* Earl Cowan's Home Page for The Cowan Family*

Updated January 8, 2001

Currently researching the Surnames COWAN, HOOPER, SKILES, OSWALD, VANNORT, HOULT, HAYMOND
I've been working on my branch of my family tree and I'm about to start looking for the rest of the tree branches. I'll give a brief outline and if it looks familiar to anyone, I'd like to exchange information

My GGGG Grandfather
Patrick Cowan b.abt 1735 in Ireland, m. Catherine Sweeney

Notes for Patrick
Birth: Patrick Cowan found in the Religeous Census of 1766 in County Down listed as Catholic. Records found at Public Records Office Belfast by Josephine Holden.

Children of Patrick and Catherine
1. Mary Cowan, born in Ireland
2. Robert Patrick Cowan, b. abt. 1766 in Ireland
3. James Cowan, d. abt. 1818

Robert Patrick Cowan, m. Melvina Mary Newport abt. 1789 in West Newton, Westmoreland co. PA

Children of Robert Patrick and Melvina Cowan
1. James Cowan, b.abt. 1791
2. Patrick Cowan, b. Aug 17, 1794
3. William Cowan, b. 1798
4. John Cowan, b. 1799
5. Robert Cowan, b. 1802
6. Melvina Cowan, b. 1804
7. Arthur Cowan, b. 1807
8. Isaac Cowan, b. Jul 11, 1808 ...(my line)
9. Rosa Cowan b. abt. 1810
10. Betsy Cowan, b.abt. 1812

Isaac Cowan was my GG Grandfather, his son Marmaduke was my G Grandfather, his son John William Cowan was my Grandfather. I'd like to find information on any descendants of Patrick and Catherine. I'm probably 90% complete on Isaac's family.
Best Regards
Earl Cowan
