Coward Family Genealogy Forum
In reference to your inquiry of John Coward in Hawkins County, Tennessee, it could be possible that John is a son of Joel Coward (ab 1760-1819) of Marlboro Co., SC and Anson Co., NC.
Joel Coward moves to Hawkins County TN about 1803/5 from Marlboro Co., SC and dies there in 1819. He moves there with his second wife Anna Johnson. Joel and Anna were married in Richmond County, NC in 1797. Before that I find Joel in the 1790 census of Anson County, NC and it reads Joel Coward 1-4-1 In the 1800 census of Marlboro Co., SC it shows Joel Coward 4-2-1-1-0 for males and 1-0-0-1-0 for females. From this you can tell he probably had children from a previous marriage. I also found a listing in a Tennessee book showing a militia company Loudeback Co. 1810 with a James Coward and Joel Coward, Jr. listed. I think these are his sons also. I don't have any real proof of this but just trying to piece it together. Maybe it will give you a different direction to work on since you said the other did not work. Hope this will help.
