I was told that, I had brothers, and the my daddy, whom I don't know was from Georgia, and part Indian, maybe he was in the service.That's about all I know, I have a birth cert, but my fathers name is not on it, any help would be greatly appreciated. I was born Lynn Ann Dowdy, Thanks, hope to hear from you soon.

I'm working on my Dowdy family. We have alot of john Dowdy's but heres one that may help.

Millie Jane Dowdy B: 29 Nov 1852; D: 11 Dec 1932
daughter of John Dowdy (B: 1834; D:1885) and Mary (Linder)
(B:1839 in TN; D:1887 in MO {no sure of this})

siblings: Mary Kezira, Melvina Carolina "Mell", John Thmpson, Joseph william "Joe", Andrew Jackson "Andy",
Albert Thomas (my grandfather), S. Francis and James Allen "Jim".

I'm trying to contact a Jim (Cherokee) Dowdy to the above John Dowdy. He lived from 1771 to 1885, lived in Kentucky and died in MO at the age of 114 years. Any help would be great.

I know Frances Dowdy and Joseph Wilson married 4 Aug 1833 in Williamson Co. TN. You give a death date of 1848 for both and three children. Where did they die and where are the children. Thank you.

The descendant's chart in your message shows Frances Dowdy, dau of John Dowdy SR, and wife of Joseph Wilson, as having died in 1848. This is not correct. Frances Dowdy Wilson was still alive in 1850, on the Henderson co TN census. She was apparently a widow, with children of Agnes 15, Joseph W. 15, and David R. 11. Also in the household with her was a Julietta Wilson age 77, b: VA.

I believe it was her husband, Joseph Wilson, who died in 1848.

Ooops! Forgot to tell you that Millie's middle name is not Jane - it's Josephine, and she is the daughter of Amos Dowdy and Rebecca Elliott.

I have a John Dowdy, b 1834 in Mayfield, Graves KY; d 1885in Mountain View,Howell MO; m 1852 to Mary Linder and they had a daughter Millie Jean Dowdy b 1852. Could this be the same family or related? Other children were Melvina Carlina, Mary Kezina, John Thompson, Joseph William, Andrew Jackson, Albert Thomas (my grandfather), S Francis, & James Allen.

Please let me know if any of these are in your family search.

I'm also researching the Dowdy's.
Amos Dowdy and Rebecca Dowdy were my gggg-grandparets. Millie Jane Dowdy and George W. Bowman were my ggg-grandparents. I've always heard Millie's middle name was Jane but others say different. I would very much like to hear from you Darlene.
