John McDowell and Eliza Ackley had two children that married into the Harris line.Their daughter Nancy McDowell (born 1834 in Eden Township, Licking County) married Issac Harris.Thier son, Philetus McDowell (my direct line) married Nancy Harris (Joshua Harris' daughter) on Dec 13, 1855.As the McDowell's moved to Putnam County, Ohio in 1837 the families must have remained close.Philetus' actually moves his famly back to Liberty Township, according to the 1870 Census but he has returned to Putnam by 1880.
John and his brother Hugh were originally from Ohio.I believe their father is James McDowell.Still trying to prove that.They all appear on the 1830 Census in Eden Township, Licking County, Ohio.James McDowell is the only one (but the aged sons on the census match John and Hugh) for Mary Ann Township (Eden was not created until 1822).
Any help would be greatly appreciated regarding the McDowell line.
Nancy Harris McDowell is buried in Union Clymer Cemetary.I have photos if you would like me to e-mail them.
John and Eliza are buried there as well.
I'm trying to find out where the McDowell's are buried in Licking.Since Nancy McDowell married Issac Harris, the rest of her family might be buried there as well (i.e. grandparents).
