My ancestor John Cowan was born in County Down 1n 1758. The only thing
from or about him I ever found funny was a statement in his will signed 24
May 1841.

>>>And I give and bequeth unto my son in law Alexander Morrow to have the
use of a mare now gray which I lent him so long ago as my executors may
think proper to let him keep her.

If he were any tighter he'd squeak!
