      Dear John & Marcella,
      The Gowan material arrived yesterday.  Interesting, and I feel sure that these
      are the sisters David went to visit in 1855, but Mary's birth date is certainly
      a puzzle.  1826 or 27 is a bit of a problem, since David was supposedly the
      youngest, and came to the States in 1841 at age 17, but we don't have firm
      evidence for either of those numbers.  1808 would mean Mary gave birth to her
      youngest at age 47, not impossible, but I think unlikely at that time.  And how
      could people mistake a person's age by 18 years, younger or older?
      I am looking for help on the Gowans in Co. Down, as I have not been able to
      locate anything on my own, so if someone comes up with information about the
      family, that may answer the question.  It certainly isn't bothering me.
      As to the Robinsons, you have given me some information about Elizabeth's
      parents that is good to have. I knew nothing but their names before.  And I
      even have her grandparents' names, so that was a real breakthrough.  I can
      offer considerable information about the 2 who strayed, William and Elizabeth,
      since the latter is my own family, and I have known a good many of the former's
      descendents since childhood.  So I am attaching something for 2 generations.  I
      don't know how much you would be interested in, but will be glad to give you
      the whole story, as I have it so far, if you would want it.
      It looks as though John and I are distantly connected by marriage.
      Thanks for all your help.
