I am looking for any information on Thomas ROBIE/ROBY that died somewhere in WI about 1877 at the age of 100. His first wife was Sarah Kelly and she died 1831 in Perry Co., OH and they had 10 children. I only know the names of two of these children. They were G.W. ROBY and Dolly S (ROBY) FICKLE. His second wife was Cathrine ______, married bef 1836 in OH and had one known son Eligas Roby that died 1913 in Marion Co., OH. Is there anyone who knows about this family? Pleas help.

Surnames: Roby, Bowes
I believe that my great-great-grandmother is a daughter of Thomas Roby and Sarah Kelly. Her name was Mary Jane Roby. She was born in Ohio in 1826. She married George Bowes in 1848 in Walworth Wisconsin. They settled in Mount Pleasant, Greene County, Wisconsin. George Bowes was a blacksmith. (see the 1850 census). (The 1860 census has them living in Lemonweir, Juneau County, Wisconsin). In the 1870 census, they are back in Mt Pleasant, Wisconsin. I next find them in the 1885 Iowa special census living in Hartley, O'Brien County, Iowa. They had 10 children. Their first child, a daughter, was named Sarah R. Bowes. Their last son was named Milton Ralph Bowes (my great-grandfather). I see that Dooly named one of her sons "Milton".
A recent DNA test through Ancestry.com matched me to Dorthia Dolly Roby, daughter of Thomas Roby. If anyone has any information regarding this I would appreciate a reply. Thanks in advance.
