Rowlands/Rolands in Washington & Smyth Co VA

Surnames: Rowland Roland Rolen Sutton
Looking for the family of Abel Rowland/Roland b abt 1780? 1790?

He is listed in the 1830 Washington Co VA census, near Ryland Rowland/Roland, who appears to be his son.

Other sons may have been John, Michael, & William, all of whom are on later census records, after Washington Co became Smyth Co Va.

William Rowland/Roland married Susannah Sutton 1833 in Smyth Co VA. I am in contact with a descendent of this couple.

In the 1838 tax records for Smyth Co VA Abel, Michael, Ryland, John, Michael & William Rowland/Roland are all listed.

Abel disappears after 1838, but the sons remained. I have William Rowland/Roland/Rolen in census records up to 1860 in Smyth Co VA.

The last name was spelled creatively on records, often varying from year to year!

If you are connected with this family please let me know.
