My grand father Lewis Nowlan was born in Mountpelier, Vermont, Washington County March 31, 1850. Married Kathrine L McGoon April 28, 1903 in Brown County Illinois. Two sons Lewis and Robert Nowlan. He also married Nellie Dunn on June 05, 1877 in Greene County Illinois. One daughter Katie Clare Nowlan. He also married Ella Cullinan on May 14, 1882 in Brown County Illinois. Lewis died January 14, 1923 and was buried at Bevier, Mo, Macon County. During his life he worked for a railroad and I believe that he was the station master in Quincy Illinois for that railroad. I also believe that his father, James, was born in Ireland around 1808 and died at Mt Sterling Illinois about 1861. My gr grandfather James was married to Katherine Donahoe, also born in Ireland about 1826. She died at Nt. Sterling about 1913.
