I would like to establish contact with anyone descended from William Cowan (1796-1831), son of immigrant Hector Cowan of Hobart, Delaware Co., NY, and Mary Chisholm, daughter of William Chisholm of So. Kortright, Delaware Co. They had the following children, all born in Delaware County:
1. Hector 1817-1865, m. Esther Nesbett.
2. William Jr 1821-1873, unmarried.
3. John 1824-1897, m. Elizabeth Agnes Jones
4. Elizabeth “Betsy” Ann 1824-1900, m. Amos J. Howard
5. Frances “Fannie” J. 1826-1914, m. John W. Evans
6. Isabella 1831-1852.

I have more information on some of the children, who all moved west except Hector, and the mother, who moved to Canada, remarried, and then moved to Ohio. I have very little information about William.
