Several questions for you: 1. There was a Dell DowDell that had written a letter to my grandfather William Chester Dowdle in the mid to late 1960's. Have several letters that he wrote to him.Would you by chance be kin to him?This person lived in Rowland Heights, Calif.
2. Is this James you mention be the James b. 1746 in Chester Co., PA who married Prudence Johnson and they lived in GA? Brother to Robert Sr and Allen?If so then this is a different branch of the Dowdle family near as I can see.
3. Wondering how you fit into the Dowdle family with your name spelled DowDell.Have seen it as Dowdell but not with a capitol D.
Would love to share info on this James but this is what I found while searching for my family.Would be happy to help out any way I can.Christy
