Updated November 9, 2000

About Our Family Research


I HAVE BEEN SEARCHING FOR ANYONE WHO IS ABLE TO TELL ME IF I AM RELATED TO GARDNER COWLES OF IOWA. MY GRANDFATHER WAS BORN IN ARKANSAS AND HIS FAMILY MIGRATED NORTH TO IOWA. HIS NAME WAS CHARLED JAMES COWLES. MY GRANDMOTHER IS THE FORMER MILDRED EMMA BUSHBOM AND THEIR HOME PLACE WAS IN THE AREA OF STATE CENTER, IOWA. BOTH OF MY GRANDPARENTS CAME FROM VERY LARGE FAMILIES. MY GRANDFATHER WAS ONE OF THIRTEEN CHILDREN. HIS MOTHER'S NAME WAS
MARIE TURNBALL, AND HIS FATHER WAS CHARLES JAMES COWLES. MY FATHER IS GERALD MAC COWLES AND HAS ONE BROTHER WILLIAM JAMES COWLES. MY FATHER WILL BE 73 IN SEPTEMBER OF 2000 AND MY UNCLE WILL BE 67 IN ODCTOBER. MANY OF MY FATHER'S RELATIVES ARE DECEASED.I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IF MY FAMILY IS RELATED TO THE GARDNER COWLES WHO OWNED AND RAN THE DES MOINES REGISTER AND TRIBUNE. I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO KNOW IF THERE WAS ANY SLAVE INVOLVEMENT, IF ANY, AND IF ANY OF MY ANCESTORS WERE AFRICAN OF AFRICAN AMERICAN.
