Born in New Jersey about 1820, James R. Rowland relocated to Charles City County, Virginia, with his wife Hannah (b. ca. 1821) and three children, to continue his trade as a carpenter. In 1861, he received a commission as 1st lieutenant in the Virginia militia. After a year of service, he was honorably discharged because there were not enough men to make up a company. Rowland died sometime after 1878.
