(Note:  Not too far away, in Stafford County, Virginia, John Gowing, William Gowing, and James Gowing are serving in the militia in that county. (See William Gowing’s page:  https://goyengoinggowengoyneandgone.com/william-gowing-born-1677/ ).  There is no evidence at this point they are related to each other, but they are close to the same age, and all serving in the militia, so it is a possibility to keep open that they were related in some way – brothers/cousins possibly – at this point it is difficult to know without a Y-DNA match to someone who can definitively link their line via documentation with this particular line).
