Hi Janice,
Your Mom & Dad stayed with Henry & Irene Rowand when they were here for the reunion in 1982. Irene Vallie stayed with there too. Henry, Irene and Mary Ellen Roach, Henry's sister, visited Bruce County sometime after the reunion but I'm not sure when. My mother, Margaret Twigg is another sister.
I do not have any more copies of the family history. I did start to copy it out on my computer again but as yet I haven't gotten far. If and when I get it done I'll let you know.
There is mention of Nokomis Rowands on this site. These Rowands are descendants of James, your William's brother. James and Abram Rowand, sons of James Rowand, were the first Rowands to come to Manitoba. In 1903 Abram's wife died and two years later he moved to Nokomis with his three children.
Another Rowand researcher is David Lamb. His anscestor is Andrew Rowand another brother of your William.
Keep in touch,
Marilyn
