please help if anyone can give me some information on my great grand father my whole family would be very greatful.
Given Name: James Gowdy
Brith Place: Hoisington KS
Born: Friday Feb.13 1903
He was given to Howells in Paxtonville PA to raise because his birth parents didn't have enough money to raise him when they came east for some reason. They later tried to get him back from the Howell's but didn't have enough money to pay for all of the cloths they had bought him. So he had to stay with the Howell's and his birth parents went back out west some where. He later took on the Howell name but continued to use Gowdy as his middle name. I have a picture of his birth mother but no first name to go by. Would really love to reasearch my back round but need help. If anyone has heard of this story and might know somtething please contact me at my e-mail address. Would love to know the rest of my family.
