I found a Thomas Henry McDowell that might fit the person you are looking for.He was receiving a Civil War pension in Louisiana until his death in Dec 1913 in New Orleans.
I am a McDowell but not related to your line.I try to assist fellow McDowells in their quest for their ancestors.
I checked Ancestry.com and found many trees with your ancestor but none of the information was resourced with primary records.Those trees suggest that he was from Amite, Mississippi and died there.
I will check one of my subscriptions to see if I can access Thomas Henry McDowell (from LA) Civil War pension application.This may allow me to see if he is indeed your ancestor.
Don't give up on your search.I'm part of the McDowell DNA Project and they have been incredible reconnecting folks.
