea were John L came from only that he was dead by the time HGR and my grgrgram I.Virginia Stainback mar in 1895. Bev

Hello, My great-grandfather Charles was born in 1829 in Ohio where in Ohio I have no idea. But his family moved to Pike Co. Ky after that for they were in the 1830 census. But I will look for his name in any of the census I have and she if there is a connection. My ggrandfathers dad was Jacob and he was born in VA. If there is anything else you have you can always write me at my e-mail address And I will look and see if there is anything I can help you with. Melissa

Thank you for the information but my Charlie was born in 1829. That would be my great-grandfather. He had a daugter named Sarah. Now Sarah had two brothers one named Walter who was born in 1888. Did your Charles have a middle name. But Sarah was born in 1886. And they had a sister Charlotte (Lottie) who was born in 1890. But I believe they were all born in Dickenson County VA. Who was the father of this brother and sister if you don't mind my asking. But if there is anything you might think I could use or you could use please write me back. Melissa

My ggrandfather was Charles E. Rowe, he lived in Avoca, Iowa in 1900's. He was born approximately 1875. Married: 1st time to Myrtle McIntosh, 2nd time to Myrtle Pendroy. Both of these marriages were in Pottowattmee Co. Iowa. I would like any information on this family. (Charles father's name was James, born in Mass.)

I can only tell you that Hanah died in 1913. Perhaps you could send for her death certificate and then you would have a date of death and you could then look for an obituary. Just a suggestion. If you ever find anything I would love to know who their descendents were.

Re: Fairlamb Rowes from Richmond Va.

Classification: Query
Surnames: Rowe ,Fairlamb,Allen
I flew u to Va. in April and spent three days at the LVA-wish I had three weeks-. I found John and Hanna in 1850 living with her mother, widowed Louisa Fairlamb along with Hannahs sis and bro. Her sister married Wm. Redford the next year.
Then I found their marraige info, which I cant believe I didnt have time to get a copy of. She listed as ward of Ralph Allen (her mom was an Allen). No info on his family This may have just been abstracted. I find them I think 1860, and he is indeed working at the cemetery, which I expected to find since that is what my grgrandfather and grandfather did-owned Funeral home and cemetery in NC.
John Rowe evidentlly died after 1870. On the 1889 Richmond directory, There are several Rowe sons listed in the home with Hannah, includeing my grgrandad. Several work for Rowe Bro.s. A few at the flower shop-so it was either a flower store or a funeral home perhaps. It was on Broad where a gas station now sits, the only block with the buildings gone-of course. Of the Boys listed I dont know if they are all sons, grandsons, nephews or what.
I did not find anything on her death, but there were some gaps in what they had. I copied some mortallity schaedules I found for Glou county for 1880 it as Lucy, Benjamin, Frances A.77y.(Which may be the same as one in her home, Hannas father and brother were Francis- this is spelled Frances But--) Sterling 73 y.,Edward H Sr.68Achelles W. 13y. son of Achilles and Elizabeth, and a baby ch of EB and Missouri R.
Anyway I still need to organize my stuff and I will let you know what I find>>Thanks Bev,
