John Cowan

  • Birth 3 Nov 1800 Scotland
  • Death 28 Apr 1876 Wheeling, Ohio County, West Virginia, USA
  • Burial Frostburg, Allegany County, Maryland, USA
  • Memorial ID 82047206

Mr. Cowan was a coal miner and operator for many years in Allegany Co MD and Ohio Co WV. He operated mines near Eckhart from 1830 to 1855, when he moved to Wheeling, WV, and continued in the coal business. He married Clementine Sherrer, probably around 1827, and they had seven known children:

Agnes [Beveridge]
Jenett or Janet [Hurley]
Elizabeth
Hurley
Katherine [McLeyne or McClain]
Robert
Charles T

Mr. Cowan was buried here when the cemetery belonged to IOOF #49 in Frostburg, so I assume that he belonged to the Odd Fellows.
