a. Continued:   Joseph Rowe married Elizabeth Bartwell by banns, 14 February 1825, in the Parish of Oulton, County Norfolk. (Bishop's Transcripts, Archdeaconry of Norwich, FHL Film 1278925)
  They are undoubtedly the ancestors because their son Henry Rowe was born in Oulton on 1 Feb 1829 (the birth date we know for Henry Rowe in Michigan).
 The 1841 Census records the ancestors in in Tilney, St. Laurence, Norfolk, England:
 Joseph Rowe (age 35-40, b. in Norfolk), wife Elizabeth (age 35-40), sons Henry (age 12) and Jacob (age 5), along with Isaac Bartle (age 15) who was no-doubt a relative of Elizabeth.
  The ancestor Joseph Rowe was not located for certain in 1851. It is not clear when his wife Elizabeth died or whether he remarried. It is also not clear whether the ancestor Joseph Rowe ever went by the surname Green.
  Joseph also immigrated to Michigan, sometime in the 1860s. He also used the name Rowe in the United States, as is evidenced by the 1870 U.S. Census.
  Joseph's occupation was noted as "labourer" on his son Henry's 1850 marriage record. Joseph appears in the U.S. Census taken 9 July 1870, living with the family of his son, Henry Rowe, in Pulaski, Jackson Co., Michigan. This document indicates he was 66, born in England, and he was illiterate.
  Joseph Rowe died at Pulaski, Jackson County, Michigan on 20 October 1870, aged 66 years. He is noted as a widower and the cause of death was inflammation of the lungs. (Jackson County Death Register, FHL Film 941628)
 DNA matches between descendants of Henry Rowe / alias George Green (1829-1908) and Joseph Rowe (1842-1919) who also immigrated to Michigan, confirms they were likely brothers (or half-brothers) and hence both sons of Joseph Rowe who died in 1870.
 Numerous other men named Joseph Rowe and Green lived in England.
  The 1861 Census enumerated a Joseph Rowe (age 59, b. in Stevenge, ag laborer) in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, with wife Emma (age 61) and son Joseph (age 17).
  The 1851 Census enumerated a Joseph Green (age 50, b. in Norwich, hand loom weaver) in Norwich, St. Clement, Norfolk, with sons William (age 18) and George (age 11).
  Several men named Joseph Green lived in the Civil Parish of March (a parish adjacent to Chatteris) in the Ecclesiastical Parish of Doddington and elsewhere in Cambridgeshire and Huntingdonshire. A Joseph Green (age 33), born in March, Cambridgeshire, was enumerated in March with wife Mary, a step-son named Jonathan Pepper, and several children, including a Joseph Green (age 8) who would be the right age to be Joseph Rowe who immigrated to Michigan. On the 1841 Census for England, another Joseph Green (age not clear, but indexed as 40) was enumerated as a "pauper, laborer" in the Union Workhouse in Ely St. Mary, Cambridgeshire, about 14 miles east of Chatteris. is NOT responsible for the content of the GEDCOMs uploaded through the WorldConnect Program.
