Birth: May 13, 1856
Death: Feb. 23, 1899
New Summerfield
Cherokee County
Texas, USA

John Walter Cowan (Born: 13 May 1856 died: 7 May 1899). He married Drury and Mary Couch's granddaughter, Mary Elizabeth (Mollie) Couch on 24 December 1885. Mary Elizabeth (Molly) Couch was the dauther of Drury and Mary Howell Couch's son, Henry Andrew Couch and his first wife, Ida Holder (born: 1854 died: 1 Oct 1871).

Notice that one side of the gravestone is blank. The reason for this is that after John Walter (J.W.) Cowan died, Mary Elizabeth Couch Cowan married a Mr. Hawes. Mr. Hawes died and Mollie then married Mr. Lewis F. Holcomb. Lewis F. Holcomb's first wife, Arelia M. ____, had died in 1918. Mary Elizabeth (Mollie)Couch Holcomb was buried at McDonald Cemetery in New Summerfield, Texas, where Lewis F. and Arelia M. Holcomb are buried, rather than at the Couch Historical Cemetery where her first husband, J. W. Cowan, is buried.
