Catherine Dow (Kate) Cowan and William A Todd were married at York Street Presbyterian Church, Belfast, on September 17th, 1879. She was second surviving daughter of the late James Cowan, Belfast, and granddaughter of John Cowan, Ashton Villa, Shawlands, Glasgow.  I am gg granddaughter of Kate's older brother, John Cowan who emigrated to Australia.  Please contact me so I can share more family information.

Please get in touch with me, I'd almost forgotten that I'd asked this question! Are you in Australia?
Yes I'm in Melbourne, Aust. Kate Cowan had 3 brothers - John, Alexander Dow and James. They all left Belfast & emigrated to Melbourne - John later took his familly to Perth, WA but the other two stayed in Melb.  My ggrandfather is John but I am also in contact with descendants of James who had 9 children. Alexander Dow had 2 sons who died in each World War and were not married.My mother's brother lived in South Africa and his family were in contact with yr grandmother Marge.Arnold. I have photos & letters etc I can share. Do you live in Canada? How can we share more family info and communicate directly?
This is wonderful! I live in South Africa, still in the same place that Marge Arnold lived, Westminster in the Free State. The only other relation I have been in touch with is Dunc Duncan in Canada and he has just turned 90. It would be great to find out more about my family! You should be able to get my email address from this site and email me directly. thanks, Ann

It's along time since you posted this question Ann but am hoping you're still active in family history! Kate Todd is the sister of my husband's G-grandmother Isabella Marguerite Payne [nee Cowan]. His family still live in N Ireland and we've done some research into the Dow/ Cowan branches of the family, including visiting graves / home locations etc.

Fingers crossed you see this and we can make contact, Regards Diane McMillen
Hi Diane, this is wonderful! I would love to hear more from you! My Gran, Marge was named Marguerite after someone in the family, maybe her aunt! You should be able to get my email from this site otherwise send me yours?
