About MR Troy C Cowan

Troy Cowan was a school teacher and school administrator. He was fortunate to have taught in Guam, Oregon, the Virgin Islands, and Texas. In 2005, he retired from Brenham High School. In the seventies, Troy's aunt, Jane R. Davis, told about her family's relationship with Abraham Lincoln and John Wilkes Booth. One of her stories was about a letter Jefferson Davis received after the U.S. Government released him from prison. The letter was from J.W.B. saying he was alive, well, and living in Mexico. My aunt learned many stories while listening to the Davis kinfolk swap stories of Lincoln, Davis, Booth, and the Civil War. After Troy retired, he began to do research to learn the truth of his aunt's stories. That research led to the writing of Lincoln, Davis, and Booth.
