Frances was second wife of William Andrew Rowan (1836-1898), and was a daughter of Henry C Hand and Keziah Matilda Griffith. After William's first wife America R Tanner died in 1872, Frances became the baby-sitter for America's five children. Four years later Frances and Will married at Hartford, KY on 13 Feb 1876 and had seven more children. Rose Reed (Rowan) Emrich, their third child, is buried next to Frances' grave. Frances' husband and their second child Will Jr (1878-1899), are probably buried in unmarked graves behind Rose's grave. Most of Frances' children are buried in Oaklawn Cemetery just west of Jonesboro.
