Per "Mercer County Kentucky Records" published by Cook Publications: Benjamin Row acquires a marriage license with Catherine Burks on Nov 13, 1826 with her father Edmund giving consent. John Roe acquires license with Elizabeth Williamson and is married on October 3, 1798. Adam Beatty acquires a license with Lydia Rowe on Dec 22, 1827 with her father James giving consent. Cane Row acquires license with Mary Ann Prall on Dec 9, 1833 with John Row consenting for his son and Benjamin Prall consenting "for a colored girl of his, September 5, 1833". In the 1820 Mercer County KY census, Solomon Row seems to be the head of household that would fit more closely to my Rowe line that migrated to the Monroe County IN area about 1830. Other heads include Benjamin Rowe but he has no females for whom I have at least two sisters (Elizabeth & Harwar born about 1804/1806) who migrated to IN with a brother (Benjamin b 1800); David Row and Elizabeth Row heads are possibilities; and, James H Rowe indicates no females in his household but from above marriage licenses he had a daughter named Lydia and a son named Cane. Does anyone have any information about these early Mercer Co KY Rowe heads? My Rowe siblings married into the surnames of Burks, Rice, and Eller; and, per later censii, each sibling states they were born in Virginia.
