Unknown Persons Gallery
We're pleased (if mystified) to feature this gallery of old photographs containing unknown persons. Your Rowan County Public Library has come into these photos through donations or other means, but we have no idea who any of the folks in the pictures are!
So, help us and your community out: Take a look and see if you recognize anybody. If you have any information to share that might help identify an unknown person, feel free to contact us and let our genealogy librarian know so we can celebrate the discovery!
