I am researching my family tree and I am at a stand still when it comes to finding anything pertaining to my gg grand father.His name was Edward/Edmond Dowell, b. April 1850, NC. He married my gg grand mother, Sarah (Sallie) Whittington-Dowell in 1873. Together they had 11 children: Robert Patterson Dowell, William Riley Dowell, Joseph Oliver Dowell, Etta Florence Dowell-Edwards, Maggie E Dowell, Sarah (Sallie) L Dowell, Julia Dowell-Earnest, James Edward Dowell, Fredrick Douglas Dowell, Grace A Dowell-Lundy and Lillian Dowell. All of the children were born in North Carolina.Edward/Edmond, Sarah Whittington-Dowell, Fredrick and Grace moved to Bristol, Virginia.Sarah died there, I'm not sure about the others.
If anyone have any information on Edward/Edmond, I would really appreciate your help.I do know that he had at least one sibling because my mother was able to find his niece Ruby Dowell b. Nov 2, 1902 in Wilkesboro, NC.Thank you again.
