Comments:My 2nd Great grandfather was Richard Dickey Cowan, born in 1783, in Lincoln County N.C. He was a bound boy, as his father died when R.D. was a young child. A lady taught him to read when he was a child, using the Bible. R.D. was an influential adult according to Lincoln County Court records. He married Hannah Seitz. He fought in the War of 1812, earning land in the Missouri territory, where he, his wife and children moved to around 1815. He was an early Missouri Legislator. Hannah died and R.D. Cowan did not remarry [for 16 yrs.] until he finished raising his and Hannahs' children. He then married Susanna Waller. I am descended through Susanna & Richard's son, Richard Dickey Cowan Jr. born in S.E. Missouri in 1837. Please contact me if you have any information on Richard Dickey Cowan, b. 1783 in Lincoln Co., N.C. Thank you.

His grandfather, Sidney Turner Abernethy, was a resident of Gaston County in the 1860 census but had moved to Mecklenburg County by 1870.

Comments:To Whom It May Concern,
I am Barry H. Beattie of San Marcos, San Diego County, CA and I was a cousin and good friend of Catherine Lucille Beattie Helms a twin. We spent many years working on genealogy for our Beattie Family Lineage together.
The last time I heard anything about her was from one of her daughters that used Catherine's e-mail address to contact me. She informed me that Catherine has had a stroke and is currently in a coma in the hospital.
Just recently, Warren Jeffery "Jeff" Johnston, another Cousin of Gaston Co., Gastonia found me on the internet and he indicated that both Catherine and her husband, Arnold, of Charlotte, NC are deceased.
I would dearly like to get in contact with some one that can get me in contact with her family because I know that with all her love, effort and research, she never completed a family genealogy journal.
I have been doing research along with Catherine for about 20 years and I have put together two journals for my Beattie and Stroup Family Lineage. I am hoping to contact a relative of Catherine's to determined if they are interested in getting a CD of these two journals.

Comments:I'm glad to have discovered your most interesting website. I enjoyed reading the comments and inquiries of so many searchers for geneology information about ancestors from the Lincoln-Gaston Counties area. I have been acquiring information about my mother's people, both maternal and paternal sides...and it only leads me to yearn for more. I am the daughter of Kate Cameron Hines Johnson. Mother's parents were William Walter Hines (often referred to as "W.W.") and Elizabeth (Lizzie)Cown (Cowan) Arney. On the Hines side I am descended from the Summerow, as well as Rudisill families. My grandmother, Lizzie Arney, was descended from Christian Arney, Sr., who served in the Revolutionary War, and who lived in Gaston, later Lincoln County. Her mother was Mary Chunn, descended from Chunns of Rowan County, as well as Cowans and Hydes. Of course, I am very interested in information about any of these families. Mother died in April, 2008 at the age of 97, only shy of 98 by a month (May 19, 1910 was her birthdate).
I'll be sending in my application for membership in the Gaston Lincoln Genealogical Society tomorrow!
PS My dad was Edgar Lee Johnson of Granite Falls, NC, so Caldwell, Alexander, and Catawba Counties are territories I'm researching, too!

Now, that I'm beginning to discover it I'm enjoying seeing so many of those familiar names (from elementary-high school) go back in time. Turns out that most of my family was from points west (Cleveland, Rutherford, Henderson). The one exception is the Crouses from Gaston/Lincoln. My gr grandmother Fanny Etta Crouse died young so I'm having trouble getting very far in that line. Think I'll be treating myself to membership for Christmas. Keep up the good work.

Mary and an infant son died shortly after the move and R.D. Cowan remained a widower until his & Mary's children were
grown. Dickey, as he was known, then married my 2nd great grandmother, Susanna Landers, the Widow Waller. Please contact me if you have any information about R.D. Cowan.

Comments:Thank you for visiting our website and the wonderful comments that make my work worthwhile.

There are a couple of questions I've been working on for years and I thought I'd throw one of them out, maybe some of you will know the answer:

James Proctor married Margaret Neely "Peggy" Whitworth.

In 1850, James and Margaret were enumerated in Cleveland County, NC. James was a farmer and they lived only two houses away from his mother.

By 1860 James and Peggy had added three children to their family and were living in the Craigeville Post Office area of Gaston County, NC. They lived next door to Peggy's brother William and his family. Members of her grandmother's Craft family also lived nearby.

From North Carolina Troops, A Roster, by Weymouth C Jordan states (Company G, 34th Regiment of NC Troops): James A Proctor, Private, was born in Rutherford County and resided in Lincoln County where he was by occupation a farmer prior to enlisting in Lincoln County at age 33, on or about 30 September 1861. He was captured at Falling Waters, Maryland, 14 July 1863 and confined at Old Capitol Prison, Washington, DC, then transferred to Point Lookout, Maryland on 8 August 1863. He was transferred to Elmira, New York 16 August 1864, and paroled at Elmira on 9 February 1865, at which time he was transferred to Boulware's Wharf, James River, Virginia, where he was received on or about 21 February 1865 for exchange.

He is also represented in the same set of books as having enlisted in Lincoln County in Company E, 34th Regiment, on 11 September 1861, and having discharged 15 July 1862 by reason of asthma and dyspepsia.

James' death was apparently under suspicious circumstances. On her pension application in 1901, Peggy states James was "killed" in 1872. However, the in the Lincoln County Coroner's Inquest files located at the Archives in Raleigh, NC, (CR 060.928.1) I found a receipt which states "Lincoln County, To David Boyles, Esq, For attending on the jury Held over the Body of James Proctor Decd His services five dollars $5.00, April 26 1869". Was James Proctor who died in 1869 the same James A Proctor who was married to Peggy?

I believe they were one and the same. Our James was not with his family when the 1870 Federal Cenus was enumerated Margaret and her children were living in the North Brook post office section of the Laurel Hill township of Lincoln County, NC.

I have heard thru the genealogy grapevine that James may have been killed somewhere near the Kadesh Church (edge of Cleveland and Lincoln County) by a "Washburn fellow". Does anyone know if if this is true? Can anyone point me toward resources to prove or disprove as I have yet to find anything past the coroner's report.

Comments:You have an amazing web site. Hopefully through this site I can learn a little more about my early ancestors and help me clear up a few questions I have about them.
Mt GreatGGG Grandfather was John Glen (1726-1828) of Lincoln County NC, (Born near Londonderry Ireland), who was married to Elizabeth Spratt, second to Jane McLean, and then third to Mary Grissom. I descended from the marriage of John and Jane through their son David who was born in NC in 1780. David married Elizabeth Grissom which I would assume was related to his Step-Mom Mary Grissom.

I would be interested in hearing from anyone who could maybe fill me in a little on the North Carolina Glenn’s of this line. I do know that many of John Glen's children move from NC to Tennessee and other points west sometime prior to 1850. Others I am told remained in North and South Carolina. I have very little information on David Glenn other than he moved to Tennesee and died their around 1860. Why did he move to Tennessee?. Then again his Step-Mom may also be his Mother In-Law. I may have answered my own question. I wish I knew more bout him.
I’m also a big Civil War buff and am very interested in learning about distant cousins who fought in that war and with who. I was so far able to confirm 2 who were in the famed “Bethel Regiment” , the 11th NC Infantry.

If you have any information you can share or have web links that may help me, send to:

Then I find he joined the 16th regiment from Gaston County. He later is said to have deserted in 1865. Can you please help me find out where there farm was, If he came back to Gaston Co. after the war, if he was hung, inprisoned, defected to the North, or just whatever happened to him. In 1880 the census shows that his father John Brown is now 80 years old and living in Shelby, N.C. His son, Jonas is now 21. Help

Comments:I understand from someone who knows something about Lincoln County past that there are a goodly number of tombstones with the surname McKee in Lincoln County.

I am a member of Family Tree DNA, which seeks matches for the purposes of genealogy. I am interested in hearing from anyone who knows anything about the surname McKee.
