RE: Mary Gowan

My mother personally knew Sadie, who was her aunt, her husband, David, and the two daughters. She visited them in CA several times. That part is from her oral notes.

The Canada and wagon-train part is from some pages in a Centennial book (or something similar) from the Marcus Historical Society. Don't have the pages anymore, but if you'd contact Sherree Ogren (sp?) 712-376-4465, I'm sure she could photocopy and send you the material. I remember that there were whole sections on the Barr and Ward families. I'm sure you'd find some info on your people too. :)

I'm delighted to have both Gabe and Margaret now.
Thanks for all your help. God bless,

Gabriel and Margaret Ward Barr
If you wouldn't mind, could you please transfer Gabriel Barr and Margaret Ward Barr to me. I'd like to eventually transfer them to my brother or to my niece. Thank you and God bless for all your work.

We received the links from another contributor and so do not know exactly where the information came from. Sorry we could not be of any additional assistance.

RE: Thank you
It was no real problem Jim for I knew where it was right away and I went to decorate graves yesterday and took the photo. She was one of the wives of my Aunt Rose's husband, Frank, and her stone sits beside his. I was happy to help.
