My great grandmother Jeanette Rowe was born to William and Harriet Young in Robbin's Cove, Twillingate, Newfoundland. She had two children with a man named William Rowe. I do not know if she was married to him as I have not been able to find a marriage date.
Shortly after the birth of my grandfather in 1899 she moved to Fall River, Massachusetts in the U.S. leaving her first child Clara, in the care of family members. When Clara was 16 years of age she also came to the states to work as a servant for the Vanderbuilts of Rhode Island.
My grandfather William Rowe (jr)grew up in Fall River and his mother eventually married J. Reilly. Once when I was much younger I asked him about his family and he was not forth coming with any information. I think he told me that his father died when he was 12 yrs old. That leaves the question, why did he not come to the US with my grandfather? What happened to his father? My grandfather was born in Nova Scotia, not by design but because his mother Jeanette was visiting others at the time. I would really like to know what happened to my great grandfather, William Rowe. Where did he come from? Who were his parents? and mostly what happened to him? I would like to make the puzzle pieces fit together.
If anyone might know of this family I would love to hear from you. I have posted more detailed information about Jeanette on the Surname post under William and Harriet Young.
Thanks
