I am hoping someone with access to the state archives may know how to get this information easily.
ooking for marriage record of Dorothy "Dolly" Rowell b. 1769 (place of birth & parents unknown) to James Moses on 15 Dec 1796 @ Epsom, Merrimac, NH. I am hoping the marriage record will contain the name of at least one of the parents of Dorothy/Dolly Rowell. This is my last hope, unless someone can find her birth record.
She was the sister or 1/2 sister of my ancestor Hannah Rowell Holmes. The two lived in the early 1800s in the Eastern Townships of Quebec. I have church records there that indicate they were sisters & served as witnesses to each other's children's marriages, etc. The family also had some ties to the Gale family of New Hampshire & Quebec.
Hannah Rowell married Joseph Holmes of Farmington, NH in 1802 @ Stanstead, PQ. However, this marriage was performed by a layperson and no official vital record exists (that I know of), except for a church record from 1832 saying the couple had re-married in the church.
If anyone is looking for a challenge, this is it! I am trying to find the parents of Hannah Rowell Holmes, her place & date of birth. Her death record indicates she was born approx. 1781, but that could be a guess.
Thanks to anyone reading this. Any tiny clue could help.
