I am looking to connect with any ROWDEN researchers who are looking into family in Roane, Meigs Co's of East TN(Meigs formerly called Rhea before 1836).My CASH and FORD families are interconnected w/ the Rowden's and travelled to Cedar Co. MO ca. 1848-50 w/ some of them.A couple of notable members that seem connected:
Elijah Rowden on 1830 Roane Co. TN Census(to Cedar Co. MO by 1850)...his sons? Meshack and Abednego are listed close by on census...area borders North Meigs Co. and appears to overlap in records.
Asa(Asail?) Rowden who purchased land in Ten Mile Region of Rhea Co. TN ca. 1823(later becomes Meigs Co)
John Rowden in Richwoods Twnsp., Miller Co. MO 1860(from Meigs Co. TN?) My Cash's live side by side w/ him, and go back to Meigs Co. TN and associate w/ Elizabeth Rowden there.
Have info on these guys and would love to know more about them from any family/researcher's.Thanks in advance, Chris Cash
