In September 1938 the family of Francis D. Brinton of Oermead Estates, West Chester, Pennsylvania, in preparation of writing the genealogy of Mrs. Brinton's family were seeking data of the Rowland, Parker and Fisher families of Lewes.
Sarah Rowland was the grandmother of of Mrs Brinton, but information on this branch are missing and local historians of 1938 Lewes deny that her ancestor blocked the path of the the patriots duty.
