I am looking for persons researching the ROWE family. My connection is
with Adam Rowe, b. 1801 in Breckenridge Co., KY. Adam m. Catherine MILLER
6/8/1827 in Perry Co., Ind. and sometime after then moved to Davis Co., Ia.
Children of Adam and Catherine ROWE were: Daniel C., William, Polly,
Phillip, Bernetta, Delanio/Delvo, Elizabeth J., Catherine, Cynthia and
Let's compare notes!
We have been having trouble here in Cumberland Co., TN with getting our
e-mails. Haven't heard from any of these lists for quite some time. Do I
need to re-subscribe?
Would the listowners contact me if I need to re-subscribe.
The Davis Co. GenWeb site now has a big list of cemeteries that are
in Davis County. I recently made inquiry as to the location of the
"Spence" cemetery, (which is not on the GNIS list) and have susequently
found its location, and names of folks buried there.
The location of the "Spence" cemetery is in the Northwest quarter of
Section 5 of Lick Creek Twp., Davis Co., IA. Some of the names of folks
buried there are: Brewer, Dyer, Foster, Minor, Filcher (or Pilcher),
Rayburn, Ryun, Spence. There are apparently 3 or 4 graves with funeral
home markers, but no names or dates which are readable. The information
was copied by Mrs. Olin Laws of Bloomfield, IA. and I think comes from the
Iowa State Gen. Soc.
The big list of cemeteries does not have a list of its inhabitants.
Perhaps that is a project everyone could contribute to, such as has and is
being done in Grundy Co., MO and at other sites as well. Any ideas?
