Looking for family of Michael Patrick McCowell (born 1815, Ireland), and Maranda Turner, born about 1825, South Carolina (no info on her family).They probably married about 1842, but I haven't found the marriage.
In 1850, the family was in Meriwether Co., GA; in 1860-70, in Pike Co., GA.Some of the family was in Spalding Co. in 1880.
