COWAN and MOSES families
Gloucester and Osgoode Townships

March 25, 2004:

I just was told about your site.  I live in Florida but was born and raised
in Ottawa.  My Mother was a Cowan of Gloucester Twsp and her mother was a
daughter of Clark Moses of Osgoode Twsp.

I have spent the last two years collecting data stories and pictures of the
Cowan family from Leitrim ON. I don't know exactly what you like to use on
your site or how it works but if anyone is interested in my research I would
be happy to share it with them.

They are the correct ages to be sons of Clark Moses.

New April 12, 2004: Hi Al. My interest is in the Cowan Family and their relatives - in laws - that would include Evans, Murphy DVS, Pratt, Schofield, Barrett, Rolston, Crete, Hammond, Pollock, Latimer. I know this is a bit of a wild shot but someone reading this may know if there was a Cowan in their family. J. Eldon Green tenaga@tampabay.rr.com
