HI

Don't know if you are still on genes, just found this. Sarah's mother was Maria Rowing / Rowen

Margaret, as This is so old, it might be worth trying to send a message to Jeanne by clicking on her name. However, as she never posted anything else at all on Genes I wouldn't hold out much hope!
If you need further assistance, let us know.

Maria Pooley was a witness at this marriage in 1838 and the grooms father was recorded as Stephen Rowing so possibly George was Maria's brother???
