Not sure if connected, but I'd ASSUME Caroline was NOT a daughter of John & Susan ROWE. They had two daughters under 5 in the 1840 Census, but ARE a part of these Strafford County ROWE families. John and Susan were both born @1800, NH, he was likely a year or two older, based on some of the census records. They both ended up in the poor house/alms house in Strafford Town in 1850, he is seen there still in 1860. He was living with his son, George W. ROWE in 1870 Census, and believe he passed before 1880.
Though the ROWEs of Massachusetts are far easier to sort out, thanks to the VR collections prior to 1850, the ROWEs of Strafford will force me to make a trip back to Concord, NH to the archives to find the missing pieces.
I'll see, if I go, if I can't possibly find information on your Caroline. John and Susan's son, George W., had a daughter named Carrie, perhaps Caroline on official records, but she was born in 1870. Maybe, in some way, she was namesake of your 1831 Caroline?
