From: "History of Tazewell Co, IL," by Chapman, published 1879:
"Mrs. Kitty Ann McDowell, widow of Rev. James McDowell (deceased) ...Three children bless this marriage with the lady whose name is at the head of this sketch; they were Margaret, Lucy, Joseph W. Mrs. McDowell is a native of Kentucky. She was born in Breckinridge Co. in 1814 and was the daughter of Edward and Lucy Rawlings, who were natives of Kentucky. Mrs. McDowell was married when she was but 16 years old, and left the next day after her marriage, accompanied by her husband to this county, where he had previously visited and built a log cabin. The cabin was of the usual style of the day, and still stands on the old homestead. We give a portrait [photograph] of Mrs. McDowell and would gladly give one of Mr. McDowell, but unfortunately, he never had any kind taken of himself."

"Mrs. McDowell was married 12 Sept. 1830. She has in her possession some very interesting relics. SHE HAS A FAMILY BIBLE THAT WAS HANDED DOWN FROM ONE GENERATION TO ANOTHER FOR 150 YEARS. She also has considerable Continental money of denominations of $20.00 which is a real curiosity to the people of this generation."
