CARROW, Simcoe, Ontario, Canada

Most of the information I have about my great grandmother, Catherine Carrow, comes from this obituary, which was published in The St. Louis Leader, a newspaper from Gratiot County, Michigan.

"Catherine Carrow, oldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Carrow, was born May 2, 1843, at Simcoe, Ontario, Canada, and passed from this life at her home in Bethany Twp., Gratiot County, Michigan, Oct. 21, 1924. In 1861, she was married to William Hunt, who died in 1872. To this union were born seven children, five of whom are now living - William Hunt of St. Louis; Mrs. J.E. O'Brien of Lansing; Mrs. B.E. Allen of St. Louis (my grandmother); Mrs. Joseph Fox of Dowagiac; and Mrs. H.W. Morrison of Mt. Pleasant. She is also survived by two sisters, Mrs. Frank Barton and Mrs. Richard Carr of Midland; and 13 grandchildren. She was married to T.A. Miller in 1902, he passing away in 1907. Mrs. Miller was a life-long member of the Methodist Episcopal Church. The funeral was held October 23 from the late residence in Bethany Twp." Note: All of the above towns are in Michigan. The obituary doesn't say whether she was born in the town of Simcoe or Simcoe County in Ontario.

This is the only additional information I have about Catherine Carrow. She is buried in Oak Grove Cemetery in St. Louis, Michigan. I had always been told that her maiden name was CARREAUX. The first time I realized the name had been anglicized to CARROW was when I found this obituary. However, I know this obit. refers to my great grandmother, because my mother used to talk about her Uncle William Hunt, Uncle Joe Fox, etc.

include the name CARROW.. Hopefully, through this GenForum, I will get some information.
