Shared note

Her mother, Irene (Parker) Vary, wife of Edward Eugene Vary, died when Stella was a small girl and she was adopted by her maternal aunt, Sarah (Parker) Lasher and great-uncle by marriage (John Lasher) and given the name of Stella Lasher. (Lucy Priscilla Vary Lasher, Stella's great-aunt, was John Lasher's first wife.) In 1966, Stella and her husband Arthur were honored for their 50th consecutive year of poultry exhibits at the annual Lewis County Fair at Lowville, NY. That year they had 130 chickens on display but some years they had as many as 300 exhibits. Mrs. Rowsam also exhibited flowers, vegetables, antiques, and fancy work. She died at age 104!
