Alexander McGowen of Limestone County, Alabama

I am looking for information on Alexander McGowen/McGowan/McGown of Limestone County, Alabama. He is listed in "Old Land Records of Limestone County, Alabama" by Margaret Matthews Cowart with the date of his land record being 28 Mar 1856. There is a deed from Alexander McGowan and wife Manda to Wilson Jones dated 11 Oct 1857 and recorded in Deed Book 1857 to 1865, page 94. Then there is a land grant from the United States (Cash Sale) to Alexander McGowan dated 01 Mar 1858. The last record found is in the Limestone County (Alabama) Commissions Court Order Book 1840 -1858, and Alexander McGown is listed as entry #334 on "List of Insolvents Returned by the tax collector." I am specifically interested in knowing if Alexander may have been the father of David McGowin born between 1808 and 1818 (dates in census records vary widely) in Kentucky. David was married first to Sarah Pipes, then to Mary "Polly" Pipes. I have well-documented research on David McGowin and his descendants, but I've hit a brick wall locating David's father.
