I have just finished rereading your message and am especially interested in Sarah (Sally) Cowan, b. 2/27/1778, and married to Pleasant Chitwood, b.5/9/1775 as they are my fifth great grandparents. Pleasant to James Chitwood, b.1798/TN..James to Noah Chitwood, b.1821/TN..Noah Chitwood to my maternal grandfather, George H. Chitwood, b.1853-1861/Indiana.George's daughter, my mother, Essie M. Chitwood, b.1908/MO married my father, Curtis R. Cowan in
I received a query re: a Henderson Chitwood who's grandmother was said to be Sarah Cowan Chitwod. The query, a MO. descendant of Henderson Chitwood said that Henderson & my great grandfather, Richard Dickey Cowan (Jr) b. 1836/MO. served in the same command & later were elected officials in adjoining counties.
Do you have any info on Sarah (Sally) Cowan Chitwood's line or any other suggestions for me as I attempt to put this puzzle together?
