Thank you Tom, I'll probably be contacting you in the future on other questions or for further information as I needed it. Is that okay? I'd like to get the Jersey County, Ill. line tied into the Missouri line after I finish up entering everything I have on the Missouri Rowden's.
I spent the afternoon doing a little digging on Rootsweb's boards and via the Maries County Mailing list I'm a member of and received a ton of Rowden information. There are alot of them in the Maries County area and are all related one way or another. It's just a matter of sorting them out and figuring out who is who.
The children of Abraham ROWDEN(1752-1822) and Rachel CREEK (1762-?) were were fruitful and did multiply.Abraham and Rachel had 9 children and 39 grandchildren. Almost half of the grandchildren can be attributed to their son Nathanial (1785-1872) and his five wives. Nathaniel's last wife(Elizabeth Hawkins) was a year younger than his oldest daughter.
My weekend will be spent entering in all the new information I've received in the last 24 hours. Then you should hear from me again.
