WARREN ROWELL was born in New Hampshire, December 28, 1818; was the sixth son of the Hon. Charles Rowell. He
married in 1844, and landed in Homer township in 1853. Mr. Rowell belongs to the Advent Christian church, and is
a democrat in politics. Warren Rowell took the claim where he now resides in April, 1853. He has a beautiful farm
consisting of 240 acres of land, with pure spring water, which flows through the yard. He designs making stock-raising
his principal business hereafter. He brought the first horse team, first yoke of oxen and first cow into the valley.
Always at his post of duty, though not a leader, it can be truly said he was a worker actively engaged in all good
work, faithful to his Master's cause, ever sustaining his wife in her ministerial life, con tributing largely to
the temperance and Sunday-school work, and, by his industry and frugality upon the farm, furnished the means to
give his family a collegiate education, which he made not by speculation, but by the sweat of his brow.
