Rowbottoms from PA

I am looking for several missing links. I am looking for an Abraham Rowbottom who would have married Marie Rowan (Rowen?) sometime around 1918. They had 7 children. I am also looking for information about them. Their names were Donald, Rita, Gregory, Jack, Paul, Mary and Della Jean (Jeanie). Abraham owned two shoe stores, and he and Marie divorced sometime in the 1930's. She remarried a man named William Shread. During the time she was divorced, she had to put the four boys in an orphanage, and the elder sister in the convent. I also know that she left the boys Jack and Paul in the orphanage, and one of them was in California sometime in the late 1940's.

If anyone has any further information, please e-mail me at
