I am trying to learn something about Peter M. Rowland, born 1820, and d. 1882, son of Robert Rowland and Elizabeth Baker of Henry Co., Virginia. At the outbreak of the Civil War, Peter M. Rowland organized a company of cavalry that became Co. A, Calvary 5th Battalion, Hilliard's Legion, Alabama Volunteers, later known as Co. A, 10th Confederate Cavalry. And after the War, he was Judge of Probate Court for Chambers Co. in the 1870s and 1880s.
Did Peter M. Rowland marry and have a family? His brother James Wellington Rowland, b. 1818 and d. 1895, married Elizabeth A. Mills and settled in Yalobusha Co., Mississippi in the 1840s and raised a family there, one of whom was Mary Ann Rowland, my g-g-grandmother.
