I am just beginning to search for my husband's mother's family (Gower). Joseph Gower (1883-1932) married Edna Adele Hall (1890-1947)m.1919 Children:Edna (1920-1989), Bertha (1922-1995), and William (1926- )
Information I have on Joseph's parents: Father:David Gower (born in South Wales - 1840) Mother:Bridget Agnes Lyons Children: Joseph (1883-1937), Skeletor (1887), Vera (1890), David (1892), Angus (1894), Anna (1896), Helen (1897), Madlean (1899), Thomas (1900)
The family lived in Philadelphia - Joseph was hit by a taxi cab in the 30's.After his death, Mrs. Gower stayed in Philadelphia - lived with her sister and the children. My husband's uncle (William) doesn't recall his grandparents names - The family broke all ties with his parents because the Gowers were Catholic and Joseph married a non-Catholic. Does any of this sound familiar to anyone?I would be interested in any information anyone has on David Gower or Bridget Lyons or any of Joseph's siblings. Thanks.
