My name is Debby and I grew up listening to stories my grandmother (Agnes) told about her family King/Rowan. Unfortuantely, while she was alive I didn't write down all she told me. Now I am on a quest to find out more about my ancestors. If you have any information you would like to share...Photos and stories would be greatly appreciated.
I have pictures of my paternal great grandmother and one of my paternal great-great grandmother. I’m not sure who the picture below is of. I am thinking it is one of these 2 women but need your help. I have no photographer information. Do you see a resemblance to either of the 2 women I can identify below?
I know that the picture on the left is a picture of my paternal great-grandmother Carrie Terry Warner (see blog posts about Carrie’s letters). I know that the picture was taken most likely in the late 1870s or early 1880’s in NYC because the photographer was Rockwood of Union Square N. Y. I have been able to verify that he who worked in NYC at that time. Carrie lived about 65 miles East of New York City but attended a Normal School in Trenton, N.J. from 1879-1881. She made the trip from Peconic, N. Y. to Trenton going by boat, train, carriage and ferry.
The picture of the woman on the right is of my paternal great-great grandmother Sarah Hughes Rowan (see blog post Rowan and Hughes Family). Sarah was born, raised, married and lived in New York City. She died in 1885.
Would love to hear your thoughts and opinion and any other information you’d like to share.
