Hi, I am not the original person you were looking for but I am interested in the Gowens of Brooklyn. specifically I am trying to connect Lawrence/Ellen (Coughlin) Gowen to Patrick/Mary Bridget (Keating) Gowen, Parents of Vincent J Gowen and Thomas J Gowen. It seems that Your Lawrence G. had a Michael Gowen on his probate record as well as on his immigration paperwork. Patrick G. similarly had Michael Gowen on both his probate and immigration paperwork. It looks like both Patrick G. and Lawrence G. were from Cork Ireland even possibly Ballyhooly. I wonder how the three were connected. I would appreciate any help I could get.
