Dear Christian,

There is a good chance that we are related. My grandfather is Edward Franklin Towles, born in McMinneville, TN, around the same time as your grandfather. I am trying to connect us to the Towles that came from France, to Liverpool, Virginia, then Kentucky and Tennessee.

I have a message on the message board to Berry Canote, if you care to read it. I am on vacation right now in Minnesota, and that message lists all of the facts I know.

However, the Towles were good and honorable people. Many were christians, and have fought for our country over the years. The ones I knew, most are dead now, were very special. My grandfather's nick name was "Popa T".
