John Stowers, 1819
Inventory of Goods

Submitted by Kathy Hesketh at


Note from Kathy: John Stowers and his family move into Sumner Co. from North Carolina. John died in 1819 in Sumner County. He was married to Catherine Beavers. I have a transcription of the Inventory of his estate. The original copy came from the Tennessee State Archives. The Stowers family ended up in Macon County after it was formed from Sumner Co.
