You won't believe it but I have been following your postings and the SL GenWeb site with great interest. AP Rowlands had a half brother James Henry Rowlands born in Colombo in 1867.Now AP's mother was Charlotte Don, but JH's mother is a mystery and I am having trouble finding her. Of course the father of these two guys was Richard William Rowlands. Have you any pointers as to how I can proceed in finding her. All I know is that she was a Burgher lady called Van Bracken; Van Dracken;Van Straaten, I don't really know.
