Dwight Van Rensselaer Dowley, late of Philadelphia, PA, circa 04/20/2000, was b. ABT 1913,a son of Francis D. Dowley, Esq., and Helen A. Blackburne Dowley; a grandson of Henry Corbett Dowley and Grace (nee,Dwight) Dowley; and a great-grandson of Francis Dwight and Catharine Van Rennsselaer (nee, Schermerhorn) Dwight. The great-grandmother, Catharine Van Rennsselaer Schermerhorn was a member of the Fourth Branch of the Schermerhorn family founded by Cornelius Jacobse Schermerhorn (b. ABT 1668; d. ? ). Query: Did Dwight V.R. Dowley leave descendants ? Does any Dowley family researcher have a copy of Dwight V.R. Dowley's obituary which he or she could share with me ? I am a Schenectady Branch Schermerhorn family genealogist / family historian / reunion organizer. I thank you in advance for any assistance you can give to this inquiry. Yours, Richard.
