I have a George Henry Risler/RISSLER who came to Phila.,PA in 1749 from Rottendam. My direct line of Risslers came to IN from VA,WV in early 1800's.
Are you working on the RISLER line? If so, contact me and we can perhaps help each other. Thanks. MaryLou

Gordon was my 5th great grandfather. Our family has passed down the following story:

Oral history per Roy Rowland b 1885, “...who fought in the Revolutionary War in Virginia and signed the Oath of Fidelity of Prince George’s Company in Maryland on Feb. 223, 1778."

As far as his ancestry, my grandfather said our Rowlands are Welsh.

Hope this is new information for you.
