I looking for information on George W. Covert (b. 1825 d. 1904) and Margaret McDowell of Kirtland, OH. They apparently had 13 children—Carlton, Ellen C., Josephine, Sabra, Mary L., Gertrude, Harriet, Ester, George Jr., David M., Irene A., Fred G., and Collins.
I am unsure how I am related, but it must be through the McDowell line. My assumption is that Margaret was a sister of my G-Great Grandfather, William S. McDowell. They had two other siblings that I know of, Hannah and Tom.I found some of their pictures in my grandmother's things (she was a McDowell), and have posted them here. http://www.flickr.com/photos/lancepeeler/tags/covert/http://www.flickr.com/photos/lancepeeler/tags/covert/
Fred G. Covert, David M. Covert, and George Covert, Jr., were identified on the back of their respective photos. One other boy looks like he might be a brother (perhaps Collins).
Any help would be appreciated! And, feel free to download the Covert pictures as you wish.
