I am trying to find information on James W. Owen born 1808 in Kentucky and died 1873 in Wright, Missouri. Daniel Owen and Hannah Allison were his parents. He married Martha Ann McCaskill b 1825 in Tenn. and died 1883 in Wright, Missouri.
He was licensed to preach while living in Wright, Missouri. One of his children was named David Jackson Owen.
I have hit a wall as far as James W. Owen who married Martha Ann McCaskill. There was a age difference so maybe she was his second wife.
