Genealogy Page for
Thomas Lee Fowler and Melissa Craven Fowler

Our combined family database contains over 10,000 individuals, most related in some direct way, but some only tangentially. We readily admit that some of these people's connections to us were assumed, based on someone else's research or family tree on Ancestry.com. But others have been well documented. Melissa is frank about which information is documented and which is "other people's data" (OPD) in her chapters.
You can access the entire family database at Ancestry.com; Our tree is public and is named "MCF_FamilyDatabase(1)" but you need a subscription to access it unless you contact us for an invitation.
