Alvena Blaise Beverage wrote "Alfred Deoran Stowell is my great Grandfather, his son Alfred Cornelius Stowell is my Grandfather.
Alfred Deoran Stowell married Mary Annie Glass.
My mother's name was Mary Alverna Stowell. Her brother, Alfred Jason Stowell is my uncle. He and his wife and children would come to visit for Family Reunions in New Mexico from Texas and when we were real small he would hold us on his lap and sing "The Old Rugged Cross" etc. We loved him special. Jennifer Stowell's father is my cousin! (Ellery, Nancy, Steve and John.)
My mother always spoke very highly of her grandfather (Alfred Deoran) and held him in the highest regards. I remember him visiting from Arizona when I was a very young child before he died in 1963.
I am wanting to know about Alfred Deoran's siblings, and his mother and father. My mother told me he had a brother named Bert Stowell. And now I know that he also had at least one sister. Alfred Cornelius Stowell married my grandmother Harriett Caroline Hendrix. My Grandmother was very sweet to me and I am also curious to know her ancestry. Her mother's name was Hattie Butler and I think her father's name was Jason Hendrix. They lived in Elida also. (I think) "
