Mary Ann Cowper

1776 - 1856


Given variously as Mary Ann Couper and Mary Ann Cooper, and the daughter of Basil Cowper (q.v.). Not further traced to date by LBS: her sister was married to John McQueen who reportedly died at Savannah in 1822.


Mackay and Stiles papers, at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill; a summary of work by Alisha M. Cromwell at University of Georgia in her thesis 'Complicating the Patriarchy: Elite and Enslaved Women in the 19th Century Atlantic World' suggests that Mary Anne Cowper was active in Savannah as well as (and possibly instead of) Jamaica), [accessed 11/10/2019].
