Frank H. Rowe. - Numbered among the enterprising citizens of Oswego County is Frank H. Rowe, who is merchant
and postmaster of New Haven. It is a strange coincidence that Mr. Rowe and his father have been the only citizens

A. and Caroline M. (Willmarth) Rowe.

he conducted a general mercantile business and also served as postmaster. He conducted a business for six years
at Syracuse, N. Y., but later returned to New Haven and retired. He was a Republican, and attended the Congregational
Church. He was a member of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows. His wife died in 1914. Both are buried at New
Haven. Their children were: 1. Frank H., the subject of this sketch. 2. Fred, who lives at Baldwinsville, N. Y.
As a youth, Frank H. Rowe was identified with his father's business interests at New Haven. He is a graduate of
Mexico High School and took a business course in Syracuse. He also was located in business in the latter city for
four years. During his career, Mr. Rowe has farmed for almost six years. He has conducted his present general mercantile
business since 1911 and in the same year was also appointed postmaster.
In 1892 Mr. Rowe was united in marriage with Miss Lottie Keeler, who died at New Haven in 1924. She was the daughter
of Manville and Elizabeth Keeler. He died in 1905 and his wife died in 1912. To Frank H. and Lottie (Keeler) Rowe
