We are still working, and in this crate are finishing, our listing of the fabulous periodical published by Jo White Linn, Editor of ROWAN COUNTY REGISTER, one of the finest, award-winning, county-specific periodicals in this country.

 

Why is this county so important?   

Rome wasn't built in one day and neither was Rowan County!

 

The land that is now in Rowan County was once a part of the original county of Bath.  But it didn't stay that way.  Here are some of the jurisdictional changes that Rowan County, NC, went through to become what it is today.

 

ROWAN COUNTY, NORTH CAROLINA WAS CREATED FROM ANSON COUNTY ON 27 MARCH 1753.  BUT THIS DOES NOT TELL THE WHOLE STORY!

ROWAN COUNTY'S HISTORY OF DEVELOPMENT:

PARENT COUNTIES OF ROWAN COUNTY, NC

THIS IS HOW IT ALL STARTED!

1.)  Bath County was created in 1696 as an Original County.  Some of the land this county contained became, 57 years later, the land of Rowan County, NC.

2.) That land then became a part of Archdale Precinct on 3 December 1705

3.)  The land that had been a part of Archdale Precinct of Bath County joined with Craven County when its name was changed to Craven County in 1712.

4.) The land that was located in CravenCounty was separated from Craven and became New Hanover County on 27 November 1729.

5.) New Hanover land became Bladen County's land in 1734.

6.) Bladen land then became Anson County land on 17 March 1749.

7.) Rowan County was created, from the land that had been a part of Anson County, until Rowan County was created on 27 March 1753.

Researchers need to check County Records in Parent Counties of Rowan -  Bath 1696-1705: Archedale Precinct 1705-1712: Craven County 1712-1729: New Hanover County 1729-1734: Bladen 1734-1749, Anson County 1749-1753 for their ancestor's marriages, births, deaths, wills, tax and land records.  I check ten year's worth of records up and down from these years, because there are always some people in a family that are left behind, maybe in the cemetery, or married and moved to another county altogether, but they did not follow the rest of the family at the same time the others moved. Then, of course, there were others in this family who were born after it became something else and may never have known their families had been a part of Rowan County.  There are usually some family members that also go ahead, like the place they get to, settle in, and then call the rest of the family to join them.  I do think anyone who has Rowan County Roots needs to check out this information for this county!   

*****     *****     *****     *****     *****     *****     *****     *****     *****     *****     ***** 

Now this is the other side of the problem! All of these counties listed below were once a part of Rowan County, NCRowan County became their parent county and all these counties were her progeny.  They became a new county after being a part of Rowan for many years, so for any date before the given date found below, the records for these people may be found in Rowan County

PROGENY COUNTIES OF ROWAN COUNTY, NC 

(Part of Rowan until 1770 then with part of Orange became Guilford County),

(Part of Rowan until 1770 then became Surry County),

(Part of Rowan until 1777-then became Burke County),

(Part of Rowan until 1788 then became Iredell County),

(Part of Rowan until 1822-then became Davidson County),

(Part of Rowan until 1836-then became Davie County),

Also, any of those counties made from parts of these break-away counties may have been a part of Rowan County. 

Burke [Buncombe, Caldwell, McDowell, Mitchell, and YanceyCounties], 

Guilford [Randolph and Rockingham Counties,]

Iredell [Alexander County] and

Surry [Stokes and Wilkes Counties] These counties could contain people whose early roots were first in Rowan County.  

So if you find your ancestors in Alexander, Buncombe, Burke, Caldwell, Davidson, Davie, Guilford, Iredell, McDowell, Mitchell, Randolph, Rockingham, Stokes, Surry, Wilkes or Yancey Counties, North Carolina, you need to look in Rowan County Records for information on your surnames because they could well have had parents, grandparents and great- rand parents who lived and left records in Rowan County, North Carolina!  

 

These are a lot of jurisdictional changes, but if you are not looking for the right documents in the right courthouse, you will NOT find them.

The art that was collected by King Ludwig and displayed in the five castles in which he lived during his lifetime, kept the arts alive in a period of recession for Bavaria.  Now the citizens of that fine, beautiful area pay no income taxes whatsoever, because the government is funded by the tourists who travel through the land and pay to take tours of the castles.  I loved them all, but I wouldn't want to own one.  You would never get the dusting done!]  Migration from Halifax Co., NC to Rowan Co. by the Coltrain Family.  First Presbyterian Church Baptismal Records 1821-1859.

Blake, Special Projects Archivist, to investigate.  The three of us present this fragmentary list, which may or may not, have been worth the effort expended upon it.  But, like the tallest mountain or the South Pole, it was, challengingly, just there.  (Surnames involved are Creson, Maybury, Butner (4), Eller(6), Samuel, Cathey, Ricks, Cobel, Coble(3), Aronheart, Arenheart, McCann, Enoc , Enox, Fraley (3), Hager?, Lewis, Weant, Warner, Williams, Brown (5), Shavits, Kaler, Hess, Dagonhart, Hendricks, Maybury, Weathrough, Aulbe, Sausman (2), Leflow?, Cauldiron, Fisher, Crider (4), Aph, Moyer, Waller (2), Hallobach, Warnel, Crather, Daken, Rusher, Snider, Arey, Fight, Loring?, Salt, Wire, Fries, Airy (2), Lyerly, Melson, Basinger (2), Frees, Hartman, Catchey and Frederik.

That job is done!  This is all of the RowanCounty Register I have left this year, but undoubtedly I will pick up more copies at various seminars this year, so there will probably be another list next year.  Watch for it and especially fill in the index (Volume 4 of each year) and other missing issues in your collection.   

 

One of the purchasers of many of these issues this year has been the Mid-Continent Library located in Independence, Missouri.  I am pretty sure they have most of the first thirteen years worth at least.  If you live close to this library, you really should check it out, because it has one of the finest collections, a new building, and a willingness to buy new products that their patrons are interested in.  Stop in and see them if you get a chance.  The Kansas City area offers many opportunities to genealogists.  If you don't live close, but you drive by once in a while, you should give them a chance to show you what they have.  I am impressed every time I get a chance to stop there.  Thanks for taking the time to read this newsletter.   Pat from YOGS

Thanks for taking the time to check out our crates.

We really appreciate those people who are willing to give our books a second chance to be helpful.  Who knows?  Maybe the one you have been looking for will be on this crate or the next crate.  Blend this research with your census and courthouse research and see how your family puzzle can grow to be more complete!
