Allen Alfred Dowley, Ireland, Canada, Texas

I recently corresponded with the grandson of Allen Alfred Dowley and this is an additon to my other posting. Allen Alfred Dowley left Ireland with his father and brother and both drowned at sea. He went to Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. Married a woman, Nellie Whitehead and had one son named Beaul Dowley. He moved to the United States after the death of both his wife and son. He married his second wife Anne Poe and had three children, William Alfred b. 1899, Dexter, and a daughter, name unknown. They lived in Texas. When Anne died the children were separated to live with different relatives. The two younger children got sick and died. Allen Alfred took a third wife, Sara Melvina Tiner and had one daughter, Eather b.1911 in Apple Springs, Texas. William Alfred lived in Centralia Texas and received a post card from a cousin in Halifax named Annie or Anne Dowley. This postcard is a picture of a mill in Yarmouth she and her sisters children Portia and Eva, worked at. Nothing else is known about this cousin, we assume Alfred Allen already had family living in Halifax before he immigrated from Ireland. William Alfred's children have tried to contact them but they did not respond. Years ago they also obtained an address of a family in Belfast, Ireland with the name of Dowley but the woman wrote back saying she did not think they were related.I have a new e-mail address so any responses need to be made to this post and are greatly appreciated.
