Hello.I am trying to help my boyfriend, Chad Lian McGowan research his roots.Here is what we DO know.Chad is 33 years old, his father is Dennis Leon McGowan, Mother Brenda Trexler McGowan both of Charlotte, NC.
Chad's grandfather was Robert Leon McGowan, date of birth:June 29, 1928.Married Delores Klassett (not sure of that spelling). He lived in Mecklenburg County and died there as well (Charlotte, NC)
Robert Leon McGowan's parents were:Dempsey Ernest McGowan, Sr. born in Iredell County, NC, mother:Odessa Helms from the Mallard Creek area of Mecklenburg Co.
Please note there is a Dempsey Ernest McGowan, Jr.went by the name "Bud."This would be Robert's brother.
Any information on this family line or others in North Carolina/South Carolina area would be appreciated.You can feel free to contact me by email if you wish at:firstname.lastname@example.org
