States: Georgia: Henry
I am interested in information on William B. Cowan, Jonathan Cowan, and Elijah Cowan who were born in Bertie County, NC and migrated to Henry Co., GA. Elijah was in Henry County in the 1830 Census, Jonathan in 1840. William was born abt 1820, so he could be the 20-30 year old living with Elijah in the 1840 census. I believe Jonathan, who m Sarah Sowell in 1800 in Bertie Co., NC, was the father of both Elijah and William, but I can't prove it. I am a descendant of William, who m Sarah Lester in 1853 and moved to Orange Co., FL where he died in 1897. DNA links me to both Elijah and Jonathan, so I know I am in the right family. I would appreciate any help.
