The Carrow Family of Delmarva and North Carolina ~ A very fine book by Don Carrow

I was very thrilled to be mentioned in Donald Carrow's very well done family book titled
The Carrow Family of James Franklin Carrow of Bath NC  which was sent to the publisher this week.
The Dedication and Acknowledgement  page reads this way "The genealogy herein would not have been possible without the untiring efforts of my wife Jane and my second cousin Bea Latham....
Additional exhaustive study was provided by genealogical researchers Kathy Carrow Ingram and Vern Skinner. Kathy's input, effort, data and interest is priceless and ongoing".

A great deal of information is included in this small document which is a culmination of years of effort. It will be placed in the Brown Library, Washington  and Bath Library, both in North Carolina.
