Just reaching out to see if anyone might know if such a village or town once existed in the early 1800's in the fair county of Fulton, Illinois. I've not heard of it - but I am researching someone who's Illinois, Deaths and Stillbirths Index, 1916-1947 record says he was born in "Cowville, Illinois".
I did a lookup online and found reference to Cowling, Illinois in Wabash County being called that and thought that was his birth County - however I found another record that distinctly states Fulton County. ??? If you've heard of this or know a town that might have been called that back in the early - mid 1800's I'd appreciate a reply! I know he was born in 1866 and in 1870 was living in Bernadotte. Thanks!!
