•  "William H. Fowler was born 1813 in Virginia, he probably came to Tennessee and then to Madison County, between 1832 and 1835 because his first son was born in Tennessee in 1832. He settled on land that is now on Walt Whitman Road. He married, Rosanah (Rosa) Elkins (date not known). Rosanah was born 1814 in Tennessee. They are both buried in Concord cemetery. His headstone is next to the oldest in the cemetery. He died in 1869, she in 1883. Inscriptions, one on each of their stones states: Joined the Cumberland Presbyterian Church 1847.
     The Concord Presbyterian Church house burned 1873 destroying all records, but according to older members, William H. Fowler donated the land for the Church and old part of the cemetery. Concord cemetery is one of the few cemeteries in the county that charges no fees for burial plots. The patrons of the cemetery donate and a Bar-B-Cue is held each year the 4th of July as a fund-raiser for the cemetery." - Sizemore
