Owens Family of Currituck and Tyrrell Counties, NC

Surnames: Owens
This is for or anyone researching the line of John Owens who wrote his will 16 Sep 1748 in Tyrrell Co., NC or Adam Owens who was born ca. 1748 and d. 1802 in Tyrrell Co., NC. I am thrilled to be able to share this information. After 15 years of searching, I have found proof that Adam was John's son. An Orphan bond in 1764 appoints Thomas Owens his guardian and states that Adam is the son of the deceased John Owens. All of John's children were under the age of 18 when he wrote his will, so I don't know who their original guardian was, possibly John's wife Ann but most likely a male relative or friend. Anyone wanting more information can email me, I will be happy to share.

Surnames: Harrell, Crank
I have Starky Harrell and his wife Henrietta Smith both of Hertford Co., NC in my data base, only because of their son Taylor Smith Harrell, Jr., b. 30 Nov 1874 in Hertford. He died 25 Mar 1945 in Currituck Co., NC. He married Mamie B. Crank. I don't have their date or place of marriage but it was most likely in Pasquotank Co. where they met and before 1902 when their son Horace Harrell was born.

I did not have any other children listed but will add Bessie M. as Taylor's sister.

Thanks for the information. I have been looking for information on Samuel Tilden Owens and his family for years. I met him as a child when he came to a family reunion and stayed with us for a couple of weeks.
