|James Rowland and Susan Elizabeth had four children, Glen Franklin, Ella, Sallie and Susan. Records found at Bays Mountain's Steadman Farmstead, list the children of James and Susan Rowland, and also the children of their son Glen Franklin. |
James Rowland and Susan Elizabeth Whetsel Brown's grandson, Ray Rowland, was a United Methodist minister, and a Chaplain in the U.S. Army.
James, as the widower of Susan Elizabeth, was among the heirs of Paulser Whetsel and Sarah Dove Whetsel, who signed off on land sold to Kingsport, Waterworks, Inc., in 1917. Descendants of Paulser and Sarah believe this land was on Bays Mt., Sullivan Co., where the Whetsel family lived. Paulser was the father-in-law of James Rowland.
