RESEARCH NOTES for Benjamin Fowler

Benjamin Fowler age 45+ was living in Oxford, Butler, Ohio in 1820 along with two sons: James and Jeremiah.  Benjamin was in Madison Co, Kentucky in 1800 along with Jeremiah and Joseph Fowler who were both sons of Jeremiah Fowler and Drucilla Isaac (Jeremiah was the son of Thomas Fowler and Susannah Ijams).  Jeremiah did not have a documented son named Benjamin, therefore he was probably a nephew. 

It is probable that Benjamin was a descendant of Thomas Fowler and Susannah Ijams due to his migration patterns and proximity to other descendants and allied families. A Joseph Fowler transferred a military land warrant to Andrew Ellison in the Miami Valley of Ohio in 1815 (500 acres) and it is possible that Benjamin Fowler was related to this Joseph - possibly his brother. Joseph Fowler was in Fayette Co, PA in 1800 and Andrew Ellison was there in 1810.  (about a dozen descendants of Thomas Fowler and Susannah Ijams were in Fayette Co, PA from 1790 to 1800).  There was a younger Joseph Fowler living in Wayne Twp, Butler OH in 1820 age 26-45 who was probably the son or nephew of Benjamin. The older Joseph Fowler may have died before 1820 or he may have moved to Boone County, KY which is located next to Hamilton Co, Ohio and very near Butler Co.  A Joseph Fowler age 45+ was in Burlington, Boone Co, KY in 1820 along with a Benjamin Fowler age 26-45 who may have been his son.

Benjamin was in Butler Co, Ohio by 1808 because his son James Fowler was married to Elizabeth Devore in that county in 1808.  Benjamin named one of his sons Jeremiah, therefore making a possible connection to Jeremiah Fowler and Drucilla Isaac who were also in Madison, KY in 1800. Thomas Fowler and Susannah Ijams had a grandson Benjamin (son of William Fowler and Susannah Duvall) who died probably before 1790 in Anne Arundel, MD. Our Benjamin may have been his son who migrated to Kentucky to be with his uncle Jeremiah after his father's death.

Benjamin has not been located in the 1790 Federal census, however, the widow of the elder Benjamin - Hammutal Stinchcomb Fowler - was in Anne Arundel, MD in 1790.  There was one male over 16, one male under 16 and 2 females in her household.  It is possible that the male over 16 was Benjamin, the male under 16 was James and one of the females was the wife of Benjamin.  Hammutal may have died before 1800 since she is not found after 1790 in census records.  Other references to a Benjamin Fowler have been found in the Maryland Archives but it is not possible to determine which Benjamin Fowler they were referring to - there were several Benjamin Fowlers in Anne Arundel and Prince Georges, MD.

Benjamin was living close to other descendants of Thomas Fowler and Susannah Ijams in Ohio.  His probable first cousin, John D. Fowler was living in Eagle Twp, Brown Co, Ohio in 1820.  Brown County is located slightly east, but very close to Butler County.  In 1820 John D. Fowler's son, Joshua D. Fowler, was living in Liberty Twp, Butler County, Ohio.  Benjamin's grandson, James C. Fowler, was born in Brown Co, Ohio.  Other possible descendants of Thomas Fowler and Susannah Ijams were living in Darke County, Ohio which is slightly north of Butler County.  These include Daniel and Hezekiah Fowler, the possible nephews of Benjamin, who were living in Darke County 1820 to 1850.

Benjamin was also living close to some descendants of Mareen Duvall, the father of Susannah Duvall who married William Fowler - Benjamin's probable grandfather.  John Duvall and Isaac Duvall were living in Oxford, Butler Co, Ohio in 1830 - the town where Benjamin died before 1830.  Isaac Duvall is believed to be the nephew of Susannah - son of her brother Samuel.  Susannah's grand nephew, Marsh Mareen Duvall, was living in Mill Creek, Hamilton Co, Ohio (directly south of Butler County) in 1830.  Other Duvalls were in Darke County, Ohio.

1765 - 1787: Living in Maryland - possibly Anne Arundel or Prince George County
1788 - 1799: Living in Maryland, Pennsylvania or Kentucky
1800 - 1807: Living in Madison Co, Kentucky
1808 - 1820+: Living in Oxford Twp, Butler Co, Ohio - probably died there before 1830
