Sower Family anyone?
« on: Friday 01 February 19 21:35 GMT (UK) »
I've only just discovered that my Gt Uncle Daniel Brady married into the Sower family in Dublin.
He Married Harriett Sower (transcribed as Sowers) Harriett was of minor age.  Father William Sower, Soldier.
Birth Certificate: Harriett Sower Born 17 Apr 1882 at Curragh Camp, Dist of Newbridge, Union of Naas, Co. Kildare, Ireland. 
Father William Sower Private O.S.C. Mother Mary Tyrrelll
Father W. Sower of Curragh Camp Registered the Birth on 25 April 1882

Marriage of William Sower & Mary Tyrrell:
Married 15 Oct 1873 at COI Church Ballysax, Co. Kildare
William Sower Full age, Bachelor Private Army Service Corp of Curragh Camp.
Father W'm Sower, Tin Smith.
Spouse: Mary Tyrrell Full age, Spinster of Ballysax.
Father Peter Tyrrell, Painter

I think this is the mother with daughter Harriett.

Thanks Sinnan. 

I had seen the death for Catherine but couldn't find her birth. 

I never thought of looking for Kate Soyers! ::)
