  • ID: I00057
  • Name: Henson McDowell 1
  • Sex: M
  • Birth: ABT 1731
  • ALIA: Hinson McDowell
  • Note:
    This individual first appears as tithable in Amelia County, Virginia, in 1748, suggesting he was born in 1731 or 1732. A John McDowell appears to be his father. He was present from 1748-1756. Henson could possibly be the father of John McDowell (b. 1759), naming his son after his own father. A Hanson/Hinson McDowell appeared as a defendant in Pittsylvania County, Virginia, in Court Record Books from 1770 and 1773. The 1773 entry indicates he was not a resident of the county, and the case was abated.

    Hinson McDowell also appeared on a muster roll dating from 1757 (Captain Robert Stewart's Company, in the Virginia Regiment). According to this record, he was a 26-year-old planter from Amelia County and was 5'6" tall. This also suggests he was born around 1731 (page 454 from Colonial Soldiers of the South, 1732-1774 by Murtie June Clark, 1983, published by Genealogical Publishing Company, Baltimore.
