I am running into a problem with the line of Missouri Angeline Cowart (b. 1859 d.1950. She married William Norris Pinkney Kennedy (b.1855 d. 1911 his name may also be James William Norris Pinkney Kennedy). They were married 18 May 1878 in OK She may have remarried (but I am not certain of this or if they had children) to J.H. McElory abt 1911 (if anyone has any information on this please contact me)
Her parents are Seaborn I. Cowart (Coward) b.1817 d. abt 1884 and Nancy Davis b. 1817 d. 1870. They married in 1839 in GA. I am not sure what his middle initial stands for I have found him listed as Seaborn Ingram and as Seaborn Isaac.
Seaborn Cowart’s father is Malachi Cowart b. 1783/1784 in Dobbs Co., NC. This is where the problem begins. I have found Malachi Cowart’s father listed as Zachariah and as Needham Cowart/Coward/Cowherd. These two brothers both had sons named Malachi. Both born in Dobb Co., NC.
Needham’s son Malachi was born in 1784 and Zachariah’s son Malachi was born in/abt 1783. I have found that both of these Malachi’s are listed as the father of Seaborn who is the father of Missouri Angeline.
Needham married Esther Phoebe Blount (b. abt 1760 d. abt 1793)
Zachariah married Elizabeth DeLane (b. abt 1758 d. 1831)
Needham and Zachariah’s parents are Edward Cowart/Coward/Cowherd (I have found him under each variation) b. Abt 1723 in NC and Dorcas Roberts (have found her listed as Jane Dorcas Roberts) b. abt 1727 in NC d. abt 1790 married abt. 1742
