My 3rd great grandfather was George w Rex who married Mary E Dobbins in Rowan County,NC That is all I really know. I know he had a son John Rex who married Esther Locke and their daughter Josephine Rex married Rowan Howard. Their Son John Dobbins Howard Married Claudia Gardner. Their daughter Mary Elizabeth Howard was my mother. I can't find his parents or where he was born or even when he died. I would just really love to have a place to start. I have alot of information on the Howards way back to England. any and all help would be so greatly appreciated.
