Dr. Lois Green Carr’s Biographical Files of 17th and 18th Century Marylanders (mens career files and womens career files)
http://msa.maryland.gov/msa/speccol/html/carr.html

From George Bernard Lee, says

carson gibb, phd, author of “a supplement to the early settlers of maryland”, copyright 1997,

one year before chas. brashears book copyright 1998,

researched every entry of early settlers of maryland by gust skordas by comparing the skordas list taken from previous indexes with original records and transcriptions of the records. not only did he add thousands of names to the list but also corrected mistakes in the skordas book. one such mistake appears in his book at page 145, middle col., bottom name – katherine marsham rights by 1664.

He has in his possession the micro film cited by gibb, his source,and it shows katherine marsham assigning her rights to land to another person on the 11th day of march, 1664.

also of interest are the names of the 2 witnesses- richard marsham and robert turner. the name of the assignee, david gowen or bowen or gowing is difficult to determine due to the writing in copies of transcripts made in 1717 and 1725, he believes.

there is no mention of the word “service” or of the date “1670”.

So, she might be a Brent, but there is still no good infomation that she is the daughter of or otherwise related to Giles Brent family.

It appears that John Gowing or Goane may have moved to Maryland some time between 1635 to 1650.  He is noted in the patent below dated Oct 18, 1650, as arriving again in Virginia, this time on Currioman Bay in Westmoreland County, Virginia, at the mouth of Canawoman Creek.  He arrives with several people who are known to have been transported from Maryland to Virginia.  This appears to be a transport of people from the Maryland colony to the colony in Virginia (just across the river, basically).

1659 John Thimblellby will with John Gwanh as 19 yr old witness in MD (Note: this name may or may not be a “Going” type name.  It is close enough to review and see if it shows any evidence of being a Going variation or an error in transcription somewhere along the way.  There may be a Gwanh family that this actually belongs to, so this may not be a “Going” at all, but worth reviewing).

==O==
Pvt. Enoch Goings of Company G, 22nd Virginia Cavalry Regiment was captured and confined at Point Lookout.

Of the camp Wayne McFarland wrote:

“Point Lookout Prisoner of War Camp was established after the Battle of Gettysburg to incarcerate Confederate prisoners. It was in operation from August 1863 through June 1865. Being only five feet above sea lev-el, it was located on approximately 30 acres of leveled land at the southern tip of Maryland, in St. Mary’s County, and surrounded by water on three sides by the Chesapeake Bay and Potomac River. It was the largest Union prison camp for Confederates.
Before the war, Point Lookout was a fashionable resort hotel and a summer bathing place with over a hundred cottages where the elite spent their leisure time. In 1862, with erection of additional buildings, it became a military hospital for the care of union soldiers, an im-prisonment for Maryland citizens who were Southern sympathizers, as well as a supply depot for the Army of the Potomac. In August 1863, the large building with outbuildings arranged in spoke fashion (Hammond Hos-pital), became the care center for wounded/sick Con-federate prisoners as well as for union men.

During the two year span of operation, Point Lookout saw approx. 52,000 POWs pass through her gates. These were military and civilian, men, women, and children. It’s also inter-esting to note that the youngest POW at Point Lookout was Baby Perkins. He was born there. His mother was captured at the Battle of Spot-sylvania with her artillery unit.

Prison conditions were deplorable. Rations were below mini-mal, causing scurvy and malnutrition. Prisoners ate rats and raw fish. It’s recorded that one hungry Reb-el devoured a raw seagull that had been washed ashore. Soap skim and trash peelings were often eaten when found. Lice, disease, and chronic diarrhea often resulted in an infectious death. Prisoners were deprived of ade-quate clothing, and often had no shoes in winter or, only one blanket among 16 or more housed in old, worn, torn, discarded union sibley tents. Even the Point’s wea-ther played havoc with the prisoners. Because of it’s lo-cation, it’s extremely cold with icy wind in the winter and a smoldering sun reflecting off the barren sand in summer was blinding. High water often flooded the tents in the camp area. The undrained marshes bred mosquitoes. Malaria, typhoid fever and smallpox was common. The brackish water supply was contaminated by unsanitary camp conditions. There was a deadline about 10′ from the approximate 14′ wooden parapet wall. Anyone caught crossing this line, even to peek through the fence, was shot. Prisoners were also ran-domly shot during the night as they slept, or if they called out from pain.

Mjr. Brady was the Provost Marshall and Maj. Gen. Benjamin “Beast” Butler would review the prison camp. Many times he galloped through the crowd of men, hit-ting them as he sped by. The sixty gun USS Minnesota was within a short distance from the shore to guard the prisoners.”

Although it is estimated that over 14,000 prisoners died at Pt. Lookout, at present only a near 3,384 are ac-counted for as buried in the Point Lookout cemetery. Their graves have been moved twice since the original burial. They now rest in a mass grave under an 85′ tow-ering obelisk monument erected by the federal govern-ment. This was the first monument to Confederate sol-diers! Huge bronze tablets circling this monument de-pict names of those so far recorded. Also in this well kept cemetery is a smaller 25′ monument erected by the state of Maryland to the memory of the prisoners.”

==O==
Eleanor Brundick wrote on October 8, 2002:

“I am trying to solve the mystery of the Gowan connec-tion to my ancestors, Thomas Wright and Rebecca Har-ris, who lived in Somerset Co. Maryland and were mar-ried before 1747. They named one son Gowan Wright. They named a daughter Mary Wright, b. 1747, and she named one of her sons Thomas Patrick Gowan White and another son Gowan White. Gowan Wright’s daugh-ter Anne Wright married her first cousin Thomas Patrick Gowan White and they passed the name on.”
