Surnames: GOWEN
Are there any Gibson County descendants of Frederick GOWEN who resided near Buena Vista in Gibson County. He was born 1797 and married 1818 in North Carolina to Nancy COMER. The family migrated to Kentucky and eventually settled in Gibson. I am descended from his son Larken who resided in Warrick County. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

My husband is also a descendant of Frederick and Nancy Comer Gowen. His ancestor was their son William R., who married Amanda Henton before 1843 in Patrick Co., VA, and then married Polly Brock March 27, 1868, in Adair Co., KY.

Have you found Frederick and Nancy on the 1870 census anywhere? I have not found them. There is a Mary Highnight, age 40, in their household in 1850. Do you know the connection? Do you know either of their parents? Do you know anything about them being Melungeons?

I will be happy to share more.
