A note for the researchers who are descended from Harris (b c1780) or Amos (b c1775) Dowlin/Dowlen.These two lived in Warren Co. NC in 1793. I have found no records that suggest they ever lived in the Waxhaw district of NC/SC.
Harris and Amos were likely sons of James who lived in Bute, then Warren Co. NC as early as 1772.James died 1793 in Warren Co.He was associated with Duke, Green, Bobbitt, Jones and Harris families and others. Other Dowlins mentioned in estate records for James were Lucy, Harris, Amos, Martha and Selah (Celia).Harris Dowlin married in 1799 in Davidson Co. TN, to Susan Hargrove.Celia was married in Davidson Co. TN to Shadrack Jones in 1803.
In 1775 James Dowlin was witness to the will of Joseph Green.Green named in his will a grandson Josiah Green Duke.Josiah Green Duke was married in Davidson Co. TN in 1798 to Sally Hargrove, supposedly a sister of Susan Hargrove Dowlin. I have not seen any record of Amos Dowlin in Davidson Co. Edythe Rucker Whitley wrote in her book, Red River settlers : records of the settlers of Northern Montgomery, Robertson, and Sumner Counties, Tennessee, that Amos came to TN with Harris from the Waxhaw district, but I suspect she copied that information from Reid Dowland's book.
