Andrew and his parents had been owned by Walter Bowles.
Margaret's maiden name was Keeble. They also had daughters Aliza, Amanda, who married
Peter Anderson, and Mary. Mary was found in Springfield, IL with Amanda in 1910. Chris,
over the years worked for the McMenemy family and Gregory Hayden. I have no information
on Patrick, John or Phillip.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
