I am interested in any information on the Ovens family. I have tracked us back to Alexander Ovens 1815-1875 who married Martha McAninich (1824 -?) in Coleraine Londonderry Ireland in 1849.
I have Death and marriage certificates for Alexander, Martha and some information about their children who emigrated back to Scotland then Pennsylvania USA. I also Have Alexander in Ireland, Griffith’s Valuation, 1848-1864 (Lessor: William Moore County: Londonderry Barony: Coleraine Parish: Macosquin Townland: Learde)
Alexander's father was Hugh (1778-1858) I found him in the 1796 Flax Grower's list listed in Leitrim & Fermanagh.
I am sure that these Ovens are related to the Robert and Isabella mentioned above but, can not determine the relationship. I do have quite a bit of information on Alexander and Martha's children. Unfortunately I don't have any information on Alexander's siblings or his father Hugh's siblings. I believe Robert may fit in here someplace.
Some of the Surnames Alexander and Martha's children married with are: Hughes, Leslie, Eaton & Sargent.
