I am looking to find anyone with a connection to Abel Cowan. I would like to know if any one knows or has information regarding the slaves he owned. I found out that Abel Cowan did own my 3rd great-grandparents James and Hannah Cowan. Abel willed them to his daughter Maria Cowan. I found an online a copy of the Abel's estate probate records. In the 1870 census you can find James and Hannah still living next to Maria Cowan-Kridner. Any information would be helpful no matter how small.
