Samuel E. Gowing is listed on page 259 of the 1840 Federal Census as living in Houndsfield, Jefferson County, NY.
Can someone tell me the name of his wife and children?
In researching my Cole line I have come across the name of Sally Cole Gowings who was a sister (perhaps step sister or half sister) to Polly (Mary) Cole Cole (b. 1781), the wife of Nathan Cole of Calcium. The names of Sally's children were Gustus, Clairca, Mary, Harrell, Laura, and Rosella.
Is Sally the wife of Samuel E. Gowing?
I suspect that Samuel was living in Champion circa 1874 when he passed away.
