I am trying to find out more about Marion C McDowell (b 1830 VA) and Samuel McDowell (b 1806 KY). Both were in Franklin in 1850 but cannot figure out how they connect to each other or to other McDowells in the area.
Marion had a son Woodford, so I suspect they may connect to the McDowell brothers who were in Sugar Creek.
Any guidance at all would be greatly appreciated! Many thanks :-)
