      My Dowling line is from Robert to William to Elijah to daugh. Eleanor who married John Hanberry.

      We have no pictures of Eleanor Dowling Hanberry or her husband John. If anyone has a picture of either of them, I would be happy to pay the cost of copying and mailing.

      My grandfather Hanberry was the one who participated in the yellow fever experiment.

      Any help with pictures (or any other info on Eleanor Dowling Hanberry would be greatly appreciated.

      Hi List,
      I believe my Dowling line originated in Ireland, but I don't know where to
      look for them there. It could be the Galway area. My earliest Dowling was
      Robert born about 1704 probably in Ireland and then he probably emigrated to
      Virginia. He married (unknown) and they had a son Robert who was born in
      Agusta County, Virginia. This Robert had three sons, Jabez, Elijah and
      Cageby. Elijah, my ggg grandfather, married Elizabeth Rice and their
      daughter Eleanor was my gg grandmother and she married John Hanberry in South
      Carolina. If anyone is familiar with these Dowlings please contact me.

      Thanks

      Chuck Hanberry
