I am researching the Fowler Family, originally from Maryland. James D. Fowler was born in Maryland around 1813. He married Elizabeth Paxton in 1835, Montgomery County Maryland. They moved to Washington, D.C..

They had 7 children: Elizabeth, Ruth A., William T., James H., Joseph E., Emma J. and Samuel F. Fowler.

Elizabeth Paxton Fowler died 2 Oct 1864 in Washington, DC. Her parents were William Paxton (b1763) and Ruth Sellman/Selman Paxton (b1784).

In 1865 James D. Fowler married the widow Eliza A.(Blincoe)Cornell. Eliza was born 21 May 1839 in Virginia.

They had 5 children: Ella, Lula, Eugene D. Fowler and 2 unknown children.

James D. Fowler, died 25 June 1894 in Washington,DC. Eliza A.B.C. Fowler died 31 May 1916 in Washington,DC.

Also researching the Brown's of Somerset, Worcester and Wicomico Counties in Maryland. George Brown of Somerset County, born around 1696 and his wife Ann Wilson Brown, born around 1700 in Maryland. Her parent's were George and Mary Wilson of Somerset County.

George and Ann W. Brown had three children: Margaret, George,Jr. and Andrew Wilson Brown.

Taylor, Twyne/Twynne, Ward, West and Wroth.
Most of these ancestors lived in Maryland, Delaware and Virginia. Through the years may have migrated to the South and West.

Any information would be appreciated. I am also willing to share the information that I have.

When you view this tree you will find several surnames not listed above. These people are just extended branched of the family tree. Which I included just for the fun of it. The information was found from various sources, so not all the information may be correct. But I hope the information will help those who need some assistance.
