Overview

Hugh Cowan secured a warrant for land on Licking Creek in Bedford County (now Fulton County) in 1785, on the same day as his presumed kinsman Person:Samuel Cowan (17) secured a warrant for land at nearby Cowan's Gap. [1]

Key:
Green Hexagon, Hugh Cowan's Land
(very approximate (best guess)
Yellow Hexagon, Samuel Cowan's Land
Blue line, Licking Creek
Green line, LIttle Auguinet Creek
Light blue line, Conochogue Creek
Purple line, Conodoguinet Creek
Red dashed line, Forbes Road
References
  1. We presume that Samuel and Hugh were kinsmen, as it seems unlikely that two unrelated Cowans would appear on the same day in the warrant office to take out land warrants. They were most likely brothers, but there seems to be little to directly show their actual relation.
