Surnames: Gowin, Phillips, Bullard
Elbert Gowin and Celia Phillips were my grandparents. I am currently gathering information on the Phillips and the Gowin line and related lines.

I have recently acquired a substantial bit of Phillips info, but I have run into a roadblock at the father of Elbert Gowin. I know where (and approximately when) he was born and where (and approximately when) he died. His name was Robert B. (or R.B.) Gowin according to information I got from my grandfather before he died. He was born about 1865 in Mt. Enterprise, TX and died about 1932 in Van Zandt County, TX. He is buried in Prairie Springs Cemetery just outside Ben Wheeler in Van Zandt County.

Granddaddy Gowin told me that he thought that R.B.'s father was also named Robert and he was born in Tennessee and was married to a Mary Bullard. But I don't know any birth, death, or marriage details for them; nor do I know whether there were other siblings and much past that.

Any help would be appreciated.....I'll be happy to share any other info that I may have.

H. Earl Gowin
