1764 May – Court: suit, May 1764, Orange, North Carolina, USA. Paul Heinegg suggests that John Gowen, Jr. was the “John Going” who was sued in Orange County, North Carolina in May 1764, according to Orange County Court Minutes. Additionally he suggests that John Gowen, Jr. was “John Going” who was verbally excoriated by Col. John Hogan of Orange County. The colonel declared in 1765 that he “knew John Going well and that he was a trifling, contemptible fellow, a gambler, and a mulatto . . . he was then insolvent and probably is so still, if alive,” according to “Claims of British Merchants after the Revolutionary War.” Orange Co, NC. http://ourberryfamily.com/berry/21207.htm

1776 – James Goyne was first called to serve in the Fairfield County, South Carolina militia in 1776. His granddaughter, Susan Goynes Dickerson, stated in a newspaper interview in 1905 that her grandfather and his four brothers had served in the Revolution. This suggests that a mix of Going brothers and cousins moved from Orange County, North Carolina to Fairfield County, South Carolina by 1776.

From Gowen Manuscript:  http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~gowenrf/Gowenms094.htm

About 1773, the inhabitants of the northern part of Orange County petitioned the North Carolina House of Burgesses to partition off their area as a separate county, according to “Colonial Records of North Carolina.” The petition was granted in 1777 with the creation of Caswell County. In 1791 Caswell County was divided to create Person County. Their petition read:

“To His Excellency Josiah Martin, Esquire, Captain General, Governor in and over the Province of No. Carolina, the Honorable Council and Gentlemen of the House of Burgesses:

The Petition of the North Part of Orange County Humbly Sheweth that whereas by the large Extent of the County, it renders it very Burdensome to attend Courts, General Musters etc, We pray that a line Be­ginning where Granville County line corners on the Virga. line, then Running South with Granville County line 25 miles, then west to Guilford line, then with Guilford line North to the Virginia line, then sd. line East to the first station. And your Petitioners as in Duty Bound shall ever pray.”

Among the 148 men who signed the 1773 petition were the signatures of Alexander Gowen, John Gowen, Daniel Gowen, Emas Gowen and Alexander Gowen, Sr.

Nancy Powell Gowan was enumerated as the head of a household in the 1840 census of Simpson County, page 219.

The family was enumerated as:

“Gowin, Nancy white female 20-30
white male 15-20
white male 10-15
white male 10-15
white male 5-10
white male 5-10
white female 0-5
white female 50-60”

The “white female 50-60” is probably Patience Powell, the mother of Nancy Powell Gowan

When Meredith Gowan came calling on Nancy Powell, her family disapproved. When he asked for her hand in marriage, James and patience were appalled…she was only 14! But true love won out, and they were married in 1825 in North Carolina. Shortly afterward, Meredith Gowan announced plans to move to Mississippi…more consternation for the Powells.

By 1830, Meredith Gowan had moved his family to Copiah County, Mississippi where they were enumerated in the 1830 census. Nancy Powell Gowen was listed as the mother of five and still had not reached her 20th birthday!

Meredith Gowan died there in March 1838, according to Phillip Alan Gowan of Nashville, and Nancy Powell Gowan became the head of a household of eight people…at the age of 27! She died in Simpson County, Mississippi in 1855 at the age of 44.

Children born to Meredith Gowan and Nancy Powell Gowan include:

[daughter] born about 1825
James A. Gowan born January 26, 1826

John C. Gowan born about 1828
Ann Gowan born about 1830
Ebenezer Jahue Gowan born about 1833
Henry Gowan born about 1834
Thomas Robert Gowan born about 1836

Nancy Powell Gowan completed her role as executrix of the estate of Meredith Gowan in 1848 in Simpson County, Mississippi. A study of her file in Drawer 95, Case 4014, Simpson County records might reveal more genealogical data. She died there in 1855.

Alexander Gowan, believed to be the seventh child of John Gowan, was born in North Carolina in 1816, according to Phillip Alan Gowen. Isaac Gowan stated that his parents were born in North Carolina in the 1800 census enumeration. However the American Historical Society in its “History of Alabama,” page 672, states that “Alexander Gowan was a native of South Carolina,” probably quoting Dr. Jesse Earl Gowan, a grandson, a less reliable source.

Alexander Gowan was married about 1835 in South Carolina to Martha McCarter, according to “History of Alabama.” According to Phillip Alan Gowan he was married about 1834 in Attala County, Mississippi to Martha Samantha Nichols. She was born in Georgia in 1817.
