I can't believe I have just now seen this posting!
I have been wroking on this line as well.We are definitely cousins.My line comes from Joel Wells Stowe, Sr. (1807), Joel Wells Stowe, Jr. (1850), James Edgar Stowe (1880), Vera Belle Stowe Pyle (1912) and me (1937).
The only data I have on your William Thomas Stowe (1898-1967)is that he married Bertha Bates.
Sarah Stowe Hoffius, Springdale AR recently sent me a copy of the marriage license for JW Stowe, Sr.Do you have a copy of that?
Looking at information from VA, I notice that there are a lot of Wells families that evidently lived near the Stowe families.I'm thinking that his mother may have been a Wells. Any thoughts?
I joined the Sons of the Republic of Texas a couple of years ago using JW Stowe, Sr, as my ancestor.I was the first to document JW Stowe as an early settler with the SRT.
