By performing a search in the Descendants Database of the D.A.R. Genealogical Research System, I was able to learn a great deal of family history information related to Mrs. Endean. She was born on January 27, 1884 at Crawfordsville, Indiana. She married Frederick Endean on September 11, 1907. Mrs. Endean's Revolutionary ancestor was James Cowing, a native of Virgina. James Cowing furnished supplies to the American troops during the Revolutionary War, according to the VIRGINIA PUBLIC SERVICE CLAIMS INDEX.
