Re: Arthur Bennajah Rowley
I believe we are both searching for the same person. My grandfather was Arthur Bennagie Rowley. We likely have his middle name spelled wrong. His mother was Susan Ann Hyatt. Arthur was born April 18, 1895 in Cheyenne County, Kansas. He had a brother, Jesse Jacob Rowley who was born Sept 8, 1898 also in Cheyenne County, Kansas. Arthur came to Canada and married Agnes Alice Smalley in the summer of 1923, I don't know the date as Grandma never quite gave up that information. Arthur and Agnes had 3 sons, Lester Thomas,Donald (we always thought his middle name was Jesse until he needed his birth certificate and discovered that he was registered with no middle name) and Robert Arthur. When the boys were quite young, I believe my dad Lester was only about 4, Arthur left home one day and did not return. Grandma kept contact with his brother Jesse who lived in Michigan but none of us have ever known what became of Arthur although we have some rumours but nothing that was every confirmed. I would love to know what became of him.
The person you mention was likely my brother, Kevin Rowley.
