Prindle family


I have been trying to find any information on a Mary E. Prindle born in New York in abt. 1850 – I have never been able to find any of her Prindle or maternal relatives. She stayed in NY and later married my gr. gr. grandfather John Augustus Lowden in Connecticut. They had three children. She left the family in 1875 and was not heard from again.

If any of this sounds like something you might have come across, would you be so kind as to respond? I’ve been searching for info on her for thirty years.

Thank you,

Prindle family

Sorry, everything I have came from Edith Stevens.
