Dowdell's

To all Dowdell desendants Black & White.

More than likely I'm the only African American Dowdell researching the Dowdell's Black and White. As some of you already know my research is a little different. I must research the white Dowdell's in order to discover my own history with the Black Dowdell's. My ancestor's were slaves belonging to James & Lewis Dowdell and some even to Silas Dowdell. When James died my direct line was inherited by his daugther Lousia Dowdell. Over 170 of my relatives are listed in his will. I really need some help here from the desendants of Lousia, Did she have a will? Does anyone have any information on her or her siblings? I have a photo of James Dowdell I'd be glad to copy and send to anyone that can help me with information on Lousia.

Thank You, Gayle
