This past summer while searching my Samis roots tromping around cemetaries around Brighton, Ontario my cousins and I came across another possible family connection.In the Carmen Cemetary,north of Brighton, Ontario we found a tombstone with the following inscriptions on it.
William Lowe Born October 17,1832 Died March 5, 1901
Sarah VanSicklen wife of W.H. Lowe Born July 28, 1837 Died March 31, 1925
This tombstone was directly across from my great grandparents tombstone.Their names were George Ira Samis and his wife Mary Elizabeth Lowe. Mary Elizabeth Lowe was born in 1876 and died in 1929. So it is possible that Sarah VanSicklen could be her mother. I know I could be drawing conclusions from this but my great grandmother,Mary Lowe, had a brother Bill (perhaps he was named after this William H. Lowe (wife of Sarah VanSicklen).I am wondering if anyone can tell me if Mary Elizabeth Lowe's mother was indeed Sarah VanSicklen?There is nobody left in the family old enough to confirm this.My Grandmother Samis married into the family in 1929 the year that Mary died and was unable to confirm for me that her mother-in-law's mother's maiden name was VanSicklen.
Can anyone help me?I am new at this stuff.Thank you.
