Notes

  • 1880 Federal Census, Arkansas County, Arkansas, 15 June, page 22B, Hse#154, Fam #163
    Silas Round W M 49  Blacksmith  Indiana Maryland Maryland
    L D Round W F 46 Wife House Keeper  Indiana New York Maryland
    W S Round W F 22 Son  Rafting  Illinois Indiana Indiana
    Ina Mabel Adams W F 7 Granddaughter Kansas Arkansas Illinois

    Note that this census shows Bert (W S) was born in Illinois, as does1900, whereas all subsequent ones, and family information, indicatethat he was born in Kansas.

    The Dixon B. Smith Family History on Ancestry Woirld Tree reports thisIllinois birth place for Bert.
    ID: I18120
    Name: Wilbert S. Rownd
    Sex: M
    Birth: ABT 1858 in Illinois
    Father: Silas Rownd b: ABT 1832
    Mother: Louisa D. (Unknown) b: ABT 1834 in Indiana

    In 1900 the family name is registered as Rowen.

    1900 Federal Census, Arkansas County, Arkansas, 15 June, PrairieTownship, page 144, Hse #181, Fam #183
    Rowen, Bert  Head  W M  Feb 1858  42  Married 13 years IllinoisIndiana Indiana Blacksmith
    Rowen, Francie Wife  W F  Nov 1870  29 Married 13 years  5 children/4living  AR AL AL
    Rowen, Frank  Son  W M  Dec 1888  11
    Rowen, Winona Dau W F  Feb 1890 10  AR IL AR
    Rowen, Earl  Son  W M  Jan 1892  8
    Rowen, Orval  Son  W M  Mar 1899  1
    Rowen, Loula I  Mother  W F  Jan 1834  66 Widow IN NY Maine

    The final entry, Loula I, listed as mother, matches Louisa D, Bert'smother.  The date of birth of January 1834 matches other sourcesputting her birth in 1834.  It is a puzzle why the enumeratorunderstood her name as Loula, and the middle initial as I instead ofD, which we have from family sources.

    Nona's family are living next door to Maggie E McSwain, a older sisterof her husband Bennie D McSwain.  daughter of Phillip K McSwain, andher husband Banjamin F Rowland.  Two doors on the other side of Benand Maggie are tow houses of Padgetts who also came form NorthCarolina, so would be cousins of some sort.  The Padgetts and McSwainswere kin in different ways in North Carolina and some moved toArkansas together.

    Nona's brother Orval married a McSwain also, Iona, a niece of Maggieand Bennie, daughter of Joseph Edward McSwain, a brother of Maggie andBennie.
