Bluett Owen Bluett H. Owen was born about 1802 in South Carolina. He was one of the eleven children of John Owen and Sarah Hatton Owen. He may have entered the world near Newberry, about 45 miles northwest of Columbia, the state capital. His mother s obituary says she and her husband settled in the Newberry district and they are listed on the Censuses for that area in 1800 and However, the 1790 and 1820 Censuses list them as living in Fairfield. When John died in 1826, his will was filed in Abbeyville, SC. Shortly after John s death, Bluett s mother and some of her children moved nearly 600 miles to Shelby County, TN, the area around what is now Memphis. That s where Bluett and his brother William would meet and marry two sisters. William married Harriet West on February 11, Documents show Bluett was a bondsman for the marriage. Exactly one year later, on February 11, 1830, Bluett married Rebecca Clarise West. Both brides were born in Mecklenburg, NC, the daughters of Benjamin West and Easter Bradley. Bluett and Rebecca would have seven children, beginning with Erastus in 1831, and a set of twin boys born in All the children had names beginning with E. In 1840, according to Census records, Bluett was still in Shelby County; in 1845, he is listed as bondsman for his brother, Howard s, marriage. Bluett was a Methodist minister, as were two of his brothers. No records are available for Bluett s ministry, but Methodist archivists speculate that he was a local minister, as opposed to a circuit minister, for whom there are more records available. His brother, Travis, was a circuit riding preacher in the Carolinas, Georgia, and Tennessee. (continued on page 8.)

Submission of lineages, biographies, photographs, historical and genealogical data about any Owen anywhere is encouraged! Submissions are always sent to the Editor. Your ideas for the newsletter are also solicited. From Our President s Notebook Sadly, we have received word that one of our Honorary Members has passed on. Mrs. Louise A. Locke (#264) died November 9, Our hearts go out to her daughter, Ms. Pat Gardetto and other members of the family. We also regretfully report a severe loss to a new member who has become our new Editorial Assistant, Garry W. Owens, and his family. His beloved daughter, Mary Kathleen ( Kathy ) Dunn ended her long and valiant battle with cancer. She died October 12, Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to Garry and Mary Owens and to Kathy s husband, Alvin Dunn, and their three children. We are many separate Owen(s) families and yet (one of life s mysteries), we are one big Owen family. We re all in it together. Jane Owen Hillard ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ A hearty warm welcome to our new members! The fact that Gene Owen hails from California and Joe Owen resides in North Carolina shows the reach of our Association, which is steadily growing. Welcome, indeed! Gene Leroy Owen (#465) 1813 Chopin Way, Modesto, CA (209) Earliest ancestor: John & Sarah Hatton Owen, b. 1767, Northampton, NC d. 1826, Newberry, SC Joseph Charles (Joe) Owen (#466) See Queries, page 11. Earliest ancestor: Richard Owen, b. ca , VA. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ WE ARE ALL INVITED! We have just received an invitation to gather at the Athenaeum in New Harmony Village at 2:00 PM on Saturday, September 24 th. There, we will be welcomed by the Director of the New Harmony Project of the University of Southern Indiana, Evansville. We will be among other groups and individuals visiting that lovely place for a brief respite from the world. The Owen Family group will be introduced and lauded for our unique kind of organization, all of us representing our different unrelated Owen ancestors. The Director will inform the others that we have chosen New Harmony as the site for our 11 th biennial re-union because of its association with the great industrialist-utopian, Robert Owen. We are grateful for the opportunity to be recognized!! If anyone should ask any of us if we are related to the famous Robert Owen, we can proudly reply that our Host and fellow OFA member, Cliff Owen, is. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 2

3 Rev. Robert Owen ( ) by Paul H. Owen 3 [In the December issue, we left brothers Laurence and Edward Owen living together in Prince Georges County (1733 tax list). The story continues. Ed]. On March 25, 1742, Richard Snowden executed a deed conveying to Edward Owen, carpenter, for 40 pounds, the 200 acre tract Shepherd s Hard Fortune. This property was situated on the west side of the Patuxent adjoining Charles Forrest and Brothers Content, and had been patented by Richard Snowden on November 3, (P. G. Land Records, Liber Y, f.456). The location of Shepherd s Hard Fortune in the northwest section of Prince Georges County proved an incentive to join his neighbors and his brother Laurence in signing a petition in 1742 to divide the county from the mouth of Rock Creek, south to the bridge near Kennedy Farrill s, then east to the Patuxent. (Black Books, item 454). The Frederick County Court records list Laurence Owen as an Innkeeper who renewed his license from 1750 through His tavern was located on the road between Captain John s Bridge and Rock Creek Bridge. (Rice, pp. 66, 78, 102, 121, 131, 138). In 1748, their 1742 petition was granted and Frederick County came into being. Edward Owen was the second name listed among those who served on the Grand jury at the first court session held March, 1748/49, and again, at the March Court, 1749/50. At the next court session. in August, he was foreman of the jury, and served again in this capacity at the March Court, 1750/51. (Rice, pp 1, 31, 42, 53, 69). We have visited Prickett s Fort several times. The blacksmith there is a gentleman named John M. Boback. He was working on his dissertation that he titled: Indian Warfare, Household Competency, and the Settlement of the Western Frontier, 1749 to He was kind to send us several documents that related to the Haymond family. One was a journal kept by Rev. Thomas Haymond. Thomas was the son of Calder and Eleanor, nee Owen, Haymond, and was an itinerant Methodist circuit rider. In his journal, he makes numerous references to his Uncle Thomas Owen. So...Thomas Owen and Eleanor were siblings, confirming she was indeed an Owen. (Kathi Haymond dtd. Sept. 12, 2009). In 1738, Laurence Owen married Sarah Beale, daughter of Alexander Beale and Mary Harding. They had five daughters and one son, Robert, who was born in The will of Laurence Owen, born 1 May, 1714, signed May 1, 1761, named: daughter Elizabeth Offutt (b. 1742, wife of Nathaniel Offutt daughter Anne Hoult (b. 1744) daughter Mary Owen (b. 1746) daughter Barbara Owen (b. 1748) daughter Rachel Owen (b. 1750) son Robert Owen my heir at law (b. 1752) son-in-law Nathaniel Offutt Executor brother Edward Owen Executrix wife Sarah Owen witnesses: Wm. Williams, son of Thos, Nichs Haymond, & Basil Adamson. Lawrence and Edward were brothers as documented in Laurence s Will of (Frederick County, MD, Wills, Box 2, Folder 40). (continued on page 9).

4 DNA UPDATE 4 [Some of our newer readers have asked us about our DNA administrator and the exemplary work he has been doing for the Association. We are happy to reprint this profile of Dr. Athey. - Ed] A Profile We usually reserve a page for Dr. Whit Athey s UPDATE explaining the recent additions to our growing portfolio of genetic testing results. We will not have the pleasure of reading about our latest DNA-Cousins in this issue, but Whit (which is what we all call him) will be returning in June. You may not know that in addition to giving our association so much of his time, he also does the same kind of pro bono service as Editor of the Journal of Genetic Genealogy ( That journal is a place for people to publish their work in genetics as it applies to genealogy and anthropology. They also have an interest in the kind of inquiry which fascinates our Owen group. Dr. Athey has resigned as their Editor because of the overload and will Devote More of His Time To Our Project. It is hard to express our appreciation for what he has done for us and will continue to do for us. He apologizes for the current delay in updating our project web site, but will catch up with that soon (probably by the time you are reading this). As you know, Whit takes the raw data from FTDNA and other research facilities who have analyzed our members Y chromosome markers to see who has Owen male line connections. He groups members who match family groups expressing the same or similar Haplotypes. You can visit the project web site at any time and see the latest results: This is a pains-taking, time-consuming task. The Update which he publishes for us is the ultimate result. At the Biennial Reunion in Ashville, N.C., in 2007, he gave a Keynote speech about the exciting discoveries made possible by the race to reveal the entire human Genome. He later gave a workshop in which he traced the probable migratory patterns of early mankind and, using our Haplotype groupings, related the probable earliest place of residency for each of our Owen DNA Family Groups. We were all amazed, perhaps stunned, by what is being uncovered today. Dr. Athey has pledged to attend our 2011 Reunion (his mother was an Owen descendant and will, we hope, also attend the Reunion). There, he will conduct a DNA workshop for beginners and also a one-hour workshop to bring up to date our members who have submitted DNA samples since September, We hear so much praise for Whit Athey about his fine contribution to our Association and we take this opportunity to proffer our ardent gratitude. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

5 Countdown to New Harmony, Indiana 5 OFA Reunion, the Nitty Gritty The clock is ticking until we all gather for the 2011 reunion of the Owen Family Association in New Harmony, Indiana. In the last issue of the Newsletter, I wrote about what was being planned for the 2011 Reunion. Now, we must get into the subject of what this is going to cost, and what the procedures are for making reservations. Nobody likes to bring up the subject of costs, but that is just part of reality. I wrote in the last issue that reservations must be made ninety days before September 23, and that we have reserved forty rooms for September 23 rd and 24 th in the Riverbend Building of the New Harmony Inn and Conference Center. The rates, though steep, have been heavily discounted for the Owen Family Association because of our OWEN status, and are in line with what we were charged in Asheville, NC, four years ago. The price for a Standard Room, which has one queen bed, is $ plus tax per night. The rate for the deluxe room, with two double beds, is $ plus tax per night. To make reservations, call the reservations desk at the New Harmony Inn at , or , or go to the New Harmony Inn website at Have your credit card handy, as you will be reserving Friday night at the Inn. When you check in, they add Saturday night to the transaction (yes, the ninety day reservation is unusual but if made later, the rates will NOT be discounted. You don t want to know). The New Harmony Inn is the only hotel/motel in New Harmony. If you prefer lodging in another facility, our June issue will carry a list of those close enough for you to attend all our sessions at the Inn. For those who are flying in to Evansville Regional Airport, transportation is available from the airport to the Inn, a 25 mile trip. Ask the Inn s reservations clerk for information regarding that service. However, reservations for the Saturday evening dinner (and business meeting) have always been made through our Owen Family Association host, and the good news is that those reservations are not due until September 2 nd. The Inn s Red Geranium Restaurant will cater a great two Entree Buffet, consisting of Roasted Round of Beef and/or Boneless, Skinless Breast of Chicken with Fresh Tarragon Cream Sauce (take one or some of both). Your reservation with check for $27.00 per person (includes tip) should be made out to Owen Family Association and mailed to me at: Reunion Host Cliff Owen, 70 Oak Valley Dr., Holland, Michigan ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

He was also one of the founders of the Sardis United Methodist Church, one of the largest and oldest Methodist churches in Georgia. The issue of slavery split the Methodist Episcopal Church in antebellum times, with northerners essentially taking an anti-slavery stance, and southerners favoring the continuation of slavery. By 1845, the pro-slavery faction had formed the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, of which Bluett and his family were members. In fact, he and some of his siblings sold land inherited from their mother to the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, for one dollar for use as a meeting house. Rebecca Owen, a devout Methodist, died suddenly in 1848 of a mysterious sleeping sickness. The 1850 Census provides no record of Bluett, but shows that some of their children had gone to live with her sister and some had been taken in by Bluett s sister. The latest record we have of Bluett is the sale of some Shelby County acreage to Ezekiel Sanderlin on April 21, 1849, for $ There are unconfirmed accounts that Bluett went to Texas, and some say he accompanied his son, Erasmus, there. [We thank Sylvia Teague for this account, as will the known to be many researchers of Bluett Owen s line. Due to space limitations, this story will have to continue in June with Bluett s son, Erasmus, and the dramatic story of the life of Samuel; Son of Erasmus. Samuel Owen is the direct ancestor of the writer. Ed.] ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ FRESH TIP!

9 9 REV. ROBERT OWEN (continued from page 3). As early as 1751, the inhabitants of the new county began petitioning for a division of it, and also for a courthouse to be built near the land which Laurence Owen lives on. The reason given was the great inconvenience in attending court at Frederick Town due to the distance involved and the impassability of the Monocacy River at times. Petitions for a solution to these problems continued through 1769 and were, of course, not realized until Another petition, signed by Edward Owen, joined by his sons Robert, Edward, Jr., and Laurence, in 1756/9, requested the division of Prince Georges Parish; including also among the signatures were forebears Benjamin Perry, Thomas Nicholls, Sr., and Clement Beall. Being a small, unincorporated town, early Rockville was known by a variety of names, including Owen s Ordinary, Hungerford s Tavern, Daley s Tavern. The first recorded mention of the settlement which would later become known as Rockville, dates to the Braddock Expedition in On April 14, one of the approximately two thousand men who were accompanying General Edward Braddock through, wrote the following: We marched to Larance Owings or Owings Oardianary, a Single House, it being 18 miles and very dirty. Owen s Ordinary was a small rest stop on Rock Creek Main Road (later Rockville Pike), which stretched from George Town to Frederick Town, and was then one of the largest thoroughfares in the colony of Maryland. On November, 1769, Edward Owen, Senior, leased to Edward Owen, Junior, the dwelling plantation and house of Edward Senior where Edward Owen Junior now lives, consisting of 292 acres, commonly called Shepherd s Hard Fortune. Edward Owen Senior signed with his mark. Edward Junior signed his name to the lease. (Frederick County Land Records, Liber M, f ). Less than two years later, Edward, Sr., died intestate and, on February, 1771, Robert was appointed executor. An inventory by appraisors William Waters and John Baker valued his estate at 105 pounds, 9 shillings and 8 pence, with a final accounting showing a balance of 134 pounds. The next of kin approving this account were sons Thomas and Laurence Owen. Son Edward Owen, Jr. and Thomas Williams were named creditors. (Frederick County Inventory Accounts, Liber WD, No 15, f. 744). As Elizabeth was not named in the final accounting, it can be assumed the she had predeceased her husband. Children of Edward and Elizabeth Owen: 1. Robert, b. Feb. 1, 1729; m Mary (Edmonston) Beall, widow of Benjamin Beall 2. Edward, b. abt 1731, d. 1774; m. Ruth Carlisle (Fred Co Land Rcds, Liber W, f.290; Liber BD. f Thomas, b. 1736; d. after 1778; m. Rachel (Montg. Co. Land Records, Liber A, f Laurence, b. 1739; m. (1) Sarah Beall before 1774; (2) Sarah Hardy (M Co. Land Rec., Liber B, f. 280) 5. Eleanor b. 1737; d. 1785; m. Calder Hammond The will of Robert Owen, son of Edward, dated 11 May, 1779, was probated in Montgomery County, 4 July, He mentioned his wife, Mary, and named children: Edward Owen, Robert Owen, Washington Owen, Elinor Owen, Ann Owen, Elizabeth Owen, Mary Owen, Octavia Owen. All the children were minors. The tract, Shepherds Hard Fortune, where his deceased father, Edward Owen, had lived, was to be sold. His wife had a dower right to the remaining land, which was to go to his sons. The inventory of his estate, made in 1780, listed Laurence Owen, son of Edward, as nearest of kin. (MC Estate Records A, f. 175 & 245). On 4 November, 1769, Edward Owen, Junior, executed a deed which stated that Edward Owen, being legally possessed of part of resurvey on Friends Advise ( Friends Advice lay on a branch of Little Seneca Creek, putting it northeast of present-day Poolesville, probably in Sugarloaf or Sugarland Hundred), was conveying 200 acres of the tract to Lawrence Owen, for 100 pounds. Ruth Owen, wife of Edward Owen, Junior, relinquished her dower rights in the land. (FC Deeds M, f. 615).

(Frederick County Wills, Book A1, pp ). November, 1774: Lawrence Owen executed a deed conveying to Mary Owen, Robert Carlisle Owen, and David Owen, heirs of Edward Owen, Jr., deceased, 100 acres of Resurvey on Friends Advise, which Edward had paid for in his lifetime. Sarah Owen, wife of Lawrence Owen, relinquished her dower right in the land. (FC Deeds W, f. 2900). Sarah (nee Beall) Owen, who must have died soon after this date, was the cousin of Sarah Beall Owen, wife of Edward s brother, Lawrence. Ministers returns list a marriage performed by Reverend Joseph Threlkeld: Laurence Owen married Sarah Hardy, 22 June, 1780, in Montgomery County, Maryland. Sarah was born in (Maryland, 1776, census). The 1783 tax assessment for real estate listed in Montgomery County: Laurence Owen, of Edward, Friends Advice, 100 acres; value, 112 pounds, 10 shillings. On 15 October, 1784, Laurence Owen sold to John Belmear, for 275 pounds, 100 acres of resurvey on Friends Advice. Sarah Owen, wife of Laurence, relinquished her dower right. (MC Deed B, f. 280). Laurence Owen, with many farmers of tobacco, left Maryland in the late 1780s because of the depletion of the fields overgrown for tobacco crops. Maryland records show a deed, dated 2 August, 1800, from Benjamin White Jones, sheriff, to Robert Furgusen, which states that judgement was obtained by James Gordon and others, surviving partners of John Glassford & Co., against Elias Hardy, Jesse Philips, and Mary, his wife; Kinsey Hardy, Henry Wheeler, and Rebecca, his wife; Samuel Hardy, Frederick Burns, and Barbara, his wife; Laurence Owen, and Sarah, his wife; Samuel Allison, and Fielder, his wife; and Elizabeth Holland. (This list includes all the siblings alive for the Frederick Co., MD census of The mother, Fielder, was alive in 1776, but the father, Samuel, did not appear in that census. The only children identified in the Montgomery Co., MD, 1800 census, are: Jesse Philips, ; ; 0; 3 and Henry Wheeler: ; ), who were coheirs of Samuel Hardy, late of Montgomery County. The sheriff seized a tract of land, called Grandmothers Good Will, the property of Samuel Hardy, which was sold at public sale to Robert Furgusson, the highest bidder, for 6,100 pounds of tobacco. Grandmothers Good Will had been patented by James Grove in 1756, 60 acres which lay on the west side of a branch of Broad Run. (MC Deeds, B, f. 280). Broad Run lies west of present-day Poolesville and flows into the Potomac River southwest of it. Laurence Owen and wife, Sarah, nee Hardy, were alive at that time by virtue of the fact that their names were listed in the settlement. In the last issue, I had established that Lawrence Owen and Edward Owen were brothers and that may be critical in the link between Robert Owen and Edward. Owen. It indicates that Edward s son, Lawrence, and my ancestor, Lawrence, must be the same person. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ For Owens North, South, East, or West in September ALL ROADS LEAD TO NEW HARMONY, INDIANA ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
