Notes for ALEXANDER OWENS:
Herman, I also live in the country about 5 miles from where Alexander Owens owned 80 acres in Desoto County, Ms. Did you know about his second marriage and the two children born of it? As I said some of his children followed him here but others stayed in Ala. I found some of their names in a court paper where they were duking it out about Alexander's place. I guess all was forgiven for by the time I came along my grandfather loved all his neices and nephews and they loved their "Uncle Martin". Needless to say I think the land ended up stolen from all of them. Are there still a lot of relatives in Bibb County who carry the Owen's name? Hope to hear more from you and as I said before I was thrilled to death and I want to thank you for making this info available to me. Gloria - GloriaSowell@webtv.net (Ms.G.)
