In your search for members of the Rowe family, did you ever come across an Edward H. Rowe of Abington Township, PO Lancaster Courthouse? In the 1870 Census, Joseph Massey, age 18 WM, was listed as farm labor? He may have been my G Grandfather. He was from Caroline Co. but does not show up on any Caroline Co. census after 1860. In 1872/73 he and two brothers moved to Clay County, MO.
