I can't give you much right now. It's 4:31am Mother's Day. My grandfather, Major Charles McGowan, Sr., had a brother name Archy.I don't know his wife's name, etc.I'll quiz momma because I have heard her talking about Uncle Arch.My grandfather was born 1898 and I'm fairly sure it was here, Jackson, Mississippi, Hinds Cty.
Your Archy could be momma's great uncle.I have some old documentation locked up and I will give it a look. Also, momma was to be name after someone: Josephine Cinderella. Now, I don't know if she was a McGowan or on my grandmother's side. Oh, they settled on Josephine as a middle name only. Momma is soooo relieved.
I haven't tried genealogy research in 25 years. Maybe it's time I picked it back up.
