Jane Barton Rowley Passes To Her Reward
Jane Barton was born near the village of Poughkeepsie, N.Y., May 23, 1821. A few years later she migrated with her parents to New Jersey and later to Owego, N.Y. On February 8, 1839, she was united in holy wedlock with Wm. Rowley, to which union four daughters were born, all of whom have preceded their mother to their eternal reward with the exception of Mrs. M. Wilsey. Fifty-eight years ago she came with her family to Iowa, settling in Linn County, near Center Point where she has lived ever since. Mrs. Rowley was reared in a christian home and knowing that she herself must make a definite decision for Christ, did so at the age of fifteen years. Mrs. Rowley was probably the oldest communicant of the Methodist Episcopal church in Iowa. She became a member of this denomination when living in Owego, N.Y., eighty-seven years ago and when she moved to Linn County in 1865 transferred her membership to the church at Center Point. She took an active part in church work until a few years ago when she was forced to forego these pleasures. However, she continued to lend her financial support to the cause of the Lord. Mother Rowley was an optimist. Her hundred years have been happy. She was content with life and it was good to her. Lots of women look older at sixty than she did at 103. Mrs. Rowley was a granddaughter of Col. Ethan Allen, who with his small band of Colonial troops captured Fort Ticonderoga during the Revolutionary war. She was also a cousin of Clara Barton, founder of the American Red Cross. She passed to her eternal reward January 28, 1924, at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Marvin Wilsey, where for twenty-five years she has received the tenderest of care, Mrs. Wilsey herself being eighty years of age. She passed the century mark by two years, eight months and five days. As a sheaf ripe unto the harvest she was gathered into the heavenly garner. She is survived by one daughter, eight grand children, ten great grand children and thirteen great, great, grand children. Funeral services were held from the Methodist church Wednesday afternoon, Rev. F.C. Griewe officiating and was largely attended. Interment in the (text incomplete). The floral offerings were many and beautiful (The Center Point Independent, Thursday, January 31, 1924).

Death of One of the Old Pioneers of Southport. Engineer H. E. Jones, of this city, has received notice of the death of his uncle, Seth M. White, of Sandwich, Ill., on March 20. Seth Marvin White was born in Southport, Chemung county, N. Y., February 3, 1810, and lived near the state line on the plank road for many years. In 1861 he moved to Illinois. His father, Dr. Amos Gates White, was an early pioneer in this valley and build the first frame house in Southport. In 1833, he married Miss Sarah Roy, a sister of John A. Roy, a well-known farmer of Seeley Creek. Ehen "Brick" Pomeroy was yet an infant Mr. And Mrs. White took him to their home at the dying request of Mrs. Pomeroy, Mr. White's sister, and brought him up to manhood and Mr. Pomeroy has always held his foster parents in grateful remembrance for their kindness to him in his younger days. They were very exemplary people and "Uncle Seth" and "Aunt Sallie" were know and loved throughout the Seeley creek valley. He leaves a wife and one son, A. G. White, a railroad conductor, with whom his parents have lived for several years. At last accounts Mrs. White was very low and not expected to survive him long. The Sandwich, Ill,. Free Press says: "Mr. White died Friday March 20, at 9 a.m., aged eighty-one years, one month and seventeen days. He was a devoted Christian, having been a member of the Presbyterian church in Southport for twenty years before coming west. He was a very ambitious man, always actively engaged while his health lasted. His life has been an exemplary one. For the past twenty years he had been an . Three years ago last fall he managed to get down town twice in one day, but has never been down since. May 15, 1803, he was made a master Muson in Meteor Lodge, No. 283, F. & A. M., and has been an honored member of that order ever since, being chairman for number of years. It had always been his desire to be buried with the Masonic services. Accordingly, Meteor lodge, No. 283, took charge of the funeral. The services were held from the house Sunday at 2 o'clock, conducted by Rev. H. V. Tull, of the Congregational church, assisted by Rev. H.H. Nye, of the Presbyterian church (obituary).
Mrs. Sarah Roy White, wife of Seth M. White aged seventy-seven years, has died at Sandwich, Ill. The "Free Press" of that city, speaking of her death says; Sarah Roy White was born in Orange county, N.Y., August 22, 1815, and was the fourth child of Alexander and Joana Roy: who moved to Wells, Pa., where they raised a family of nine children, only two of whom are now living. She was married August 22, 1833, to Seth M. White, son of A. G. White, one of the early settlers and first physicians of Chemung county, N.Y. The deceased began her married life at Southport, Chemung county, N.Y., where she lived nearly twenty-seven years. She was the mother of two children, Austin Gates White, the surviving son, at whose home her last days were happily spent, and Julia, a dear little daughter, who in their mature years came to gladden the home and went to the Saviour in babyhood. She united with the State Line Presbyterian church, and was an active and leading member for many years. Came to Sandwich with her husband and son in 1861, sadly leaving church, friends and relatives, but with true Christian spirit, entered on the new life with hope and courage, bravely giving her only child to the defense of his country, and during the dreary years waited, hoped and prayed for his safe return. She united by letter with the Congregational church of Sandwich, and although through delicate health her activity had left her, yet she remained an earnest member to the end, and her life was not void of many good deeds. "Blessed are they who die in the Lord." Mrs. White was the aunt of "Brick" Pomeroy, and taking him when a babe, at the death of his mother, raised him to manhood. She was the sister of John A. Roy, a well-known farmer up the Plank road, and also an aunt of Harvey E. Jones of this city (obituary).

William A. Rozell, a prominent citizen and businessman at Plainfield, Wis., and a member of the G. A. R. Post No 197, was born Dec. 3, 1826 at Jackson, Tioga Co., Pennsylvania. He is the son of James and Lucy (Bryant) Rozell. He was reared in his native State and removed to Wisconsin in 1855, locating in Waushara county and engaged in farming in Plainfield township, which was then in its pioneer condition. At that date, the inhabitants were situated at remote distances and Mr. Rozell passed through all the experiences of a pioneer farmer and followed that occupation until he entered the army. He enlisted Oct. 6, 1864, in Company I, 1st Wisconsin Heavy Artillery, at Berlin, for one year. The battery went from the camp of rendezvous in Wisconsin to Washington, where it was placed in garrison at Fort Farnsworth. The battery reached there in November and the men belonging to the command were drilled in light and heavy artillery tactics and as infantry, being obliged to acquire a knowledge of all military tactics, excepting cavalry. They also performed considerable labor on the fortifications and held themselves in readiness for service in the defense of Washington but happily were not called into service in that direction. It may be added that, in addition to the armament common to artillery service, consisting of heavy siege guns the battery was fully equipped as infantry. At the expiration of the war, Mr. Rozell was mustered out of service, June 26, 1865, at Washington and the command returned to Milwaukee where it disbanded July 3rd following. Nov 4 1862, Mr. Rozell was married to Ellen H. Walker, of Plainfield, and their children are named Harry T., Arthur J., Maggie and Verney. On his return from the army Mr. Rozell resumed his business as a farmer and in 1867 became interested as a merchant at West Plainfield and transacted a prosperous business. In 1882 he built a brick store in the village of Plainfield where he operated about two years. He sold that establishment in 1884 and resumed operations at West Plainfield, where he was transacting business on a large scale until disaster overtook him. Nov 20 1886, his extensive building was burned, entailing on him a loss of about $6,000. He immediately rebuilt and is once more in promising circumstances. He has been prominent in the management of local affairs and has held various school and town offices (Soldiers Album of Personal Records, 1888, pp. 691-692).
