John Geaween Gowen, b. 1615 and d. before 1715
I was going to ask you about John Geween/Greaween but I saw in a prior post that you put him under the Sweat name on your web site. I have been sitting on a FamilyTreeDNA test for about four years. I was recently discussing the results with someone in the a different forum. They directed me to the Goins surname DNA study. It seems, according to FamilyDNAtree, that John and Mihil are in the same Haplogroup with one of my cousins who is a direct descendant of Michael Goins. Michael is his 2nd great grandfather. Michael, according to his obituary, was born in Albemarle County circa 1805. I am still at a loss as to the names of Michael's parents.
