Arthur Rowe

I've "rescued" an old photograph of Arthur ROWE which was taken at the New York Gallery Studio in Portland, OR in the 1890's. Arthur was just an infant at the time the photograph was taken. Based on limited research I was able to gather the following information regarding Arthur and his family:

Arthur Dean ROWE was b. 2 Mar 1893 in Portland, OR to parents Jonas B. ROWE (1858-1941) and Hilma or Helma Oliva CARLSON (1863-1929). Arthur was one of 4 children born to this couple including, Arthur Dean; Herbert Wilbert; Mabel Rena; and Sarah Jane ROWE, all born between 1893 and 1902. Arthur married twice, once to Lorena or Lora May HUGHES (b. 1889) she had a daughter, Nadine NELSON (b. 1908). Arthur died 4 Mar 1977.
