Thank you very much. This appears to be the right family. Elizabeth Cowan, a sister of my gg-grandfather, married Amos J. Howard in 1861. I know that she had a stepson named Marion. This leaves open the question of the identity of Mary M., four years older than Amos, who is listed after the children. I think wives were usually listed second, but maybe not always. Maybe she is his unmarried sister.
