Robert Cowan

  • Birth 21 Oct 1838 Eckhart Mines, Allegany County, Maryland, USA
  • Death 27 Nov 1903 Wheeling, Ohio County, West Virginia, USA
  • Burial Wheeling, Ohio County, West Virginia, USA
  • Memorial ID 33297920

Robert was the son of Clementine (Scherrer) and John Cowan, who were both born in Scotland. He married Katherine (or Catherine) Goodwin, 4 July 1857, in Allegany County, Maryland.

The 1890 Veteran Census in Wheeling shows that Robert served in the Civil War: Captain, Co G, 2nd Maryland Infantry (16 Aug 1861-7 Nov 1864) and later Captain, Co D, 2nd Maryland Infantry (11 Mar 1865-29 May 1865). His death notice in the Wheeling Daily Intelligencer referred to him as Captain Robert Cowan, so he apparently was known locally as a veteran.

As of 1910, seven of Robert and Katherine's ten children were living: Charles G, Robert F, Jeanette [later Hoblitzell], Albert H, Catherine C [later Creutzburg], Elizabeth V [later Balzer], and Lester L.

Robert's Ohio County death certificate states that he was buried 29 Nov 1903 in Greenwood Cemetery. Katherine survived him by 32 years and was later buried there, too.
