Researching descendants of Thomas Coward (b abt 1784), Isaac Coward (b. Feb 22 1791), and John Coward (b. Feb 7, 1894) who came to Knox and Anderson County TN before or during the War of 1812. All three brothers are in Anderson County by 1822.
Want to know the following:
What is Thomas Coward (b. 1784) wife's maiden name? Her first name is Charlotte.
Where is Thomas Coward and wife Charlotte buried?
Who is first wife of John Coward (b. Feb 7 1794)? His second wife is Sarah Yarnell. John had a son William Coward who served in War with Mexico who was born before his marriage to Sarah Yarnell. Was John (1794) married twice or was this son adopted? Also any information on illegitimate child begotten by John Coward (1794) and daughter of John Garner in 1818/1819 would be appreciated.
Also would like to have proof that Benjamin Coward is father of these three brothers and do they have any other siblings? Who did Old Benjamin marry? Did Old Benjamin migrate to TN with his sons?
My direct line is Thomas Coward, so this is the line I am most interested in. Any information concerning Thomas's descendants especially his daughters would be appreciated.
