The Descendants Of
Rowan immigrants to America were each given ID numbers. This was done for two reasons: First, to identify those who have common names, such as William, John, Elizabeth, Mary, etc; and Second, so that anyone looking at a Rowan descendant’s biography can immediately identify which Rowan immigrant he descends from. These ID numbers follow the person’s name, and start with [R1..., [R2..., etc. Their children will have a letter added to the parent’s ID number, and the grandchildren will have a number added, and so on, alternating letters and numbers each generation.
There are Source Codes contained in (parenthe-ses) at the end of most biographies. For the sources of information, check the Rowan Source Code File.
There is a Web Page called Pictures. In some of the biographies there will be a text note (picture) which is an indication for you to go to the ROWAN Pictures link to see that person's picture. Most pictures are from 1930 or before, and more will be added as time and availability permit.
