"GRINNING HENRY"
Spouse1: Elizabeth Piggott Pickett
b.1750 FEB 10 James City Colony of Virginia
d.1835 Chalbeate Springs, Edmonson County, Kentucky
Father: Thomas Cowles  
Mother:
Henry Cowles was a methodist, wore knee breeches and was a learned man.
According to family tradition, Henry B. Cowles was noted as being a lover.
Henry arrived in Barren Co KY with his sister, Elizabeth who brought along 2 slaves Peter and Ned from VA and gave them to John Cowles.
He settled a lot of land having passed over on acct of scarcity of water on a farm 2 miles from Pine Grove Church and 5 miles from Chalybeate, KY.
(cowles families in America)
Henry witnessed the will of Richard Brack of James City Co. VA in 1789,
and is mentioned in the will of John Cooper of same county in 1791.
He and his maiden sister Elizabeth are buried in the family burying ground in the farm but their graves are unmarked. In 1903, a part of the farm was known as the Jerry Poteet place, and part of it was owned by James Cowles, a grandson of Henry Cowles.
The wife of Henry Cowles was names Elizabeth and some of her descendants claim that her maiden name was Piggott, or Pickett.
Edmund Cowles married Elizabeth Piggott in Toana, VA in May 1800, but it is not impossible that there should have been two of the same name.
He bought land of a Mr. Holcomb in Edmonson Co. KY and there lived and died.

Occupation: farmer, constable, surveyor, jurior, Farmer, Constable, Surveyor, Juror John Cowles, immigrant ancestor, was born in England, and was among the early settlers of Hartford, Connecticut . Not long after the year 1640 he located at Farmington, Connecticut, and in 1652 was one of those who organized the church there. He was born in the west of England, it is thought, about 1598 . He bought land on the corner at the north end of Farmington village, known afterward as the Dr. Thompson and Bodwell places. Selling this property, he bought three lots just south of the present meeting house and built a house there. He spelled his name Cowles in order to distinguish himself from another man named Cole of the same town, and from that time to the present the descendants of his eldest son Samuel have spelled the name Cowles and those of the youngest son John have, until the beginning of the nineteenth century, favored the spelling Cowls. He was a farmer. He was deputy to the general assembly from Farmington in 1653-54. In 1659 he was one of the signers who started the settlement at Hadley, Massachusetts, but was probably not there among the first, being a resident at Hadley in 1662. He was one of the twenty-five "engagers" in Hadley to establish themselves in Hatfield "across the river" before March, 1661. His record in Hatfield begins January 14, 1660-61, according to the records of that place, and he died there September, 1675, and was probably buried there. He was one of a committee that laid out a burying place for the town, February 14, 1669, and there was no other cemetery there until 1848. His widow Hannah, after his death, went to live with son-in-law, Caleb Stanley , of Hartford, where she died March 16, 1683, and she was buried there. Her will was dated October 27, 1680, and in it she states that her husbands last will was dated December 11, 1674. The homestead in Hatfield was in possession of descendants until April, 1898.

(from Cowles Families in America)
According to tradition, John came directly from England to Virginia, and settled near Williamsburg, James City County, but he was the immigrant ancestor admits of grave doubt.
It is not uncommon for families when they reach the name of the last known ancestor to conclude that he was the original immigrant, whereas he may have been born in the immediate neighborhood.
The present case may be no exception to the general rule and it would be well to bear in mind that all the branches of the Cowles family of Virginia may be descended from Richard Cowles who was in Virginia in 1614 and perhaps earlier.
Thomas is the only child of John Cowles mentioned in the tradition but from the evedence contained in the will of John Cooper, he probably had other children listed below.
The name of his wife is unknown.
If the inference is correct that he names one of his sons Edmund, of which there can be but little doubt, the presumption is strong that he was a descendent of Edmund Cowles who was in Charles City County and James City County, VA, in 1666 and perhaps earlier, and who patented land which had been bought by Richard Cowles in 1614, perhaps his father. THOMAS (1) COWLES, according to tradition, came from England about 1700, with his wife, Obedience, to Lobbs Landing, James City County, Va., and bought Lobbs Landing and the old homestead, a farm called Cowlesville, which remains in the Cowles family to as late as 1920. Cowlesville is situated about 2 1/2 miles east of the mouth of Diascund Creek. The Lobbs farm, also owned by the Cowles family, is bounded on the north by Cowlesville and on the south by Chickahominy River (Appendix III). Tradition is untrustworthy and, for various reasons stated in the Introduction, the compiler is of the opinion that Thomas Cowles was a native of Virginia and a descendant of Richard Cowles of Kenniges Creek, Charles City County (Appendix VI). The following description of the old homestead was written by one of the family in 1901: "I was born and raised at the old Cowles farm in James City County, Va. No one knows when this house was built as it is quite a curiosity to see the massive hewn timbers in the basement. Of course it has been kept up until the old place has partially lost its old colonial style. We still own this place, and there is the old burying-ground with so many ancestors, but strange to say, though they all seemed persons of means, there is not a stone to mark the graves." It is said that Thomas and Obedience Cowles had eleven sons and daughters, but the name of only one child, John, is given; another son went to near Baltimore and another to North Carolina, it is said. Eleven children, but the names of ten are unknown.

Thomas Cowles was raised in James City County, Virginia with at least 2 siblings. There were multiple generations of related Cowles family branches in Virginia, that used the same names for their sons; in particular the names Thomas and John. This has resulted in conflicting research. However, all versions of genealogy show the Cowles were a wealthy family that lived around the Chickahominy River in Virginia, in the counties of James City and Charles City. THOMAS COWLES, son of John (1). Perhaps he was the Thomas Cowles elected as member of a Committee of Safety by the fee holders of James City Co., Va., Nov. 25, 1794. He was born and raised in James City County and probably resided on or near Chickahominy River.

CHARLES CITY, October 31, 1776 , THOMAS COWLES - - - Virginia Gazette - 1776 It gives us PAIN, my Lord, to find that the Indians have made fresh Encroachments and Disturbances on out Frontiers. We have only to request that Your Excellency will be pleased to exert those Powers with which you are fully invested, by the Acts of Assembly for making Provision against Invasions and Insurrections; which we doubt not, will be found sufficient to repel the hostile and perfidious Attempts of those and barbarous Enemies. Thomas wife was NOT Elizabeth Crawley. I suspect this misinformation is caused by a 1774 marriage record to Elizabeth Crawley in York County, Virginia. That marriage record is for a different Thomas Cowles who was living Charles City County, Virginia. Our Thomas was in James City VA, not Charles City VA. There are references in book "Genealogy of the Cowles Family in America" page 1128-1133 that confirm Elizabeth Crawley was married to a different Thomas Cowles.

He signed the Jubilee paper issued by bishop Madison at Jamestown, May 1 3, 1807 In 1807, a dignified celebration marked the bicentennial of Jamestown. Som etimes referred to as "Virginiad," the celebration was most commonly call ed the Grand National Jubilee. No less than 3,500 people attended the even t. Twelve to 14 vessels anchored in the river near the island to deliver m any of the participants. College of William and Mary students gave oratio ns and a company of players from Norfolk performed, converting an old ba rn on the island into a temporary theater. There were many dignitaries, po liticians, and historians among the celebrants. One of these, Jamestown s own Colonel Champion Travis, was honored as a surviving member of the V irginia Convention of 1776--first to declare for state independence. May 1 3th was the opening day of the festival, which began with a procession whi ch marched to the graveyard of the old church. The attending bishop report edly stood on a tombstone to deliver the prayer. The procession then mov ed to the Travis mansion. The celebrants dined and danced in the mansion t hat evening. Jamestown claimed the life of another victim when a young m an succumbed to heat stroke and "too free use of ice in cider." Visitors a ttended his funeral on the 14th. The Bicentennial celebration concluded with a dinner and toast at the Raleigh Tavern in Williamsburg.

I believe he is buried at Hawks cemtery. It only has a birthda te on it in April of 1860. He is brother Vincent was born June 13, 186 0. I do not believe this can be possible. There is more research to be d one on this. I am also unsure on the spelling of his middle name it was e ither Irvin or Ervin. They called him by this name.
