In Reply to: Connection to Dowleys in MO? by L. Dowley of 45

I'm in heaven...Dowley family. YES!!!!!!! How do these names sound to you? This is what I have for descendants of Maurice J. Dowley, father of my Thomas Patrick Dowley who moved from Missouri to Ohio and lived near his half sister, Evelyn C. (Leason) Mullen. I go to his hometown of Cuba, Crawford Co., MO quite often. I have photos of some of his family's headstones from the Catholic cemetery I will share. I just found Thomas' sisters Kathryn and Nellie's families a few weeks ago. I was sent Thomas' father's obituary and will gladly share a copy with you. Email, quickly. This is great!!!! Cousin LiRae
