Mr. Rowlett was a farmer in the Cedar Creek community for many
years, raising mostly corn and cotton. Mrs. Rowlett helped him in the
fields as well as being a devoted mother and homemaker. She remembers
when it was nothing to raise twenty bales of cotton a year.
Mrs. Rowlett is a member of Cedar Creek Missionary Baptist Church.
