    • There are several unresolved qustions abour Harriett and Ephraim Stow(e).

      1. The birth certificate for their daughter Elizabeth Eliza (born 11.1.1848) shows mother's name as Harriett Stowe, formerly Brooker. We know that in 1841, Harriett was living with Robert and Elizabeth (Brooker). They married in 1832, a date after Harriett's birth date of about 1830, so it's possible that Harriett kept her mother's surname rather than adopting that of her mother's husband (who was probably (but not definitely - we don't have a birth certificate) Harriett's father.

      2. No record has been found of Harriett actually marrying Ephraim Stow, either as Harriett Minter or Harriett Brooker. Ther's no doubt they were a couple however - the 1861 census shows they had 5 children in addition to Elizabeth Eliza.

      3. It's a mystery why Harriett's daughter was living with her grandparents Robert & Elizabeth in 1861. It's also a mystery where she was in 1851 - not with either her parents or her grandparents.
