That being said, I’ve started up more research and right now I’ve hit a roadblock with the Gower/Gauer family. What I have so far: Percilla Kight (<a href=”http://www.mcrobiefamilytree.com/?p=21″>Malinda Jane McRobie</a>, John William) married David Gower/Gauer. They had 13 surviving children, but for some reason the only one …
