This is JB Cowan's lineage information, as he describes it in three commonly cited letters. See Indian Captivity Stories/JB Cowan Letters for details upon which this is based. JB provides few, if any, dates. This graphic is restricted to the information which he does provide. Note that JB's statement concerning the father of Elizabeth Cowan McCroskey is difficult to interpret. Read strictly, he says that she was the daughter of Samuel Cowan the first. Another interpretation is that she is the daughter of Samuel the son of Samuel the first.
