Notes for Peter Franklin Rowland:

Elizabeth's first husband was killed in the Civil War. Interestinly enough, Pete wears his Corps medal from the war. He was probably proud of his service, but his record doesn't bear it out. He spent much of his tour hospitalized with illness and appears to have left before his enlistment was up.
