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
#1476/1467
Cowden, George 46y Farmer 3000/500  PA
   , Sarah A. 33y    NY
   , A(unreadable) 11y    OH Female
   , George 10y    OH
   , Jeremiah(?) 02    OH
#1483/1454
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,
