Looking for information about the family of Clark Cowan. All I know about him is that he and his wife were born in Missouri, but were in Topeka by 1882, when they had their daughter, Elizabeth Belle Cowan.
Elizabeth was in Parker County, TX by November 1900, when she married Charles P. Burnside. Sometime between 1903-1920, Elizabeth and Charles divorced (I have not found a 1910 census for her yet), and she had married Mack Allmon by 1920.
Clark *may* have had another daughter that moved to Canada. I've seen information regarding one of Elizabeth's daughters visiting an aunt in Canada in 1960, but I don't know what side of the family that aunt was on.
