RE: Pvt Hiram T Gilbert
From Findagrave member Stonewall:

He's recorded as enlisting on March 20, 1862. As a Private, he was mustered into Company D, 60th Regiment Indiana Infantry and would serve with this command until November 22, 1862, the date he's listed as a deserter.

Later, he enlisted on March 15, 1863 and was mustered into Battery D, 1st Ohio Light Artillery. He remained in this command until his mustering out which occurred on July 15, 1865 at Camp Cleveland, Ohio.

He is listed as dying on October 23, 1925 in Columbus, Ohio."

CENSUS 1920; Columbus and Lancaster Pike, Bloom Twp., Fairfield Co., OH visitation 103/103
ROWE, John W., 48 widowed b OH; parents b OH; S-am fitter, plumbing company
", Charles [N.?] 5y b OH; parents b OH
COX, Helen B., sister 42 [married? Doesn't look like widowed] b OH; parents b OH

NOTE: No "Helen B." appears in the 1880 census with John and his parents. Is she really a sister? Or maybe remarried sister-in-law?

CENSUS: 1930 Greenfield Twp., Fairfield Co., OH; ED 10 Sh 6A p 241

WOLFORD, Bessie O., servant, 27y divorced b WV, parents b WV

I've got some time to kill tomorrow, so I'll stop by the library and see if I can come up with any obituaries. Do you happen to have exact dates of death for Sargeant and Minerva? I just have a year of death. Also, I did some Dunlop research for someone several months ago. Do you happen to know who her parents were? I might already have some information about them.


Death certificate 47432 image. John Wesley Rowe, Greenfield Twp., Fairfield Co., Ohio, Aug. 11, 1932 aged 60y 7m 24d, married to Bessie Rowe, died very suddenly of acute alcoholism. Born Dec. 17, 1871 in Carroll, Ohio, to Henry Rowe b unknown and Minerva Dunlap b unknown. Informant was Mrs. Bessie Rowe. Buried Carroll Cem., Aug. 14.

NOTE: It appears by the wife's name on his death certificate that he married his housekeeper between June 1930 when the last publicly available census was taken and his death in 1932.

RE: Special Thanks!
No problem. Let me know if you'd like any of these memorials transferred to you. Also, I'm a RAOGK volunteer for Fairfield County, so let me know if you'd like obituaries for any of your Rowe ancestors.

RE: Rowe
New Rowes added to Carroll Cemetery today. I checked the books, and these are all the Rowes listed for Bloom, Greenfield, and Liberty Townships.

RE: Rowe
I've updated and linked all the Rowe memorials that I have for Fairfield County, which isn't many. Death records show John Wesley Rowe as the son of Henry Rowe and Minerva Dunlap. I haven't finished photographing Carroll Cemetery yet, but when I do, I'll keep an eye out for other Rowe family members and let you know.

Would you like me to check the cemetery records books for Rowe burials in other Fairfield County cemeteries?
