I stumbled on this message board in researching Armenius Owen and his wife Almira. I am not related to the Owen family but have been researching Armenius who had 11 children, 6 son and 5 daughters. Armenius and his wife Almira are buried IN oak Grove Cemetery, Manchester, Washtena wCo., Michigan. Five of the sons of Armenius were in the Civil War, this is my focus on my research on the Owen family. In particular William. William who died in 1864 in Riga, Lenawee Co., Michigan is buried also on the plot with Armenius and Almira. I discovered through here and in some online trees, that Armenius was probably married 2 or maybe even 3 times.
I have been in the DAR membership data base and found all DAR members who are descendants of Armenius; father William Owen, born 12-29-1764 SHEFFIELD BERKSHIRE CO MASSACHUSETTS abd ded 5-16-1833 PENFIELD NEW YORK. I am a member of the DAR
I have correctly posted Armenius, Almira and William on findagrave. Other postings for the Owen family in Oak Grove, do not contailn ALL of the information.
I have cemetery records, and other info collected on ?Armenius to share.
In particular I am looking for information on 1 of the 5 Civil War vets, son of Armenius. James A. Owen born 1834. James is shown with wife Eliza and 2 sons in 1900 federal census in Missouri. Woudl like to know death date and burial of James.
Also would love to know if the book is available other than LDS. I have checked Amazon. Is there a new book???? I have not had good luck in the past obtaining books from the LDS, this has been some years, maybe it has changed. I don't see a film number in the LDS for this book.
