Gaige gives birth between 9-02-1819 and 8-02-1820. The Chess Match by Electric Telegraph has 'Rev. C. Rowley' as a spectator at the St. James Club - Dublin Athenaeum Club Telegraph match, as does the Chess Player's Magazine of Apr. 1865 (p.94), while the Era (26 Feb. 1865, p.14) and Le Palamède Français (May 1865, p.415) have 'W. Rowley' at that event.
