My 3rd great grandfather, Frelinghisen Hisen Rowlett b: 10/14/1844 in prob Owen Co., KY. d: 3/22/1918 Blount Co., TN.
I can follow his life from 1860 to to his death in 1918. However, from his birth in 1844 to 1860, I cannot locate him.
Here is what I know:
There is an 1880 census for Frelinghisen that states his parents as Joseph William Rowlett and Lucinda (Blackwell) Rowlett. I have not been able to see this particular census. This information comes from my uncle.
Joseph b: 1793 Owen Co., KY d: 1862 in Owen Co., KY
Lucinda b: 1803 Henry Co., KY
Sometime between his birth and 1860, he ends up with William (John) Rowlett and Angeline(a) Rowlett. At this point these become his parents(?) according to other individuals information.
William (John) Rowlett b: est 1818
Angeline(a) b: est 1819
They married 1/24/1836,Wythe Co. VA
By 1857, Angeline(a) had remarried to Jacob Smith. Frelinghisen is listed in this Census as being with them.
I am looking to find out why he wasn't with Joseph and Lucinda? Who were William and Angeline(a)? Where else was he from 1844 to 1860?
If anyone out there has any information, clues, insights on where to look outside of censuses, birth/death/burial/marriage/probate/will/ records I would be very grateful.
