  • After a bazillion years of researching I finally found my Great Great Grandparents on my fathers side. Thomas Cowan and Catherine McKelvey Cowan of Pennsylvania.

    I found another article with them in the article.

    It listed him as Thomas Cohen and Catharine McKelsey of Upland, Delaware Co, PA.    It came from North America, Family Histories, 1600-2000   Hannun Family, The Genealogy of Hannum Family descended from John and Margery Hannum Settlers of Chester PA.  North American, Family Histories 1500-2000 page 464.
