My great grandfather Schuyler Hiram Major Stowe was born in about 1879 (died in Blenheim, ON in 1957) in Bowmanville to a Margaret Gilmore who was born in 1862. She came to Blenheim, Kent County, Ontario when Schuyler was young, claiming that her husband (John Stowe) had died an alcohol related death. She also claimed that Schuyler's birth records were destroyed in a fire in Bowmanville, Ontario. Schuyler never knew for sure when he was born.
I have been unable to find out anything about Schuyler's family. If there is anyone out there who knows of a Margaret Gilmore born in 1862 (died in 1933) who married a John Stowe, I would love to hear from you.
Schuyler married Elizabeth Summerfield (1891-1966) on December 9th, 1907. They had one son John Henry Stowe born 1909 (died 1980). John Henry married Florence Walker (1910-1991) in 1928.
