Isaac Gowan, son of Jeremiah Gowan and Mary “Polly” Workman Gowan, was born in Greene County in 1827, according to the research of Brenda Walker Summers.  Later he was living in Paris, Illinois in Edgar County, according to Hardin Walker, his cousin.

 

Hardin Walker was born in Greene County in 1828.  He was a soldier in the Mexican War in 1847, according to Brenda Walker Summers, a great-granddaughter.  He was also a soldier in the Civil War and left a diary recording his experiences.  On the cover of the diary he specified that in the event of his death, he wanted the diary to go to his wife, Mariah Elizabeth Bockover Walker “presently living in Paris, Illinois.”  He also specified that if his wife was not able to receive the diary that it was to go to his cousin, Isaac Gowan of the same town.

 

Brenda Walker Summers wrote, “I think the Gowan connection came from Judith Burch Gowan Walker, the mother of Hardin Walker.  She worked with Sanford Gowan and Christopher Burch to take care of Jeremiah’s sons, both under 14 years of age [when he died].  Apparently the mother of Judith Burch Gowan Walker was a Burch, and then somehow the Gowan name came into the family, perhaps through marriage.

Stephen Gowin, widower and father of 10 children, was a resident of Ripley County, Indiana when he was remarried about 1848 to Mrs. Eliza Walton, widow of John Walton who died in 1845.

 

In 1853 Stephen Gowin removed to Hendricks County, Indiana.  He died there in 1880.

 

Children born to Stephen Gowin and Eliza Walton Gowin include:

 

              Love J. Gowin                                           born about 1850

Cynthia Gowin                                                    born about 1859

Anna Gowin                                                        born about 1863

 

“History of Hendricks County, Indiana” which was pub-lished in 1885, mentioned these families, pp. 695-696:

 

“Jonathan Walton was born in Washington County, Pa., Jan. 9, 1837, a son of John and Eliza Walton, who were both natives of Pennsylvania.  With their four sons they moved to Ripley County, Indiana in the summer of 1837, where the father died and was buried Jan. 9, 1845.  His widow, some years later, married Stephen Gowin and to this union were born six children--Love J., deceased; Mrs. Adaline Slavins, of Kansas; Oliver and James B., residing in this township; Mrs. Cynthia A. Robbins, of Missouri, and Mrs. Anna Crose, of this township.

 

The children by her former marriage were--Warren, of Ripley County; William, a member of the Ninety-ninth Indiana Infantry, died in the service; Amos, served the Seventh Indiana Infantry, now living in Madison County, Iowa, and Jonathan, our subject. The family moved to Hendricks County in 1853, locating on Section 34, where Mr. Gowin died in the spring of 1880.  His widow is living in this township with her youngest daughter, Mrs. Anna Crose.

 

Jonathan Walton lived with his mother and step-father till his marriage to Miss Cynthia Robbins, which occurred Oct. 9, 1859.  After his marriage he made his home on Section 34, on part of the John  Robbins homestead.  He has prospered in his agricultural pursuits, and now owns a farm of 188 acres, also a fine residence property in North Salem.  He is a member of North Salem Lodge, No. 158, I.O.O.F., and politically he is a Republican.  To Mr. and Mrs. Walton have been born three children—Emma C., their eldest, died at the age of eighteen months; John Gavin, born March, 1863, and Bertha, born in November, 1870.  Mrs. Walton's grandparents came to this county in 1833.  Her father was born in North Carolina, June 16, 1809, and was there married in June, 1829, to Lydia Par-sons, who was born Dec. 27, 1808.  They had eleven children, of whom six are living--Mrs. Mary Jones, of Eel River Town-ship; Mrs. Martha Davis, same township; Mrs. Cynthia Wal-ton, this township; William, this township; Mrs. Susan Rob-bins and Mrs. Josephine Davis, of Eel River Township.  Those deceased are—Newton Catherine, John and Barnabas.  John Robbins was a prominent citizen of this county and ser-ved satisfactorily as County Commissioner several terms.  His death occurred March 5, 1881.  His widow is living on the old homestead with her son-in-law, Jonathan Walton, which has been her home for fifty-two years.

 

Larry Slavens of Des Moines, Iowa wrote June 11, 2000 seeking information about his family.  He wrote:

 

“My great-grandmother was Emily Adeline Gowin from Hen-dricks County, and I've been trying to find more infor-mation on her family.  In a census listing she appears as Emma, and in the marriage register as Emily.  She was born July 10, 1852 in Hendricks County to Stephen Gowin and Elizabeth Derry Wal-ton Gowin.  Both Stephen and Elizabeth had been married be-fore.  In his first marriage Stephen Gowin had 10 children, and Elizabeth in her first marriage had five children.  Together they had five more.

 

Emily Adeline Gowin was married to William Slavens in Hen-dricks County October 27, 1872.  She died January 8, 1932 in Earlham, Iowa. 

 

William Slavens and Adeline Gowin Slavens left Hendricks County for a few years early in their marriage, living in Ne-braska and Oklahoma, before returning to North Salem, Indi-ana.  They moved to Waukee, Iowa in 1914, and then to Earl-ham in March 1917 to be nearer several of their sons.  Wil-liam was killed in a train accident within a couple weeks of moving to town, and both he and Adeline are buried in the Earlham Cemetery.

 

Adeline's obituary states she was survived by a sister, Annie Gowin Crose of Paris, Illinois and brothers Buck Gowin and Oliver Gowin of Danville, Indiana.  This matches up with cen-sus listings of the family.

 

There are a number of other pieces of information that raise questions.  In the 1870 Hendricks County census, Stephen Gowin is listed as 72 and born in Virginia, and several of the children are listed-- but not their mother Eliza Gowin.  In 1880, Stephen Gowin is gone, but Eliza Gowin is back.  Was she just missed in 1870?  Off with some other relative? 

 

In the Hendricks County cemetery listings, there's a Stephen Gowin buried in Turner Cemetery in 1880, but Oliver Gowin and Buck Gowin and wives, and "Mother" whose birthdate would correspond to Eliza's age in the 1880 census, are buried in Fairview Cemetery.  Why would the parents be buried in separate cemeteries?  Were they divorced or separated, and that's why they're not in the 1870 census together?  .

 

In the 1870 census are two siblings that evidently preceded Adeline Gowin in death--Alaxander Gowin and Cyntha Gow-in.  What became of them-- and did the enumerator spell their names right?  I also note that in the 1870 census the sister of Adeline Gowin, Annie Gowin is listed as Eliza Gowin, and then in 1880 as Ann E. Gowin.

 

In 1900, Jesse Slavens, the son of William Slavens and Ade-line Gowin Slavens, was living in Adair County, Iowa, with his cousin John Walton.  I've been trying to pin down the con-nection between my great-grandparents and the Waltons.  I haven't found that link yet, but I've found other information to make me believe it was on the Gowin side. 

 

In the Madison Township Cemetery, Madison County, Iowa, are a number of Gowin burials, several with Indiana connec-tions.  It appears that several are the children of A. S. and Eliza A. Gowin  There's also a William Gowin, born in 1847 in Ripley County, Indiana, who would appear to be a little too old to be the son of A. S. and Eliza Gowen.

 

Finally, there's an Amos Walton and Lettitia Gowin Walton. Lettitia is listed as a daughter of Allen and Eliza Logan Gowin.  Amos is listed as a veteran of Company B, 7th Indiana Infantry Regiment in the Civil War.  In a Civil War database, Amos Walton is listed with the unit and with a hometown of New Winchester, Indiana, which is in Hendricks County.” 

 

Cynthia E. Gowin was married December 7, 1876 to John C. Robbins, according to Hendricks County Marriage Book 8, page 354, Bond No. 3969.  Children born to John Robbins and Cynthia A. Gowin Robbins include a daughter born April 12, 1889.

Minnie Etta Hattaway, twin daughter of Alfred A.

Of her family Sherla J. Alberola wrote July 22, 1999:

 

"The members of the family of George and Nancy were always described as Mulatto or Colored, but today Charlotte's descendants are white.  In Missaukee County they had nine children.  One died in infancy.  Minnie Etta and all of the children were listed in the 1910 census as "mulatto," but my grandfather, Frank Hughes was listed as white.  He had light skin and blue eyes and was born of white parents, but he is listed as "Colored" on his marriage registration.  Perhaps it was still illegal for whites to marry coloreds when he married Minnie Etta, so he listed himself as "Colored."

 

"They lived in a small farming community near Cadillac, Michigan composed mostly of Dutch immigrants.  Everybody, except for a few Indian families was white.  My grandmother always said that we were part Indian, but she didn't know how much or what kind.  However, in later years, her brother told us that they were part Portuguese.  Whatever they were, others in the community considered them "mixed."  We will probably never know what they really were as all of the children have died of various kinds of cancer.  They were always ashamed of their brownish skin, and I remember that my grandmother avoided the sun.

 

Minnie Etta died of diabetes, but she was also crippled with arthritis.  My mother remembers that she had a "club foot" and wore a special shoe.  Minnie Etta's twin brother, John married a Mulatto woman, Rachel A. Winburn December 25, 1895 in Berrien County.  He died there in 1951.  Twins seemed to run in this family.  I hope that some of this will tie in with somebody else's family and be helpful to them.

The following section of Jackson County, Indiana data was researched by Dr. Jerry Lee Goen, 13107 Coker Road, Shawnee, Oklahoma, 74804, lgoen@obunix.okbu.edu

 

When time permits, the research of Dr. Goen will be merged with narratives of Jackson County which have been developed by other members of the Foundation.

 

The 1830 Census lists five Gowen families in Jackson County:  Berry Gowen, in Salt Creek Township page 219, John M. Gowen in Carr Township page 228, Simeon Gowern in Salt Creek page 219, Claibourn Gayon in Salt Creek Township on page 219, and Clairbourn Gowers Senior in Salt Creek Township page 219.  It is assumed that since four of these families lived near each other, as evidenced by there all being on the same page of the census, that they are related. 

 

Because Salt Creek Township borders on Carr Township, it is possible that the fifth family was also related to the other four.  Finally a William Gonn was also listed in the 1830 census in Jackson County in Redding Township on page 246.

 

The 1840 Census lists the following seven families in Jackson County:  Elizabeth Gowens [or Gowins] on page 23, Elisha Gowings on page 9, Stephen Gowens on page 11, William Gowens on page 11, Claiburn Gowings on page 50,  John W. Gowings on page 9, and George W. Gowens [or Gowins] on page 34.

Stephen Goen's obituary appeared in the "Daily Republican" newspaper in Seymour, Indiana, Vol XX, No. 284, Saturday, September 26, 1896:

 

 "Stephen Goens, an old pioneer and respected citizen, of Carr township, died Thursday, September 24, 1896, with paralysis aged 62."

 

"Charlotte Allen Goen's obituary was published in the “Brownstown Banner” Wednesday, Oct 1, 1924:

 

"Mrs. Charlotte Goens died suddenly at the home of her son, Thomas Goens, in Seymour Friday morning, aged 83 years. 

 

Several years ago Mrs. Goens suffered a stroke of paralysis from which she never fully recovered.  Friday morning about 4:30 o'clock her son noticed her breathing heavily and a physician was summoned, but she died before he reached her side.  Coroner Dick Meyer was notified and at the inquest rendered a verdict that her death was caused by the infirmities of old age.

 

She was born in Lawrence County January 11, 1836, and moved to Jackson county a number of years ago.  For the past five years she has been making her home with her children.

 

She is survived by eight sons and one daughter, Thomas and Homer of Seymour; William N., of Freetown; Daniel B., Louis, Franklin and Milton, of Columbus; Marshall, of Medora; Theodore, of Muncie; Mrs. Nancy Jane Butler, of Flemings.  She also leaves on sister, Mrs. Lydia E. Arthur of near Clearspring, and two brothers, Ezekiel and Frank (assumed to be "of Franklin")Franklin.

 

Funeral services in charge of the Rev. L. W. Collar, were conducted at the residence Sunday morning at 10 o'clock.  Burial in the Heighton Hill cemetery near Medora."

 

The marriage license for John W. Goens to Ida C. Beem was noted in “The Brownstown Banner,” Vol. XI, No. 1, on Jan 23, 1879, page 5.

 

The obituary of John W. Goen appeared in the “Brownstown Banner” August 16, 1900: "John W. Goen, a respected farmer living three miles north-east of Medora, died August 13, of a disease supposed to be black erysipelas."

 

The obituary of Ida C. Beem Goen was published in the “Brownstown Banner” of August 10, 1904:

 

“Mrs. Ida C. Goen, widow of the late John Goen of near Vallonia, died in Dr. Hauss' hospital at Sellersburg, Thursday, August 4, 1904.  She had been in poor health for some time and had gone to the hospital for treatment, and it was found necessary to perform an operation, as a last resort.  We understand that Dr. Hauss informed her of the seriousness of the operation, but as there was no hope of her recovery without it, she prepared for to have the operation performed.  She was 43 years, 11 months and 9 days of age.  The remains were brought to the home of her son, Hendricks Goen, at this place, and the funeral services were held Saturday afternoon at the Christian church, after which the remains were taken to Heighton Hill cemetery for interment.  Her death was quite a shock to her many acquaintances in this community."

 

 

General note concerning John W. Goen, Elisha Goen, Crispin Goen, Stephen P. Goen, and Haston Goen.  These men were born in North Carolina with the exception of John W. Goen who was reported to be born in Tennessee.  Most appear in the census records in Hawkins County Tennessee before moving to Jackson and Washington Counties in Indiana.  They lived near to each other in both Tennessee and Indiana and there is some evidence that they carried on commerce with each other.  Elisha was the executor for Crispin.  It is likely that they were brothers or cousins.  Presently there probably is not enough evidence to regard them as brothers but it is not an unreasonable suggestion.  Most, but not all, of their children moved on to other locations by 1870-1880.

Public records and family records indicate the following concerning the descendants of John W. Goen of Jackson County, Indiana.

 

Descendants of John W. Goen

 

Generation No. 1

 

John W. Goen1 was born 1804 in Tenn., and died 1850-1860.  He married Sarah about. 1826.

 

John W. Goen was listed as head of household and had four children listed in the 1840 census.  The children were not named in the 1840 census so we do not know their names directly.  All the other Goen families in Jackson Co., Indiana at that time had no children that match the ages of Stephen Goen and Philip Goen or we can reason out their names from the 1850 census.  Further, Philip lived very close to his father's house as indicated by entries that adjoin in the 1850 census.  Additionally, Stephen also lived near John W. Goen but not as close as Philip.  As a result Stephen and Philip are regarded as children of John W. Goen. 

 

Walter Goen shows up in the Jackson Co. deed book as selling land on Dec 19, 1859.  Walter is probably one of John W. Goen's sons for whom we do not know their names.

 

In the 1840 census John W. Goen had one male listed as under 5 years of age, three boys and one girl under 10 but 5 or more years, and one boy under 15 and 10 or more years.

"Mrs. Gowens," white female, died May 23, 1909 in Bloom-ington, Indiana, according to Monroe County Death Record Book H-19, page 17.  The death date is the same as the birth date above, suggesting that Mrs. C. Richardson Gowens died in childbirth.

Notes for Philip Goen:

The 1850 Census would put his birth in 1832.

 

This family moved to Arkansas where Phillip operated a ferry boat on the Arkansas River for 10 years then moved to Lawrence Co. Missouri.  Here William Harvey marred Ada Emoline Eoff who may have been part Indian.

 

Notes for Matilda Goen:

  Isaac N. Goen               born 1863.

  Mary Jane Goen           born 1866.

 

Stephen Goen (John W.1) was born 1837 in Indiana, and died Sep 24, 1896 in Jackson County, Indiana; probably buried in Heighton Hill Cemetery.  He married Charlet Allen Jun 4, 1855 in Jackson County Indiana, daughter of Lewis Allen and Lydia.

 

Notes for Stephen Goen:

Stephen Goen's birth can be projected back from census data.  However, the 1860 census data indicates that he was 23 years old making his birth year 1837.  The 1880 census data indicates he was 44 years old which would put his birth in 1836. 

 

Stephen Goen bought land from Link Gullian and wife on Sept 7, 1880 for $50.  This sale was recorded in the Jackson Co. deed book "16" page 253.  The land is described as W NW 9, 6, 6, ?? acres and as being in the Butler Addition of Seymour, Indiana.

 

Steven Gowen bought land from William McNeil and wife on April 10, 1882 for $100.  This sale was recorded in the Jackson Co. deed book "18" page 108.  The land is described as NN SW SE 23, 5, 3, 20 acres.

 

Stephen Goen and wife Goen sold land to John H. Mills on Aug. 14, 1883 for $225.  This sale was recorded in the Jackson Co. deed book "19" page 444.  The land is described as 23, 5, 3, 9 acres and as being in Seymour, Indiana.

 

His death can be projected from Jackson Co., Indiana probate records which indicate he died in 1896 assuming that the probate filing was the same year as his death.  The probate entry is dated as filed November 4, 1896 and the court date as November 17, 1896.

 

Stephen Goen's obituary was published in "The Daily Republican" newspaper of Seymour Indiana, Vol XX, No. 284, Sat September 26, 1896.  The paper reports that he died on September 24, 1996 with paralysis aged 62.  This age puts his birth in about 1834 which is slightly at variance with some census data.  His wifes' death was reported in the Brownstown Banner in 1924.

 

Given that his father was John W. Goen and living in Jackson Co., Indiana when he was born, it is reasonable to assume that he lived his whole life in Jackson Co., Indiana.  It was common for the son to name his first born after his father and this further supports the assertion that John W. Goen of 1804 birth was Stephen's father.  The first sons name and the distribution of children in the 1840 census both provide strong support that John W. Goen was Stephen's father.  Of course a family Bible or official birth record would be even more definitive but they do not exist as far as we can tell.

Notes for John Herbert Goen:

He was to old to be drafted for military service in World War II.

He reported his occupation to have included activities ranging from laborer, heavy equipment operator, truck driver, carpenter, and farmer.  He built a log cabin before World War II and lived in it until very shortly before his death.  On the same 40 acres of property that he built the log cabin he built a two story chicken house which would hold 3000 broiler chickens.  The chicken house was completed in the early 1950s and operated most of that decade.  He eventually got out of the broiler business when market structure and technology changed and made it unprofitable.  He converted to raising chickens for eggs for a few years until the market structure and technology for egg production changed.  Before World War II he ran for office once for a township or county position and gave up a political career with his defeat.  He completed a high school education at Clearspring High School and attended one semester at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana.  He enjoyed playing basketball, baseball, and wrestling.  The semester at Indiana University was based on a scholarship for wrestling.  He encouraged his children and grandchildren to address him as "Herb" as opposed to father, dad, or grandpa.  He had considerably more physical strength than average until his later years.  He enjoyed television starting in the 1950s or early 1960s.  Also, he had the experience of flying in an airplane during World War II while he was working at Freeman Field, Seymour, Indiana.  His family attended the Brownstown Nazarine Church, Brownstown, Indiana.

"I remember an old man coming to our house when I was a child.  We called him "Grandpa Hayward."  The last time I saw him was in 1846.  He was then in his 80's.  This man Hayward was the father of James C. Hayward, also a girl named Nancy Hayward who in later years married a man named ‘Edwards.’  It is not known what year these children were born, but it presumed that James Hayward was born about 1820.

 

James C. Hayward and Hannah Marion Fisher were mar-ried in 1843.  Hannah M. Fisher, my sister was born No-vember 23, 1827, in the township of Portage, Allegany County, New York.  To the union were born the following children: William Willard Hayward, March 31, 1845, and Mary Hayward, born November 28, 1846.  In 1849, James Hayward, in the company of two other men, left New York state to go to California where the gold rush was on, and to this day haven't been heard of.  About two years later, Hannah, his wife, and the two children, along with other members of the family, the Fishers, left New York state by cov-ered wagon to Indiana.  They settled in Tippecanoe County.  Hannah was married second to Elijah Hill about 1851, possibly in Livingston County."

In 1896 Isaac Gowen, at age 72 and Susannah Dunn Gowen, at age 66, both entered the Old Soldiers Home at LaFayette, Indiana.  Both died shortly after entering the home, according to Samar Roman.  She wrote, "I have written the home, and they have a record of both entering and their deaths, but that is all."
