Frank Cowan came to Farmer Community in Crosby County in the spring of 1908. He was born in Tennessee, stayed in Arkansas for some twenty-seven years. He bought a place, called the Bott´s place, where he lived until he retired from active duty three years ago. He is now living in Floydada with his daughter, Audrey.
Mr. Cowan was a good farmer, a faithful member of the Primitive Baptist Church. He recalls when he came to Crosby County, he just angled across the country to Emma, Plainview, or any other place, as there no fences.
His son Lester married Miss Ruth Johnson and is farming the Cowan land. He is another of Crosby County´s good farmers and a loyal citizen.
