I am looking for my g-g grandfather William H Rowe. He was born abt 1856, married Mary A Melton in 1876. 4 Sons, John Rufus, Alvin, William Calvin, THomas J, and a daughter Lue Vinnie. I can not find his parents, however, in the 1880 census he was in Carroll County, and it states his father was born in Tennessee. Any help would be appreciated about the family.

Thank you

Is there some reason you feel that the following William is not William H? Five Melton families live nearby.

1860 Census, Carroll Co, District 18

John [W] Rowe 25 Tenant 100 TN
Elizabeth A [Martin, m. Aug 16, 1855] 25 NC
Susan 2 TN

Sarah [Walker] Rowe 42 farming 400 500 TN
Elizabeth 19 TN
Sarah 15 TN
Wright 13 TN

In the 1870 census Mary A Melton (age 8) lives near Sarah Rowe. I do not see John W and Elizabeth, or William in the 1870. John W was a Civil War vet. I have a little more if you think this might be Wm H. holleyps@yahoo.com
