(See various James Goings on this page:  https://goyengoinggowengoyneandgone.com/various-james-goings/ )

James Gowen, Jr,  son of James Gowen and Mary “Polly” Keating Gowen, was born about 1767 at Combahee Ferry in Beaufort District, South Carolina.

He, like his brother William Keating Gowen, appears to have received a strong sense of practical values from his parents.

“James Gowen” appeared in the 1800 census of Beaufort District, page 100 as “single, white male, 26-46.” He had accumu­lated 14 slaves.  He was enumerated near the residence of William Keating Gowen and the Harrisons in Prince Williams Parish.

“Jacob M. Gowen,” possibly James Gowen, appeared in the 1820 census of Beaufort District, thus heightening the specula­tion that James Gowen remained in South Carolina.  However, neither James Gowen nor Jacob M. Gowen reappeared in sub­sequent enumerations there.

Of this individual nothing more is known, however it is believed that he had at least one son.
