searching for the line of a John COWAN b. 1828 poss. in Tennessee. Searching for a needle in a hay stack on this one. This is my daughter in laws family and have very little to go by other that he m. a Jane BEAN on 30 May 1850 in Illinois.
The line I'm searching for is Martha Adaline b.1853.
Other children listed to this marrage of William and Jane are:
William J. b.1861
Martha b.1857
Sarah J 1854
James A b.1856
Absolom b.1864
Mary b.1866
I have been able to track John in the 1870,1860,1850 census but nonething lists his father's place of birth.
thanks for any help and help on scoring brownie points w/ my daughter in law:)
