I'm helping another person on this... so don't have much or know how much is true or false.. Also, not related...
Would like to know where(what cemetery) he (Charles) is buried... so far all I know is its in Phoenixville PA. Also believe the Chester countyPA Historical society has some info (clippings)
I believe GD Carrow is Goldsmith Day Carrow..a fellow researcher sent me some info from pa cenus
1880 census of the U.S. and found the following: Phoenixville, chester county, Goldsmith D. Carrow age 56, born Maryland, wife Eliza J. Carrow age 57 born MD, Thomas E.B.Carrow, son, age 32 born Pa, Margret B. Carrow, daughter age 25, born South America, Mary A.L.Carrow daughter age 23, born South America, Caroline P. Carrow daughter age 16 born Pa.
Also found him in 1870 Philadelphia census(children listed above not there but GD and William and others are..... notes at work..
In doing some additional research on Goldsmith D. Carrow I found the marriage in Dorchester Co. Maryland to Elizabeth Jane Thompson March 9, 1847.I also found in the 1850 census, Kent county, Dover Delaware Goldsmith D.
Carrow age 26, Clergyman! with wife Eliza age 26.
Since Goldsmith was a clergyman, I would guess that he must have been associated with a church in the phoenixville area and the chester county historical society should be able to help you with that in addition to their cemetary records.
Also, someone on this board had posted the following link to newspaper on Son Charles M... see Barbara's post listed below...1879 CARROW news online... http://theoldentimes.com/fatallttr.htmlhttp://theoldentimes.com/fatallttr.html I had posted reply with a different story I had found in another publication
I would suggest reading the 1860 census of chester county to see any Carrow's. This would possibly prove the parents of your Charles Marim Carrow. The historical society of chester county in West Chester, Pa also has newspaper clippings of the 1800s which would be beneficial. Also, the chester county archives in West Chester, Pa has all the wills and perhaps Charles is mentioned in them.
Also Ancestry.com has a Washington DC directory and he-DC Carrow is listed as of 1891.Believe his dates are 1823-1894.Found his dates while searching for publications he had written...about 5 articles.
Would like to know more...like did any of his siblings marry and where can I look for additional information..
