Dr. Daniel Rowlett left Calloway County Ky. in about 1836 headed for the Texas Revolution with his son-in-law Richard Locke and several slaves. After the war, Daniel served several terms as a Congressman in the Republic of Texas. A young slave was Anderson Rowlett, whose recollections of serving as an Indian fighter with Dr. Daniel and living thru the Red River Indian Wars are in the Texas archives. My understanding is that his descendants still live in or near Fannin County, Texas.
