I believe Edward Thomas Rowlands was the father of Perry Rowland who was born in Noble or Washington County, Ohio in 1829, then moved to Hutchinson, Kansas in 1877.  I am having a hard time finding information on Edward Rowlands and Eliza Kidd's marriage, and Perry Rowlands birth.

Thank you. I have all that information. I am needing confirmation that Edward Rowlands was the father of Perry Rowland. I found in the Ohio tract book that Edward was issued land in 1835, and I haven't found anything between 1835 and the 1850 census.  Edward had three sons, Perry, Charles and Edward. He always went to work on a crew ship to Europe during the winter months, and one spring he didn't return. Family history says that shortly after his wife Eliza died of TB. The three boys went to different families. This is also noted in the book History of Darke County from it's Earliest Settlement to the Present. (1900)
