From the Book by Dorothy (Rowe) Lampkin: Bill Napier and Jack Rowe ran for J.P. in the "30's and Jack Rowe won. He was a Democrat and Bill was a Republican. Troy Rowe, brother of Dorothy, said he remembers going to some trials with grandpa and the trial was held under a Brush Arbor at Tullahassee, Oklahoma. Arlie Rowe, brother of Dorothy, said Jack Rowe was born in Dardenelle, Arkansas, but the 1920 census says Missouri. Arlie said Jack Rowe's funeral was the biggest of that time with both black and white people attending. It was held at Vans Lake School, west of Porter, Oklahoma. Jack Row was married three times. The last wife was Sally Alice Pickett. They were married June 10, 1946, at Porter, Oklahoma. He outlived all his wives.
More from the Book by Dorothy (Rowe) Lampkin: Marion Jack Rowe took Sissy Johnson from Arkansas in a hurry and they married at Braggs, Oklahoma. Jack's son, Arlie Rowe, said that he thought that she might have been another mans wife, and that they ran away together. He said that Grandpa Jack ran a sawmill in Indian Territory and later in Oklahoma. He also ran a store in Hanes, Oklahoma located at the junction to Porter off Highway 69. After WW1, he loaded the sawmill on a flatcar and took it down to the white pines to cut soft wood near McAlexter, Oklahoma. No one would buy the soft wood so Grandpa Jack lost everything he had. He moved to Tullahassee and became a constable or judge. Grandpa Jack, Frank, Jay, Huylsey;, Okie and Arlie Rowe made whiskey on the island called "The Jack Rowe Ford". It was located on the Arkansas River near Vanns Lake. (Information source was Jerry Lee Row--son of Arlie Rowe).
