1705 Alexander Gowen of Stafford Co, Va

Alexander Gowen b. 1705 – d. bef. Feb 1775,

Spouses:

married to Sophia (unk maiden name, she also appears to have used the name Scythe) – Stafford Va till 1739, Orange Co NC 1753, Fairfax 1768-74, Pittsylvania Co 1773-75

Parents:

William Gowing b. abt 1682 – 1725 m. Catherine “Patterson”

Children:

Daniel Gowing b. abt 1735 (Note:  listed in probate as a buyer at estate, and living with Suffiah after Alexander’s death).  
David Gowing b. abt 1738 (Note: other possible parents for David are Peter Gowing and Isabell)
Sophia Gowing Jr b. abt 1739 (Note:  listed in probate as buyer, and as Suffiah Jr in some documents).  
Alexander Gowen Jr b. abt 1742 – d. ?  (Note:  listed as buyer in probate and living next to Suffiah after Alexander Gowen’s death)
Ursula Gowen b. abt 1745 – d. ? , m. to Johnathan Tyra  (Note:  Not confirmed yet). 
John Goyen b. abt 1748 (Note: maybe a child of Alexander – listed as buyer in probate, and living next to Suffiah after Alexander Gowen’s death.  The confusing thing about the probate is that he is named “John Going Jr” which may mean this is actually Alexander Gowen’s nephew (son of John Going and Mary Keith Going)).  
Jesse Gowing b. abt abt 1750 (Note:  listed living next to Suffiah after Alexander’s death).  
Sherwood Gowing b. abt abt 1748-58  (Note:  Transactions in 1800 and 1814 state that Sherwood Gowing is son of Suffiah, BUT this may be the son of Suffiah Gowing Jr since the transactions are in 1800 and 1814).

(Note:  The above children are assumed to be the children of Alexander Gowen.  There are no documents found at this point that directly say – “son of Alexander” – so these children are based on circumstantial evidence).  

Siblings:

Ambrose Gowen b. 1703 – after 1774, m. ? (confirmed child of William b. 1682)
Susannah Gowen b. 1707- d. ?, m. ? (confirmed child of William b. 1682)

Other potential children in Stafford County, Va (of John Going b. 1680, William Going b. 1682, or James Going b. 1683) – potential siblings or first/close cousins:

The clusters of Going families that lived nearby in the 1750s were:

1) John Going b. about 1700 who married Mary Keith – his family lived in Lunenburg County, Virginia in the 1750s – in an area that later became Mecklenburg County, Virginia (This appears to be the John Going who was the son of William Going b. abt 1681 of Stafford County, Virginia).
2)  Drury Going and James Going who lived in Brunswick County, Virginia that later becomes Greensville County, Virginia.  (The parental line of Drury and James Going is unknown).
3) Edward Going, Michael Going, Thomas Going, and Joseph Going who were living further south in Granville County, North Carolina around the Tar River and Taylor’s Creek area (this appears to the be group of Going’s who came from Henrico and Hanover County, Virginia).
4) Alexander Going and his family who were living in the Orange County, North Carolina area.  (Alexander Going was another child of William Going b. 1681 of Stafford County, Virginia).
5)  William Gowen and his family who lived in the Bedford County,Virginia area.  (The parental line of this William Gowen is unknown).
6) William Going m. to Anna Statia Sullivan, Moses Going, and Aaron Going living in Goochland County, Virginia.  (The parental line of this William Going is unknown).
7) William Gowen and his family that lived in the “Grassy Creek” area of Granville County, North Carolina.  (The parental line of the “Grassy Creek” Going family is unknown).

(Note re Going/Gowen lines:  At least some of the Going/Gowen lines appear to have come out of Gloucester County and New Kent County, Virginia.  Unfortunately, records before the 1860s in Gloucester County, Virginia, and New Kent County, Virginia, have been destroyed.  Some state-wide records prior to the 1860s from those counties, for land grants, indicate that some Going families were living in those counties.  But since the county records were destroyed, it might not be possible to piece together where several of the above Going lines came from).

Alexander Gowing was born about 1705 to 1715 to William Gowing and his wife Catherine.  Alexander’s father, William Gowing dies about 1725-1726 – the will and inventory are listed in the index of Stafford County’s Will Book K.  The index has survived, but the book itself is missing, so there is currently no way to read the actual will and inventory for William Gowing – so no way to verify all the heirs he listed in his will, or that were listed in his probate paperwork – fortunately though, his wife, Catherine (who remarried to a “Patterson” after William’s death) left a will and probate that was located in Prince William County, Virginia, that lists her heirs (it is unknown if William Gowing was married before Catherine, so it is possible he had more heirs that are not listed in Catherine’s will and probate).

Gowen Manuscript INFO:

Alexander Gowen first appeared in the records of nearby Orange County, North Carolina in September 1753, according to”Orange County, North Carolina Court Minutes, 1753‑1761,” Book 1, by Weynette Parks Haun.

On February 10, 1757 “Alexander Gowin” was a chain-carrier on a land survey in Orange County, according to “The Granville District of North Carolina, 1748-1763, Abstract of Land Grants.”  Orange County was created from Granville District in 1752.

Alexander Gowen was a “sworn chain carrier” on a patent survey January 26, 1758, according to Patent Book 14, page 327.

On July 25, 1760 “Alexander Gowing” received a patent to 248 acres in Orange County “in the parish of St. Matthew, on the north side of Dan River adjoining Mayo’s line,” according to Patent Book 14, page 407.

On October 6, 1761, “Alexander Gowen” was identified as a landowner in Orange County on Hogan’s Branch, according to Patent Book 12, page 7.

The November 1763 Orange County Court minutes show Alexander Gowen filed a complaint against William Gowen, regarded as his nephew, according to “Orange County, North Carolina Abstracts of the Minutes of the Court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions of September 1752‑August 1766” by Ruth Herndon Shields.

In 1773, a petition for the partition of the north part of Orange County carried the signatures of Alexander Gowen, Sr, Alexander Gowen, Emos [Amos] Gowen, Daniel Gowen and John Gowen, according to “The Colonial Records of North Caro-lina, 1771‑1775,” Vol. 9, by Sanders.

It is believed that Alexander Gowen removed to Rutherford County North Carolina about 1781 to join his son, William Goyne who had moved there about 10 years earlier.  “Alexander Going” appeared on the Rutherford County, North Carolina tax list in Capt. Whitesides District in 1782.  He owned no land.  Rutherford County was created in 1779.
It is believed that Alexander Gowen died about 1783.

Daniel Gowen                  born about 1735
William Gowen              born about 1740
Alexander Gowen, Jr.    born about 1742
Amos Gowen    born about 1744
