Gower Severns had land on Beech Fork of Salt River near Davis' Station

Here are few more references to him that I have found

There is a Gawer Soverins listed next to John Soverins in book listing land grants: Old Kentucky Entries and Deeds; Jefferson Entries; page 289
for 400 acres on 2-21-1780 and 1,000 acres on 6-24-1780; both on Beech Fk.
"In 1785, Linn (Benjamin Lynn) acquired a patent to one thousand acres of land on the south side of the Beech Fork of Salt River, six miles southwest of Bardstown (Kentucky), a tract to which he had previously purchased a pre-emption right from his brother-in-law, Gower Severns. "

From Nelson county Deeds book two
P 26 12 August 1788 James Davis, wife Hannah to John Reed, 20 pounds, 400 acs., waters of Beech Fork adj Gowin Severn's near Davis Station.

From Nelson county Deeds book four
10 August 1790 - Samuel Ray, wife Mary, to Edward William, 100 pounds, 300 ac. south side of Beech Fork, adj. John Leaucaus, John Richey, Abraham Hornback, Benjamin Lynn, Frances McBride, Ebenezer Miller, James Fanuel, and Gower Severns.
