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.

My fifth great grandfather's name was James W. Owen and he was born right around 1808. You said he was in Missouri and Tennessee, but that you can't find any other info and that the woman he was married to may have been his second wife. I remember my great grandmother telling me that his first wife died early on and that supposedly he left the rest of the family and did not return. I am from Kentucky (also where he started my branch of the family tree). I'm interested to see if they are the same James Owen and if maybe he started a new life in a new state. Because this was so long ago, it was common for men to change their history including birthplace. Let me know if you'd like to discuss further.

Thank you for your response. I have information on his descendants but nothing before he married Martha Ann McCaskill in Missouri. They had four children one of which was David Jackson Owen, b. December 05, 1865, Winona, Missouri. He was my husband's great grandfather. James William Owen was ordained: 1855, Methodist Episcopal Church, South OBIT: August 13, 1873, St. Louis Christian Advocate The obit did not give any information from Kentucky. A living family member and descendant of James William Lee Deprophet Owen (James W. Owen's son) remembers being told that James W. had "raised" another family before marrying Martha McCaskill and based on age this makes sense. It would be wonderful if your James W. and my husband's James W. were one and the same. Would love to know his parent's name and any other information you have on him. I found a James W. that seemed to fit the puzzle but he was born in Ohio and my James W. was born in Kentucky. I will send all the information on his life in Missouri if you are interested. Thanks again for your reply. I am sending you my email address. Clara Lou Owen owen.ok@gmail.com

I sent a reply but didn't hear from you or didn't receive if you sent. I am still hoping I will. I have been researching for years to find out about his life before he married the second time. I have all the information from the time he married until he died. Clara Owen
