Hi. Fowlers from Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina are mostly descended from John Fowler, the first in Virginia. And from his son Godfrey, the first in North Carolina.
My father's family is in the general area's of Union and Spartanburg Counties, South Carolina. Census from the late 1800's show them living in Glendale, Union County, South Carolina.
The first iron works in the State were erected by the Tyger River, at Lawson's Fork, in 1773; and forges and small furnaces were operated at several places in it, during the years immediately following the Revolution. There were two big cotton mills. The first two being built in 1816-1818. Both were burnt down by Tories during the Revolutionary War at Lawsons Fork Creek, then Bivingsville, later Glendale. Both mills were rebuilt after the war but one closed in 1826. Maybe to concentrate on making weapons for the upcoming Civil War. After the Civil War three mills were built and there was alot of work to be done. Union, Spartanburg, Greenville, Pickens, Oconee, Anderson, and Laurens Counties in South Carolina grew and were full of Textile mills by 1900.
Soon after the Revolutionary War was over, many people went as far west as they could go. The Reverend Littleton Fowler's family settled in Texas. There are some great stories of how this branch of Fowlers made a good life for themselves.
