Since the above posting, I have found that Wm. Fowler bc 1767,(bro. of Mordecai b1788 NC), m Rebecca Rowland c1785 in SC, dau. of Wm. Rowland will of 1804 SC. Son Fowler m dau. of Samuel T. (could be Thompson, Thomas, etc. not necessarily Thornton.) Still not sure of Father of Wm. & Mordecai, but could be Joseph Fowler, son of Godfrey Fowler II or Sampson, NC line, James line, etc.?
