I have a Thomas Rowsey (Rowzie, Rouze) born about 1765 in Virginia who died 6 Sep 1852 in Hardin Co., Tennessee who married Elizabeth Richardson 10 Jan 1789 in Campbell Co.,Virginia. Elizabeth was born abt 1770 in Bedford Co., Virginia(later became part of Campbell Co.)to John Richardson and Dorothy Snow. Thomas and Elizabeth had the following children that I know of: Jonathan(John) Rowsey md Martha Magee born abt 1795 went to McNairy Co.,Tenn.; Delilah Rowsey born abt 1797, marr Abner Wells 26 Jan 1816;Morgan Rowsey born abt 1799 in Kentucky and marr. Elizabeth; George Rowsey born abt 1805 in Kentucky, marr Mary (Polly) Wilson; Zebick S. Rowsey born abt 1812 in Kentucky, marr Martha E.; James Harrison Rowsey born abt 1816 in Kentucky, died in the 1880's in McNairy, Tenn; Eliz. Rowsey born abt 1829 in Kentucky, marr James H Robertson.
Thomas could not have been born in 1789 and had children in the 1790's. I have more on both these families. My direct line is from Elizabeth's brother George who also went to Kentucky and settled in Cumberland Co., Kentucky. I would like some ideas on who Thomas descends from. Anyone out there with more on these families please email me. Marilyn Monson
