Rowden Family Genealogy Forum
I seek information on Hooper J. Rowden, born 4 Mar 1824 in Harlan Co., KY. He married Lydia Ann Frances Messick, born abt. 1833 in Coffee Co., TN, daughter of John Wesley Messick and Celia Wilkerson. H.J. and Lydia were married in Gibson Co., TN on 6 Mar 1851. They moved to Arkansas with Lydia's parents and settled in Marion County, Arkansas. Both are buried in the Nanney Cemetery in that county. These are my gggrandparents. Lydia's family is fairly well documented, but we know almost nothing about H.J. Rowden. I would very much appreciate hearing from anyone who might shed light on him for me.
