Routh Family

I have always been extremely interested in my grandmother's family, the Routh family.  Grannie is on the bottom row, on the right.  Her name was Lora Day Routh Bowden, and she was known as Bee because her brother, the one standing on the left of their father, could not say baby when she was born, so he called her Bee.

The Rouths were so interesting.  They were pioneers.  The old man in the middle, my great-grandfather, Robert Devon Routh, was a Texas Ranger during the Indian Wars and died as the jailer of the Brown County, Texas, jail at the age of 94.

I have begun a Routh Family Facebook Page.  If you are a Routh, interested in genealogy, please join us!
