Biography of B. F. Rowland, M. D.

Important and varied interests claim the time and attention of Dr. B. F. Rowland, a leading druggist of Ochelata, who also figures prominently in financial circles as Vice President of the Ochelata State Bank, and he is likewise the owner of a good farm in this vicinity, his business affairs being most judiciously managed. He was born in Moniteau County, Missouri, June 7, 1866, his parents being Powhatan and Mary W. (Longdon) Rowland, the latter a daughter of a circuit rider in Missouri, who was one of the well known ministers of the early days. B. F. Rowland’s father engaged in general merchandising at Jamestown, Missouri, but in 1849 he joined the rush of gold seekers to California, where he won success in the mines, later returning to Missouri. In 1878 he moved to Kansas, where he passed away in 1902, at the venerable age of eighty-six, having long survived the mother, whose demise occurred in Kansas, in 1886, when she was sixty-six years of age.
