I'm sure there's a strong connection. I am tracking William S. Rowbotham who had a brother Edward Rowbothoma who was married to Melinda Badjeros. William settled in Canada and Edward in Michigan. There's quite a number of Rowbothams in the thumb area of Michigan who I'm sure are descended from Edward. I don't have any information of Melinda, her parents or Edwards Children, our focus has not been in that direction since following Williams offspring is a job in its own right. Write me at my email address, maybe we can find more information.
