Albert Rowland came from Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. He prepared at the Dickinson Grammar School in Carlisle, Pennsylvania from 1838 to 1839, but then took two years off before becoming a freshman in the College proper in the fall of 1841. Rowland’s student days did not last long as he retired from Dickinson in the spring of 1843; he had in that time become a member of the Belles Lettres Literary Society and had roomed in East College.

Rowland enlisted in the United States Army in 1861 and was killed sometime around 1864.
