Seeking more information about this photo and why he was in Columbia City?
My g-grandfather John Albany Rowe came to Canada from Exeter, England where he was born in 1852. I found this photo of him taken in Columbia City, Indiana. It must be before 1900. He lived in Frankfort and Indianapolis and died in Bedford in 1907. He was a stone carver artisan and may have done work on the Whitely courthouse, as he did work on many other Indiana courthouses and monuments. Any additional information or photos, perhaps of the courthouse construction, would be appreciated.
