Not till I read your message . Oh dear. Never mind. I blame these digital clocks.  So difficult to tell the time now :-(. Thanks for letting me know.

Hello Brian,

Welcome to RootsChat. When you reply to a topic like you just have done it will automatically send an email notification to the member to let them know of your reply.

Although the post was made 10 years ago genjen is still active and was online about 10 days ago, I am sure she will reply soon.

Regards

Sarah

Noooo….it hasn't been ten years! I don't spend as much time on Rootschat as I used to but still check fairly regularly and will always respond to some who replies to one of my posts.

Hello Brian,

We are indeed related, through Clarence Howe. My grandfather was John McIntosh Howe. I think I might have spoken, on the phone, to a member of your family in Greenock some years ago. Whoever it was gave me a thorough telling off about the behaviour of my grandparents, who apparently never got in touch again after they moved to Middlesbrough around the time of WW2. I took the blame squarely on my shoulders although I wasn't born until several years later!! ;D

I grew up near Middlesbrough but have lived in Cumbria for the past forty years.

Hi Jen,
No idea who that was in Greenock as my mother Margaret (nee Glass) died in 2008 and my father in 2010 but I have information on our side of the Howe family - my phone number is (*) for a chat?
Kind regards,
Brian
