This message is for the four people on this GenForum who are descended from Michael Carrow of Norfolk Co., Ontario. I have always assumed that his wife was Mary Wilson. However, I wrote to Midland Co., Mich., for a certified copy of Joseph Carrow's death certificate. As expected, they listed his father as Michael Carrow. However, his mother was listed as Amelia Carrow. This was not a case of the clerk transcribing it incorrectly. Rather than making a new, certified copy, the clerk Xeroxed the original entry in the official record book which was done shortly after Joseph passed on. Does anyone have any theories about this?
