Historically, our familly reunion was held annually in Owensboro, Kentucky, the closest place to it's origin. The birth of the reunion resulted from the children of Henry and Mary Rowan, who thought it would bring sunshine into their mother's life by requesting all of her family, their children and as many relatives as possible to meet at her home on a certain day for dinner. This was the beginning of the Rowan Family Reunion, which was held at Sutherland Station, Kentucky in 1896. The family later decided to come together annually during the third weekend of August. It was changed to include the cities of Louisville and Indianapolis, agreeing to a rotation among the three sites. With relatives located throughout the country, it was decided a family website would enhance our ability to share information throughout the years. Visit the Photo Album page that contains pictures of past reunions and special events. News about our family can be found on the Family News page. Additional photos will be included in the albums as more become available. We welcome your comments and suggestions for improving our website using our Contact Us page.
