I am looking for information on Thomas G. Rowe (b. approximately 1821 in New York State). Rowe is the platter of Elizabethtown, Colfax County, NM. He is listed in the 1870 federal census of Colfax County with three other native New Yorkers at his residence (gold miners).

Rowe is also the founder of my home town, Onalaska, Wisconsin (1851). From the paper trail that I have found, it appears that Rowe liked to have business dealings with other native New Yorkers.

Has anyone ever come across the name Thomas G. Rowe when looking at the early county records of Colfax County?
