The Rowe Family, Plymouth Pioneers
This is a photo of the pioneer James Rowe family who came here from Platteville, Wis. They farmed their first years on a farm a mile south of the Plymouth Presbyterian Church.
This farm is now owned by Harlan Rowe [Harlan Rowe died in April of 1975], a grandson, and is the home of Mr. and Mrs. William Timmins [Bill & Shirley moved to LeMars several years ago (1988). He died in September 2001. Shirley is the current owner.] Mrs. Timmins is a great-granddaughter. [The land is farmed by Steven Rowe a great-great-grandson. The building site was sold several years ago, but I don’t know anything about who bought it.]
