Husband's General Notes
------------------------------------------------------------
      SOURCES:
      John McDowell moved to Adair County KY about 1816. He is on the Adair
      Co. Tax lists from 1817 for 118 acres in Russell Creek. On May 3, 1821
      he was appointed Attorney to handle any land in KY left by Edward
      Franklin father of wife Phebe. Their children Matthew, Agnes, John,
      George, Elizabeth (born abt 1809 who Married December 7, 1830 Fielding
      Boley son of Vincent Boley), and son Samuel. Matthew was not John and
      Phebe's natural son and he married their daughter Agnes. Elizabeth Boley
      appears on various deeds in Carroll County, Missouri.
      Phoebe signed "her mark" (Adair Co. deed E:448) On 7 Jul 1823, John
      McDowell regestered an ear mark (Adair Order Book D:370)

      descendants by Richared W. Cook

      John McDowell was a State Legislator

      McDowell family was large in Ky. and seems to have been fairly
      important.

      From Eric Gordon:
      I knew that George McDowell did follow the Boleys to Mo. along with the
      Gentry boy and lived very close to James and Fielding in Carroll County
      before Fielding moved up North to Livingston Co., Mo. At least I think
      that it is the same George McDowell. And YES, the McDowells were very
      prominent in Kentucky for many years. I have a Geneaology book printing
      by the McDowell Printing Co.
      I don't know but it could be the same family. I believe that my fathers
      family married into the McDowells in Tennessee. This would be the
      Rippetoe family. A family of casket makers who were widley known for
      there skill in the burying arts for many years. I will have to check on
      that fact though.

      You are unaware if Elizabeth had brothers or sisters? If she was born in
      1817 in Adair County, the Jesse I am researching was born two years
      later in the same county and could possibly be Elizabeths brother...I will
      research in
      some archive databases that I have and get in touch with some other
      contacts and keep you posted...Marcie
      Were you aware that there was a George McDowell born 18 February
      1807 in Adair County, Columbia KY. He married Eleanor Sanders 15
      January 1828 in that same county. They had children John Alfred, Nancy,
      Margaret Ann, Benjamin, Rebecca, Thompson, Julius, Mary Ellen, Emeline.
      I have wondered if possible that Elizabeth, George and Jesse were all
      related as siblings. Marcie
      Just came across a John McDowell who was born about February 1802
      in Greenbrier VA and died 21 September 1879 in Upshur WV...maybe that
      will help you...Marcie
