NOTES: Nathan's birthplace of Tennessee reflects information contained in
the 1850 Gwinnett County census, but is questionable. Nathan and Elizabeth
Fowler are said to be buried in the Fowler-Gresham Cemetery in Gwinnett County,
but the cemetery has been paved over. There are graves for a Hester and James
Johnson in the Johnson cemetery in Gwinnett County, but we are not 100%
sure if this is our Hester, although birth dates match Hester and James Johnson
in the 1870 Gwinnett census. John Fowler is said to be buried at Shadnor
Baptist Church Cemetery in South Fulton (formerly Campbell) County, but no grave
has been found. All his children moved to Cleburne Co., AL. Reuben Fowler is
buried at Appalachee Baptist Church Cemetery in Gwinnett County. Most of
his children remained in that area of Georgia. Zephania(h) Fowler is buried
somewhere in Tennessee where he died during the Civil War with a fatal case
of measles. He enlisted as a Private in Capt. Looney's Co., Lawton's
Cavalry (Co. I, 2nd Regt., Ga. Volunteer Cavalry). Zeph moved to Fayette Co. by
1860.  Many of his descendants stayed in the southwest Atlanta area and are buried
in South Fulton, Douglas and Fayette Counties. His widow remarried to Green
B. (Greenberry) McFalls. Kelly Fowler died in Montgomery, Alabama, during
the Civil War. He gave his county of residence as Jackson County. His service
record says he was a courier with Co. H, 43rd Ga. Inf. Regt. His burial
place is unknown. Martha Ann Fowler Kimbrell and her husband moved to Randolph
Co., AL and then back to Gwinnett. Nathan's second wife is thought to be his
son's mother-in-law (Sarah Johnson, mother of Frances Ann Johnson), who lived
next door to Nathan and Elizabeth in 1850 Gwinnett. Neither Nathan nor Elizabeth
appear in the 1860 Gwinnett census, although all children except Zephaniah,
Marion, Matilda and Martha Ann were still there.
