    Notes:

    Excerpt from "Descendants of George Rowles" by Ann Moloney Lamb:

    George Rowles and Sarah Griffin came to America from the townland of Cloonteen which was located at that time in the civil parish of Doon, which lies in the northeast corner of County Limerick, Ireland, right next to the Tipperary border......

    George and Sarah came on a Norwegian ship from Dublin to New York in the fall of 1852 with their son John and daughter Margaret, and joined their sons Luke and George who had come there earlier with their wives. They were living and working on farms in Easton township, Washington County, which lies along the Hudson River near to the town of Schuylerville and about 35 miles north of Albany. Sarah died about three months after they arrived and in buried near some friends who also came from Cappamore with her. The rest of the Rowles family lived in New York about three and half years more before moving to Waupun, Wisconsin in about early 1856.

    Only one Rowles family was left in Doon after they left, that of Michael Rowles and his wife Bridget Ryan. Michael and Bridget had 7 children between 1845 and 1861, named William, Edward, John, Mary, Alice, George and Bridget but since the family did not emigrate with the others and cannot be traced, we have no idea what became of them.

    All of Rowles family moved to Wisconsin, probably at or near the same time. The most likely route would have been west along the Erie Canal from Albany to Buffalo. The Canal was built in about 1825 under Governor DeWitt Clinton and was called familiarly "Clinton's Ditch". From Burfalo they probably went by boat through the Great Lakes to Wisconsin.

    George married Sarah GRIFFIN Abt 1814. Sarah was born Abt 1795, Doon, Limerick, Ireland; died Abt Sep 1852, Easton, Washington County, New York. [Group Sheet]
