Gowdy - Goudy Family
L. Gowdy, Sr.
L. Gowdy, Jr.
L. Gowdy, III
Genealogy Research began in the Summer of 1990 conversing with relatives, going to family reunions in Bristow, Oklahoma and acquiring information at the Oklahoma Historical Society in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. I would appreciate any feedback concerning possible errors, questions or any new additional information or photographs about the Gowdy family.
I began genealogy research with myself, Vernon L. Gowdy III wishing to trace back my roots of the Gowdy-Goudy name. I have since traced back my direct descendent line to Robert Gouedy (gggggg grandfather). I personally feel that Robert Gouedy came directly from Scotland or Ireland or traveled down from Virginia or Pennsylvania to live among the Cherokees at Great Tellico in eastern Tennessee.
For other information on
the GOWDY-GOUDY FAMILY there is a Two Volume work on the Gowdy Family History published in
1919 by Mahlon M. Gowdy from Providence, Rhode Island. The black bound two volume work
covers the surnames of GADE, GADIE, GAUDIE, GAWDIE, GAWDY, GOWDY, GOUDY, GOUDEY, GOWDEY,
GAUDEN, GAUDERN, and other Variant Forms from A.D. 800 to A.D. 1919. I have found a
website that sells a reprinted edition of this fine work at the Higginson Book Company in Salem, Massachusetts.
My mother's side of the family - Harrison Family is also on this site.
