The parents of James P Rowden, b. 1840 were William H. Rowden b. abt 1813 and Malinda b. 1811 per 1850 census Jersey Co Roll #111, Township 7, Range 12.I have a copy of this census as I am researching the Rowdens as well to find information on my ggggrandmother, Mary Jane Rowden and to link her to my maiden name of PATTON.Mary Jane's first son was ALLEN D. PATTON, who I believe was raised by her father and mother Abram E. Rowden and Tamalia Walden.Trying to find the father of Allen, possibly Judson Patton.Mary Jane had a number of husbands over her life. If anyone knows the link between the Rowdens and Pattons, I would appreciate it.
Abram E. Rowden's parents were William E. Rowden and Levina Prewitt.
