Jim, I'm a Towe from Buncombe Co. NC but husband's family are from Yancey Co. NC. Just recently found info on GGG grandfather. William Pinkney Towe m. Elizabeth Harper 4 children: Clausal Towe b.abt. 1824 d. 1847 * Edna Ludith Towe Carrie Elma Towe b.1894 d.1985 Mary Ruth Towe *My line m. Rachel Austin Arrowood 1 child Dr. William C. Towe m. Elizabeth Jane Matilda Edney had 13 children. Of these Towe's one for some reason dropped the "E" from his name. Do you have any connections to these names? Thanks for any info. Charlene in Fl.
