I don't have much on him. He married Ann Hawkins before 1837. They had a daughter Elizabeth A. Rowe born 9-9-1837 in Liverpool, England. Their other children were John Jr. b1843, Adeline b1846, Adeline b1846, George b1849, William. He came to US before 1842. I have not been to Swaledale, but was given some information from another researcher. John came from the village of Grinton. He may have been a miner. Your response is appreciated. Connie PS I live in Minnesota. My Rowe's were in Wisconsin.
