Zadok Coan was born in 1845 in SC to John Coan and ? Sherbert . John Coan was born in 1816 in Ireland and died 3/15/1893 in Spartanburg, Spartanburg County, SC. It's probable that John  Cowan married unknown Sherbert or Shurbutt and had 3 children with her before she died possibly in childbirth. Zadok Coan, Nancy Coan and Cansadia Coan.

1850 Federal Census of Union County, SC Published by Broad River Basin Historical Society on 3/1993, Pg 57, Dwelling 470, Head is "Zadok Sherbert" (The name may originally be Shurbutt)
" Zadok Sherbert, 51, W, M, Cropper, Born in SC
"Mahala, 35, W, F, Born in SC (Probably Zadok Sherbert's daughter)
"Harriet, 11, W, F, Born in SC (Probably Mahala's children and Zadok Sherbert's grandchildren)
"Didemia, 8, W, F, Born in SC
"Gabriel, 6, W, M, Born in SC
"Sarah, 4, W, F, Born in SC
"Barbara, 1, W, F, Born in SC
"James, 20, W, M, Laborer, Born in SC (Probably Zadok Sherbert's son)
"Zadok Cowan, 4, W, M, Born in SC
"Cansadia Cowan, 2, W, F, Born in SC
"Nancy Cowan, 3/12, W, F, Born in SC"

1850 U.S. Census, other Cowans in Union County, SC.

"Elizabeth, 23, W, F, Born in SC (Daughter of William and Elizabeth Cowan)
"Sarah, 3, W, F, Born in SC
"Nancy, 1, W, F, Born in SC
"John Cowan, 33, W, M, Laborer, Born in Ireland" (Zadok Coan's father)

"William Cowan, 84, W, M, Born in Ireland (I think this is John Coan's father or grandfather)
"Elizabeth Harmond, 20, W, F, Born in SC"

At this point, I believe that John Coan had married one of Zadok Sherbert's daughters. They had 3 children and she probably died in childbirth. The children went to live with their mother's father until John Coan could get his life back. It seems he was living and working in a nearby farm.

John Coan married Mary Brooks in October, 1858 (Notice in the Carolina Spartan, dated 10/7/1858, pg 2)

Mary Brooks Coan (DOB 1/15/1819 in SC) died 1/22/1901 in Spartanburg, Spartanburg County, SC.

Susan Ann "Susana, Susannah" Quinn was born in May, 1848 in SC to James W. Quinn (DOB 9/27/1824 in SC; DOD after 1900 in Spartanburg County, SC) and Agnes Quinn (DOB 8/16/1820 in SC; DOD 7/23/1902 in Spartanburg County, SC).

J.W. Quinn and his wife, Agness M. Quinn, are buried at Zion Hill Baptist Church, 2817 E. Main St. (Hwy 29), Spartanburg, SC, 29307. I think Agness died first because the single tombstone has both her birth and death dates but only J.W.'s birth date. For some reason they didn't have his death date engraved when he died.

Susan Quinn Coan married Israel Fowler about 1895.

1900 U.S. Census of Spartanburg County, Glendale Township, SC (ED100, Series T623, Roll 1542, Pg 111, Lines 27-28, Dwelling 160, Family 163, "Israel Fowler")

Israel and Susan Fowler were living beside Zadoc and Susan Coan's son, Will Cohen in the

Israel Fowler died on 5/28/1918 in Clifton, Spartanburg Township, Spartanburg County, SC of the "effects of grip and age". His death certificate (certificate #16074 states he was born in Union County, SC and both his parents were born in Union County, SC in "1842".

1920 Census of Spartanburg Township, Spartanburg County, SC (ED 102, Series T625, Roll 1710, Pg 210, Lines 78-81, Dwelling 341, Family 366, "William Hodge")

John Ball, Boarder, M, W, 70, Widowed, Born in SC, Both parents born in SC

At first I couldn't find a death certificate for Susan Ann Quinn Coan Fowler. But I found out she married for a 3rd time. According to her brother, Rev. James Wofford Quinn's (DOB 12/25/1854 in Fairfield County, SC; DOD 10/10/1936 in Cherokee Springs, Spartanburg County, SC) obituary, she was "Mrs. Susan Littlejohn". She was married to M. Littlejohn when she died.

Rev. James W. Quinn (this James W. Quinn was the brother of Susan Ann Quinn Coan Fowler Littlejohn) there is a grave site at Cannon's Camp Ground United Methodist Church. for Rev. James W. Quinn, born December 25, 1855 and dec'd Oct. 10, 1936. His obituary states that he lived in Cherokee Springs. He was not a member of Cannon's Camp Ground United Methodist Church and I cannot read the name of the church he belonged to. He was survived by his wife, Jane McAbee Quinn and children:
C.W. Quinn, Travelers Rest;
Claude Quinn, Cross Anchor;
W. C. Quinn, Cross Anchor;
B.E. Quinn and Mrs. C.B. Huggins, Spartanburg, S.C.
also, Mrs. J.D. O'Sullivan of Cherokee Springs


He had three sisters:
Mrs. Molly Linder Wallace of Cherokee Springs
Mrs. Susan Littlejohn of Cowpens
Mrs. Nan Morrow of Gaffney
It states he had 48 grandchildren and 19 great grandchildren. Following grandsons were pallbearers:
Grady Quinn
Zeb Quinn
Paul Quinn
Dorrus Quinn
Jerry O'Sullivan
Ernest O'Sullivan


Then I was able to find her death certificate.
