Sadie's husband, John Henry Stowell, according to a copy of a baptismal certificate, was born January 9, 1881, in Rensselaer Falls, New York.  He and Sadie married 26 June 1901, Ogdensburg, NY, per Rose Gerber's notes.  John died in Nov 1958 in Seattle.  His obituary says he's buried at Washelli Cemetery, but the cemetery said they had no record of him.

A "List or Manifest of Alien Passengers Applying for Admission" in the year 1916 at the Port of Blaine, WA, USA, includes:

Moose Jaw, Sask., Canada, is given as last permanent residence and destination as Seattle, WA, USA. For unknown reason, Durward's name doesn't appear. A 1920 US Census of Seattle shows John and Sarah Stowell, the 6 children, gender, age, race or people (given as Irish), country of birth, language spoken and occupation.  The children's recorded birth country is Canada, but written above each is "Amer. Cit.," John's place of birth USA, and Sarah's Canada.

This is what we know so far of Sarah and John's children:
