John Cowgill, Jr.

(A biographical sketch taken from One Hundred Years, The Delaware County National Bank Chester, PA 1814-1914)

Years in parentheses are years of service as a Director of The Bank of Delaware County and/or The Delaware County National Bank

John Cowgill, Jr. (1814), came to Chester in 1811 from Kent county, Delaware. He, in the summer of that year, in connection with Joshua C. Cowgill purchased the tannery on Edgmont avenue above Third street, afterwards owned by William Brobson, and later by Frederick J. Hinkson. The Cowgills conducted the business then until the early winter of 1815, when John resigned his seat in the board of directors, as he had, or was about, "to remove from the State."
