Query:I'm researching my gggrandfather's family, his name was William Cowden. Verbal family history states that his father was George Cowden, although I haven't yet found documentation of that. I do have the following info which puts my William Cowden in Wood Co. (specifically Freedom Twp.).

The Mormon Church in Salt Lake City has record of William & Susan's marriage. Batch #M513461, Dates 1820-1867, Source Call #0409699 V. 1-4, 4B, Type: Film:

 William Cowden md. 07AUG1856 Wood, Ohio to Susana Adams
1850 Census - Freedom Tp., Wood Co., OH - #1113/1137
Cowden, Mary 55y PA
   , Hezekiah 22y OH
   , William 15y OH
   , Mary  12y OH
1860 OH Census - Freedom Twp., Wood Co., OH
Cowden, George 46y Farmer 3000/500  PA
   , Sarah A. 33y    NY
   , A(unreadable) 11y    OH Female
   , George 10y    OH
   , Jeremiah(?) 02    OH
Cowden, William 26y Farmer 1500/100  OH
   , Susan  24 Farmer 1500/100  OH
   , Mary  02y    OH

In addition, there is a land patent on file for Hezekiah Cowden, the land was located in Isabella Co., MI. William & Susan (Adams) Cowden later relocated to Isabella Co., MI. It doesn't appear that Hezekiah spent amount of time in Isabella Co., MI due to the lack of documentation of him. I do know that Hezekiah is enumerated in the 1880 Freedom Twp., Wood Co., OH census as living with his brother, George Cowden.

I hope that I've provided enough documentation for the surname registry.

Thank You,

Would like to learn of these families of Wood county, Ohio, in particular the parents of Albert Updike CALVIN. Also the parents of Jane UNDERWOOD who married Joseph COX in 1838.
