The Journal of The Genealogical Society of Rowan County (North Carolina) publishes material of genealogical significance relating to Old Rowan County, North Carolina. North Carolina created Rowan County in 1753 from Anson County. Subsequently, between 1770 and 1836, Surry, Iredell, Davidson, and Davie counties were cut from Rowan. Material from these counties may be accepted for publication in the Journal.
