Rownn county was named after the
gentleman whose name heads this article,
Matthew Rowan. He was one of the
colonial governors ntlder the English
crown, and began his administration iu
1753 Ue was never appointed Governor
by the Crown, but succeeded to this office
by virtue of his office as president of the
Council after the death of Gov. Gubriel
Johnson, and first councillor, Nalhantel
Rice. He qualified on the 1st. of Febru
ary, 1753. and held the position until
a a Am s . t
succeeded by liov. Arthur Dobba, tn
1754. j .
The following account has been handed
to us, which was made by Mr, Rowan,
while Counsel to Governor Dobbs. The
fact that there is no ram named in the
hill is a circumstance which we regard
evidence that Mr. Rowan was not only
a good and honored North Carolinian,
but a temperance man as well.
Here is the bill as it appears on a well
