Re: R.S. Fowler/Mary Knight
Wow, that's great.As a matter of fact I'm in Missoula also.
I looked through my envelope of obituaries and found Matthew M. Fowler,I hadn't been able to place him.The obit says he's buried in Victor.I've searched the records of the Victor cemetery and didn't find a Matthew M. although not far from Zella I found a Madison M. Fowler.I'm wondering if Matthew's middle name was Madison.
Also, I pulled out my Montana 1880 cenus and there is George listed as well being 14 yrs old when the census was taken.
I have five generations buried in the Victor cemetery, including my mother, grandparents, g-grandparents, gg-grandparents and ggg-grandparents.
Do you know anything about the mother of George, Matthew and Laura?Was her name Mary Brown (possibly Barron)were they married Dec 5, 1853?I've started looking and this is what I came up with although I have no confirmation.
Thanks for the feedback- let me know if you have any questions. -your cousin, Susie
