Hi again.Since I post message 134 I have have found out even
more information.I was looking for the Rowen=Finley cem.in
Gwinnett County, Georgia.I called the Historical Society
of Gwinnett County,Ga. and they gave me the location of the
cem.I went to the cem. and it is very run down.Of course the
cem. has been there since around 1850.There are two markers
in the cem.that looks almost new.One marker is on Hubbard A
Rowden( a military marker)giving his date of birth and his
date of death,also indicating that he was in the War of1812.
He is the father of nine children,one of which is my
Christopher Augustine Rowden.The other marker has the year
of birth and the year of death on four people.Rebecca A.
Rowden,Susan Rowden,Crockett Allen Rowden,Permelia Everett
Rowden(wife of Hubbard A.Rowden)and the last name is,and I
quote from the marker-Covered Wagon Girl,died 1855.If anyone
out there knows who put the two markers in that cem.,please
let me know.My e-mail is coinmac@aol.com. Thanks
Richard McCleskey
