Emack Rowzie

Confederate Memoranda on John Rowzie, Great Falls, Virginia. February 10, 1862

John Rowzie.-Arrested February 10, 1862, for getting drunk and fighting at Herndon; aged fifty-seven: born in Loudoun, Va.; lives near Great Falls, one mile from the river. Commenced life an overseer; now owns a plantation and negroes. His three negro men are hired to officers in the Confederate Army. Says all his dealings have been with the Confederate Army. He has refused to deal with the U. S. Army. He is represented to me by several highly respectable witnesses as a true Southern man. I hand in with this a letter of Lieutenant [George M.] Emack, who was aided to cross the Potomac by Rowzie, and General Stuart's order sending him here. I think Howzie is a true Southern man and has been sufficiently punished for his offense. I recommend his discharge on taking the oath of allegiance. I think although he is too old to be a soldier he would be a valuable man as a manager of hands.
