RED RIVER COUNTY, TEXAS

The original Red River County was so large that 36 Texas counties were created out of that vast region along the border of Oklahoma. It was the first county recognized by the Republic of Texas in 1836. Clarksville, the county seat, was established in 1833 by Capt. James Clark. A two-room log cabin was built on the town square to serve as the courthouse.

Very Little is told of the Gowen family in the sketchy county records of Red River County. Gene Bowers, Clarksville, identified as the “unofficial” historian of Red River County in 1959, was able to furnish very litlle information. He served as county clerk for that county for 25 years before his retirement and the same length term was served by his father and grandfather before him in the same office. He recorded:

“Wooten, the shingle man, shot and killed Gowing out at Stone’s old mill on Wednesday, September 7, 1881.”

The “Clarksville Northern-Standard,” published by Col. Charles DeMorse in Clarksville from 1842 until 1885, carried a news story in the December 29, 1882 edition of the paper bearing on the murder. The newspaper spelled the victim’s name as “Goyne.”

The District Court convicted A.J. Wootten on manslaughter charges on December 12, 1882, according to the legal records of the county, and Judge R. R. Games of the Sixth Judicial District sentenced him to two years in the state penitentiary.

Whether the murder victim was a relative of Jeremiah B. Nunley Gowen is unknown. Mrs. F. L. Woodward of Rox-ton, Texas reported that on Major S. P. Gowan attended a ball held in Clarksville on October 24, 1836. The first house was built in Clarksville in 1834 and it became a town in 1837.
