BIOGRAPHY

REUBEN ROWLEY was from the town of Berlin and enlisted in August, 1862, and enrolled in Company C. His age was 40, and yet he looked and appeared much younger* Was physically and mentally equipped for the calling he was about to engage in, there being only five older recruits in this company. Comrade Rowley was equal to the demands the service required and acquitted himself well on all occasions. He served his full term and was mustered out with his company and regiment July 21, 1863. Returned home and resumed his usual avocation and his duties as a citizen, thankful that he had volunteered and served his country when called. He has been dead a number of years but just when and where cannot say.
