The 1850 census lists a 63 yr old William H Gowen living with her and her husband. However after many searches I can only find a William Henry Gowen which would be the right age for her father, but I cannot find where he had a daugh named Lydia.

Lydia Gowen b. abt 1823 in TN d. unknown, married to John Lynch b. abt 1820 Orange Co Indiana, d. abt 1880

I am looking for any indication that William Henry Gowen is Lydia's father. Any help would be appreciated.
