Generation No. 3

5. SOLOMON5 OWENS II (STEPHEN4, SOLOMON3, JOHN2, JOHN1)4 was born 1794 in Barnwell District, South Carolina5, and died Abt. 1875 in Gadsden County, Florida. He married SARAH Abt. 1817 in Barnwell District, South Carolina. She was born 1796 in North Carolina5, and died Abt. 1865 in Gadsden County, Florida.

Notes for SOLOMON OWENS II:

Solomon Owens was born in South Carolina in 1794. He likely married Sarah in about 1817 when she would be 21. Their children were: James G. Owens, bAugust 1819 SC, an unknown son b c1822 in SC, and Annie Elizabeth Owens, b January 25, 1825 SC. Solomon's brother Joshua bought land in Gadsden County, Fl in 1827, and Solomon apparantly moved his family there shortly thereafter. Solomon is listed in the 1830 Gadsden County census as "Sol Owens." Solomon was listed in the 1840 census there. By 1845 Solomon owned 160 acres of land in Gadsden County, T3N, R3W,S11,E 1/2 of SE 1/4, NW 1/4 of SE 1/4, and NE 1/4 of SW 1/4. All of Sarah and Solomon's children after 1828 were born in Florida; the 1850 Census is in error for Sarah and the children.. On Sept 1, 1852 he purchased 80.44 ac in the same Sec 11: NE 1/4 of SW 1/4 and SE 1/4 of SE 1/4. According to the 1860 Census Sarah was born in 1796 in NC, and she evidently died in the1860's. In 1870 Solomon is listed with his daughter Mary living in the household of Charles and Elizabeth Blount. Interesting the Blount children are: Solomon, Elizabeth, Julia, Calvin, and Charles.

It is interesting that James G. Owens, Elizabeth Blount, and John Miles Owens all have a daughter named Julia.[10846.ftw]

Notes for JAMES G. OWENS II:

James G. Owens was born in August of 1819 in Barnwell District, South Carolina. He was the eldest son of Solomon and Sarah Owens, and grandson of Stephen Owens, cotton planters of Barnwell District since the 1780's. Stephen's father, Solomon, had purchased a 100 acre plantation in 1784; old Solomon may have come from North Carolina. About 1827 Solomon and Sarah Owens moved from Barnwell District to Gadsden County, Florida, with Solomon's brothers Joshua and Stephen Wesley Owens.

In the 1830's during the Second Seminole War, Gadsden County did not see much action. The residents did rally together to form militia units to fight against the Seminoles who were raiding plantations to the east.

The only major attack during this time was when Creek Indians attacked three sites in 1840. This was after the Second Creek War ended, but many Creeks came into the northern part of Florida to make raids. A homestead near Bristol was attacked. (Then part of Gadsden County, now part of Liberty County.) Second Seminole War Forts: Fort Apalachicola was established in 1833, and Fort Barbour in 1841. At Chattahoochee was the former U.S. Arsenal, which was started as a storehouse for weapons during the Second Seminole War. The arms issued here were mainly given to the Florida Militia. It was a remote post, and sometimes only had a single NCO to man the post. The arsenal saw a little excitement during the Civil War. The officers' quarters remain as part of the Florida State Hospital.

In August of 1836, when he was 17 years old, James enlisted at Quincey in Capts. Barry and McElvey's Company of Florida Volunteers for the Seminole War, being mustered into service as a private in Tallahassee after his enlistment. He enlisted for a term of three months at a time, and continued in actual service for one year, re-enlisting after each term expired. He was discharged at Tallahassee about July or August of 1837.

On August 15 of the following year, James,with his uncle Joshua Owens, enlisted in Capt. Isham Johnson's company, Fifth Regiment, Second Brigade, Florida Mounted Militia under Col. DuPont. The company was in service from August 15 to September 4, 1838, for 20 days.

In 1840, James, now 20 years old, again volunteered for service in the Florida Indian war, enlisting on April 16, 1840 at Quincey, Florida for at term of three months in the Company of Capt. Duncan Buie in the 1st Regiment (Bailey's) of Florida Mounted Militia commanded by Maj. Elias E. Blackburg, under the command of Gen. L. Reid. After this enlistment was over on June 16, 1840, James re-enlisted for another three months in the same company on July 1, 1840, with his uncle Stephen W. Owens and Charles Blount, his future brother-in-law. Stephen was wounded from a fall from his horse in September of 1840 during a night pursuit of Indians, suffering a crushed ankle and hernia. James was honorably discharged on November 4, 1840 at Tallahassee, Florida at the end of his enlistment. The following December 10 the three again enlisted in Capt George McElvey's Company of the 1st Regiment of Florida Mounted Militia commanded by Col. Blackburn for three months, during the first service enlistment of this company. James was discharged on March 14, 1841 at Charles' Ferry on the Sewanne River, whereupon they immediately re-enlisted in the same company for another three months. However, the companies of the regiment were discharge after six weeks' service on April 21, 1841, by order of the commanding officer, the militia all being dismissed from service at Tallahassee, Florida. James and Charles returned to Gadsden County from Tallahassee together, no doubt helping Stephen along with his injuries.

In 1841, probably after his military service was concluded, James married Lucinda Jane Mitchell, whose mother Mary Mitchell had been a landowner in Gadsden County, Florida, since 1835, and head of household there since 1830. She seems to be widowed a few years after Lucinda's birth, which had been in Georgia. In 1844 their first child was born, William Mitchell Owens, followed by John Harrison in June of 1847, Julia Caroline in April 1848, and Hugh Lafayette in March of 1949. In December of 1849 James purchased 120 acres of land from Edward I. Thomas for $1000 in northern Gadsden County, near the Georgia line.

On May 26, 1845, James G. Owens voted in the first statewide election held in Gadsden County. He also served as an election clerk at the polling place.

In June of 1850, in Gadsden County, Florida, James G. Owens owned 25 acres of improved land, and 135 acres of unimproved land. The value of his farm was $1300. James owned two slaves at this time, a 33-years old Negro man and a 14-year old boy. He gave the value of farming impliments and machinery as $150. He owned 2 horses, 1 mule, 3 milk cows, no oxen, and 5 other cattle. He had no sheep and no swine. James set the value of his livestock at $375. In the year ending June 1, 1850, James produced 500 bushels of Indian corn, 1450 pounds of tobacco, two 400 lb bales of cotton, and 160 pounds of sweet potatoes. The milk cows produced 125 pounds of butter in the same period. James also produced 120 gallons of cane molasses, and slaughtered animals for the period were valued at $120. Judging from the balance of the page of the census agricultural return, James G. Owens was a moderate farmer at this time, primarily engaged in tobacco production with some diversification in cotton, corn, and sweet potatoes. The butter production probably exceeded the use of the household and represented dairy produce for market.

On November 14, 1850, James purchased land from the State of Florida, 120 acres located in Gadsden county for $258.38. On November 7, 1856, James deeded "rights" (probably timber rights) to his father Solomon Owens on 360 acres in Gadsden County. On January 3, 1857, James sold this 360 acre tract, likely his entire farmstead, to William B. Smith and Andrew J. Smith for $3200. In 1860 the James G. Owens family moved to Walton County, some 100 miles to the west.

By 1860, with the move to Walton County, James G. Owens' farm operation had changed. He still owned 25 acres of improved land, but only 19 acres of unimproved land. James himself owned no slaves, but in his household his mother-in-law Mary Mitchell, though blind, owned a 42-year old man George, and a 45-year old woman Mary ( James' sister-in-law Polly Mitchell owned two Negro children). These two likely were James' only farm labor for an enlarged family. The value of the farm was given as $850, with $100 worth of farming impliments and machinery on hand. James now owned 7 horses and 3 mules, but retained only one milk cow and no other cattle. There were, however, 14 swine. Livestock was valued at a total of $450, reflecting James' new circumstance as a horse-trader. Only 400 bushels of Indian corn were produced, no cotton, and 1100 pounds of tobacco. But 80 pounds of sweet potatoes, half the previous census report, probably was totally consumed by the enlarged household, which consisted of not only James and Lucinda's growing family, but his mother-in-law and other in-laws, with their slaves. The old cow made 20 pounds of butter for the year, again likely consumed by the household. The livestock slaughtered in the past year totaled but $84, probably mostly if not entirely pork.

After the War, with one son having left home, in 1870 James now had 80 acres of improved land with 60 acres unimproved. James, now 50 years old, had in addition to two sons 24 and 20 years also had two colored farm hands, Eliza Mickey, 50, and John Brooks, 20, as labor on the farm. The farm was now valued at only $500, with the same impliments and machinery value of $100. The total amount of wages paid during the year, including value of board, was $350; this may represent the wages and board of the Negro members of the household listed in this census. James kept 2 horses on the place, but rather than the mules used 2 working oxen; he had no milk cows. Now James was a swine producer, with 20 head. Total value of his stock was $420; apparently swine and oxen had acquired greater value during Reconstruction. Only 150 bushels of Indian corn were produced during the year preceeding June 1, 1870, enough for the household and stock. By now James had discontinued tobacco production, but had instead become a cotton farmer, producing sixteen 400 lb bales of cotton. Fifty bushels of peas and beans were put up by the household, with 100 bushels of sweet potatoes. No butter was produced in absence of a milk cow. No value was given for animals slaughtered or sold for slaughter. Possibly James had waited this year to build up his swine herd before sale or slaughter, or the increased cash crop (cotton) production had allowed the household to purchase meat. Both circumstances may have existed. The total estimated value of all farm production, including "betterments and additions to stock," was given as $1900 for the year ending June 1, 1870. In the Eucheeanna area of Walton County, James G. Owens was at this time a more substancial cotton farmer, the value of his farm production exceeded by only one farmer listed on this page of the census return.

In 1875, James purchased from James M. Landrew and Mary Landrew 80 acres near Eucheanna.

In 1880, with all three sons on their own, two in Alabama and one in Walton County, James himself being sixty year old, the scope of the farm operation had been downsized. Now there were only 25 acres of improved land, with 44 acres of woodland and forest. The farm value was down to $350, including buildings, land, and fences. What was left of farming impliments and machinery was but $15 worth. Ten dollars were spent on building and repairing fences in 1879, and $45 had been spent on the purchase of fertilizer. Wages, including board, paid in 1879 for farm labor totaled $100; this was paid for 15 weeks of labor by white workers and 10 weeks by colored laborers. The total value of production, sold, consumed, or on hand June 1, 1880, was $400. Livestock included 3 horses and maybe one swine; James had gotten entirely out of the cattle business. He was now a chicken farmer: 15 barn-yard poultry and 80 other poultry, exlusive of spring hatching, producing 225 eggs in 1879. While in previous censuses poultry had not been ennumerated, this egg and chicken numbers would seem to exceed the needs of the smaller household, only three in 1880. Thus while some poultry may have been kept in previous years, that reported in 1880 likely represents a source of farm income. On 10 acres he produced 100 bushels of Indian corn (10 bu/ac). On 16 acres James produced four 400 lb bales of cotton (1/4 bale/ac). From 1/8 acre of cane 30 gallons of molasses were made, and working an acre of sweet potatoes 100 bushels were produced. Evidently some of this land was rented, the total of 27 1/8 acres in cultivation exceeded the 25 acres of improved land owned. James had in his later years become a beekeeper, producing 120 pounds of honey and 9 pounds of beeswax. By this time with his advancing age and need for hired labor, James had further diversified his farming practices, reducing cotton production and elimenating cattle and swine operations completely, both of which were more labor-intensive, his sweet potatoe production remaining the same, but diversifying into less labor-intensive operations, poultry and egg production and beekeeping. Based on comparisons to the nine other farmers listed on the page of the census return, James G. Owens remained a moderate farmer in 1880.

In January 1899, James was deeded by the Internal Improvement Act of Florida 40 acres diagonally adjoining the 80 acres he had earlier purchases from the Landrums. In August that year, he was deeded an adjacent 40 acres again by the Internal Improvement of Florida.

In 1900, James was a widower, Lucinda haveing died sometime after 1885. In the Census that year he indicated that he had been married 59 years, then "W" for widowed was written over the number. Living with him was his daughter Julia, yet unmarried. James G. Owens died December 23, 1902 in Walton County, Florida. The cause of his death is unrecorded.

 

 

Notes for LUCINDA JANE MITCHELL:

Because Mary Mitchell is living in the household of the James G. Owens family in 1860 in Walton County, Fl, she is most likely the mother of Lucinda.

Children of JAMES OWENS and LUCINDA MITCHELL are:

16. ANNIE ELIZABETH6 OWENS (SOLOMON5, STEPHEN4, SOLOMON3, JOHN2, JOHN1)11 was born January 8, 1825 in Barnwell District, South Carolina, and died April 6, 1901 in Gadsden County, Florida. She married CHARLES BLOUNT I11 December 24, 1843 in Gadsden County, Florida. He was born October 23, 1814 in Beaufort District, South Carolina, and died October 22, 1881 in Gadsden County, Florida.

Notes for ANNIE ELIZABETH OWENS:

Wish I could help you as much as you helped me! We have been stuck on Charles and Annie Elizabeth for some time now. Charles is my "significant other's" GGGrandfather, so you and he must be of the same  generation, or at least close. His name is Frank Blount and is 61. He was born in Gadsden Co., FL and all his family still lives there. We have been to visit Annie Elizabeth's and Charles's graves. They are buried at the Providence Baptist Church near Quincy. There are also a lot of Owens graves there, and I can probably get information on them next time we go up for a visit. Charles Blount was b. 23 Oct 1814 in Beaufort Co., SC and Annie Elizabeth Owens was b. 8 Jan 1825, also in Beaufort Co., SC. The birth dates we got from their grave stones, the places of bith from her application for window's pension from the Indian Wars. Charles died on the 23 Oct 1881, and she died 6 Apr. 1901.

The 1850 FL census lists their children as Robert, Sarah, Mary, and Charles. We know there was also a Soloman Franklin, as he is the GGrandfather of my Frank. I did not know of the others you mentioned. That is really all the information I have of Charles & Annie Elizabeth. I do have copies of her widow's pension application papers, and I believe they are signed by some Owens. I will look them up and let you know the names. I have all the Blounts from there up until present, but figured you were really interested in the Owens side, not the Blounts.  Will pass on anything else I come up with and hope you will do the same. If there is anything else you think I may have that will help you please let me know. We go to Gadsden Co. often and I can look up info for you. You have really been a great help to me, because I really do believe now that Soloman was Annie Elizabeth's father. In any case you and Frank are bound to be related. By the way, where is Eight Mile, AL???

Will talk to you again soon. Annette

Hi Scott...I found the copies of Annie Elizabeth Owen Blount's pension application and there are a few facts that may interest you. These came directly from the application papers which Annie signed with her X.(I gather she couldn't read or write.)

1. They were married in Gadsden Co., FL 24 Dec., 1843 by M. D. Cooper, Minister of the Gospel.

2. He died the 22nd of Oct., 1881 in Gadsden Co.

3. He fought in the Indian Wars and served as a Private in the company commanded by Capt. McElrey in the First Regiment of Florida Mtd.Militia. He enlisted on or about the 14th day of March, 1841, for the term on three months, and was discharged at Tallahassee on the 21st of Apr., 1841.

4. Annie Elizabeth describes her husband as about five ft. ten inches, black eyes, black hair and dark complexion. His occupation was a farmer.

5. She lists his birth place as South Carolina, County of Bufort West.

There are three sworn statements attached to the application:

1. The first is signed by E.D. Brown and T.J. Drake (according to the papers you sent me, the wife of Lafayette Soloman Owens was Clara C. Drake. So perhaps, T.J. Drake was Annie's brother's wife.) In the above statement, Drake and Brown state that Chatles Blount did die Oct. 22, 1881 and that his death was caused from consumption and with old age combinded. Brown states his age as 64 and Drake is 54.

2. The second is signed by L.S. Owens (and I assume that this is the Lafayette Soloman Owens mentioned in your papers.) He states that he knew Charles Blount since Blount was somewhere between 18 & 25 years of age. He states that Charles "came to my father's house when he first came to this country with some of my father's people. He states his age as 67 and his PO address as Quincy, Fla.

3. The last statemet is signed by John M. Owens (and I assume that this is John Miles Owens mentioned in your papers). He states that he also knew Charles from the time Charles was somewhere between 18 & 25 years of age. He further states that Charles was never married to anyone else but Annie Elizabeth and that Charles came to his father's house when he first came from South Carolina and he has known him ever since. He states his age as 70 and his PO address as Branchville, Fla. Sounds like Annie Elizabeth took three of her brothers with her when she applied for her pension. These statements were signed in 1889.

 That's all for now. Hope some of this is helpful to you. Let me know if you find any other leads and I will do likewise.

Annette

This is amazing. I wonder if you have a copy of the original. If so, could you send me a copy of what you have?

According to my theory, Lafayette Solomon and John Miles Owens were Annie Elizabeth's half brothers. Their mother was born in 1808, and would have been 13 when Annie was born in 1825. I think my GGgrandfather James G.Owens, who at the time of the pension application, was in Walton County, FL. The application and statements do establish that Annie Elizabeth Owens was of the household of Solomon Owens, father of L. S. and J. M. Owens.

17. JOHN MILES6 OWENS I (SOLOMON5, STEPHEN4, SOLOMON3, JOHN2, JOHN1) was born July 14, 1829 in Gadsden County, Florida, and died April 11, 1903 in Gadsden County, Florida. He married ELIZABETH A. BARLOW February 2, 1853 in Gadsden County, Florida. She was born September 26, 1836 in Florida, and died July 12, 1916 in Gadsden County, Florida.

Notes for JOHN MILES OWENS I:

John Myles Owens enlisted in Captain Smith's company of Independent Cavalry, Florida Volunteers, which later became Co B, 5th Battalion, Florida Cavalry, February 21, 1863, being recruited by Capt Rutherford for the War at Quincey, Florida. On enlistment he was paid a $50 Bounty. On September 30, 1863, he transfered to Captain McElvey's Company. On October 9, 1863, this company became Co D, 5th Battalion Florida Cavalry when this unit was organized. He was present with the 5th Battalion through 1864 and 1865 On March 4-6, 1865, the 5th Florida Cavalry Battalion was engaged as part of the Confederate forces at the battle of Natural Bridge, Florida. John M. Owens was honorably discharged at Tallahassee, Florida, May 12, 1865 when he was paroled as a prisoner of war..

Children of JOHN OWENS and ELIZABETH BARLOW are:

Child of CALVIN OWENS and ELIZABETH WILLIAMS is:

19. LAFAYETTE SOLOMON6 OWENS (SOLOMON5, STEPHEN4, SOLOMON3, JOHN2, JOHN1)12 was born July 15, 1838 in Gadsden County, Florida, and died September 17, 1909 in Gadsden County, Florida. He married (1) CLARA C. DRAKE December 2, 1866 in Gadsden County, Florida, daughter of JOSHUA DRAKE and ANN CLAY?.

He married (2) ALEMENA JANE STROM November 3, 1886 in Gadsden County, Florida, daughter of WILLIAM STROM and SARAH WETHINGTON. She was born September 9, 1854 in Gadsden County, Florida, and died July 2, 1932 in Gadsden County, Florida.

Notes for LAFAYETTE SOLOMON OWENS:

Lafayette Solomon Owens was born July 15, 1838 in Florida. According to his Pension Application, he says that he was born in Gadsden County, Florida. According to the Census of 1850 he was born in South Carolina; later Censuses, however, give his birthplace as Florida.

Lafayette S. Owens enlisted in Co A, 4th Florida Infantry on May 15, 1861 at Quincey, Florida for a term of 12 months. He entered service as 4th Sergernt of Co A, 4th Florida Infantry Regiment. Commanding the company at this time was C. A. Gee, during training at St. Vincent's Island. Capt Gee resigned May 23, 1862 ostincibly for a disability, but some testimony indicates that he was sharply disliked by his men, who tried to kill him on several occations. Afterward the 4th Florida was under the command of Col. E. A. Hopkins. Lafayette Owens was promoted to 2nd Sergernt in early 1862. On May 12, 1862 Lafayette was promoted to 2nd Lt. On December 20, 1862, Lafayette Owens was in combat with the regiment at Lebanon Pike, Tennessee. Later W. C. Gorman was captain of the company until he was killed, after which Lafayette was in command. He and the company were in action at the battle of Murphreesboro December 31, 1863-January 1, 1864. In July of 1863 Lafayette and the 4th Florida were engaged in the seige of Jackson, Mississippi. In September 1863, the 4th Florida were in action at the battle of Chickamauga, Georgia, Col.W. L. L. Brown commanded the 4th Florida from then until the end of the War. In his battle report of Chickamauga, Col. Brown stated "...Helm's Brigade falling back from my left abandoned a piece of captured artillery, which Co A, Lt. Owens commanding, detached from my regiment (the 4th Florida) and rescued the piece and carried it off the field. This left my regiment exposed to heavy fire of grape and cannister and I moved it by the right flank to join the rest of the brigade, but at the insistance of Major Graves, Cheif of ARtillery, Breckenridge Division, went to support of a battle a little by our front." Lafayette received his full promotion to Leiutenant in November of 1863, during the seige of Chatanooga. On the fateful day of November 25, 1863, in the battle for Missionary Ridge, the Union breakout from Chatanooga, the 4th Florida was over-run. Of 172 men taken into battle on Missionary Ridge, only 18 were not killed, wounded, or captured. Lt. Lafayette S. Owens was captured at Missionary Ridge and spent the rest of the War a prisoner of war at Johnson's Island, Ohio. He was paroled from Johnson' Island on June 13, 1865. He was never wounded in action during his service nor did he suffer from any disease.

In 1905 when he made application for a pension from the State of Florida, Lafayette had three small children, ages 8-13, living with he and his wife on their 400 acre farm. He stated he had three sons and four daughters who could not provide him support. On his farm he earned $75.00 annually. In this application he gave as his reason "I am over the age of sixty-five years and by reason of disabilities incident to old age am unable to earn a living by manuel labor." Dr. J. W. Scott, physician, found Lafayette to be " an old man 67 years of age. His physical condition was good up to 6 or 8 month ago, when his eyesight began to fail. On account of which he is unable to earn a living by labor." Lafayette attested that in 1905 he owned one horse, one mule. 10 head of cattle, six hogs, one old buggy, and one wagon with household and kitchen furniture. This pension application was not approved by the Board of Pensions due to his having too much property. On June 7, 1907, Lafayette wrote the Attourney General's office in Tallahassee about this. In reply W. H. Ellis explained that it "was disallowed on account of the value of your property over-reaching the eight hundred dollar mark, but this will not exclude you under the new law enacted at the recent session of the Legislature." An application was enclosed, and on June 19, 1907 Lafayette once applied for a pension for his Confederate service. The reason for application was simply "I am sixty-nine years of age." This application was filed in the Pension Office on July 2, 1907 and approved December 4, 1907. Lafayette received $120.00 per year, paying from July 2.

Under the Act of 1909 Lafayette once again made application for a pension for his Confederate service on July 21st of that year. According to this act, the property limit was extended to $5000. Lafayette listed his property as: 280 acres in Gadsden County, Florida- $1000, cattle, horses and other livestock- $540, personal property- $500, giving his total estate the value of $2040. He states that he had been receiving $120 per year from his pension for which he had applied in 1907. Dr. D. B. Williams, physician, found Lafayettte to be suffering from chronic Bright's Disease. This application was filed in the Pension Office August 7, 1909 and approved August 25, 1909. Lafayette was to receive $120 per year starting from July 1, 1909.

Unfortunately just one month after this was approved, Lafayette Solomon Owens died. Bright's blindness is a sequelae of uremia from chronic renal failure. Thus likely Lafayette suffered from kidney disease which became fatal in September of 1909. His widow, Allie J. Strom Owens, lost no time in making application for her own pension support on October 4, 1909.

He married JANE M. DOSS January 17, 1872 in West Greene, Greene County, Alabama, daughter of NANCY A. DOSS. She was born January 5, 1836 in Mississippi14, and died April 22, 1923 in West Greene, Greene County, Alabama14.

Notes for WILLIAM MITCHELL OWENS:

William Mitchell Owens was born in Gadsden County, Florida in 1844. The family lived in the northern part of the county near the Georgia line, in the area now know as Dogtown. In 1860 the familiy moved to Walton County, Florida, where William worked on the farm with his father and presumably with the two slaves of his grandmother, Mary Mitchell, who was living with the family in 1860.

In February of 1862 William enlisted in the Confederate service, probably in a local militia unit for one year; he was 17 and a half when he enlisted. This militia may have been engaged in security of the local St. Andrews Bay Salt Works in southern Walton County, where John Harrison was employed. In April of 1863, after his first year enlistment was up, he enlisted for a bounty of $50 in the 6th Alabama Cavalry, Company K, for the duration of the War, being enlisted by Captain Newsome Taunton, of the 51st Alabama Infantry, of Clanton's Brigade of which the 6th Alabama Cav. was a part. William was listed as 19 years old on the company muster roll of April 3, 1863, but he was yet eighteen. Company K was commanded by Captain Alexander C. Monroe. It is unknown in what battles Company K took part; William may have been in combat at Ten Islands in north Alabama, September, 1864,and Canoe Creek, Florida, March 1865, when the 6th Alabama Cavalry lost their battle flag (now in the Alabama Archives). William evidently was not captured in the latter battle, as was a large number of the regiment; they may have regrouped to the north in Coffee Springs, Coffee County, Alabama, where he was paroled in August of 1865, barely a month before his 21st birthday. It is not known where he was surrendered; he was paroled in Coffee Springs, Coffee (now Geneva) County, Alabama.

In 1868 he registered to vote in Walton County, Florida on August 31; eighteen days later his father and brother John Harrison, who was remembered by Myrtle Barrow as a staunch Republican, both registered together. Possibly James G. and John Harrison were both Republicans, and William was of Democrat persuasion.

The next year (after U.S. Grant had been elected president on the Republican ticket), William moved to Pleasant Ridge, Greene County, Alabama. What caused him to move to this locale is unknown; in the 1870 Census he was living in the household of W.S. Knowles of Georgia. Both were farmers, William having real estate of $1000. On September 19, 1871, he joined the Sardis Methodist Church, on profession of faith. On January 17 of the next year he married the widow Jane M. (Doss) Carnes. Five days later on January 22, 1872, William entered into a sharecropper's agreement with J. M. Quarles of Sumter County for an advance of $300 for purchasing provisions, necessary team, labor, and farming utensils to make a cotton crop on the James Duncan plantation. The entire cotton crop was to be relinquished to Quarles for this advance. This evidently was William's beginning in farming in Greene County. On July 11, 1879, their only child was born, and died. In 1880 the household contained only William and Jane. In 1900, Sally Skipper, a young Negro girl, lived with the childless couple. In the Census of 1910, only William and Jane made up the household.

William applied for a pension as an Alabama Confederate veteran in 1915, at which time he owned 80 acres of land, valued at $200, a horse, nine cattle, some swine, and a gold watch. His physical condition, as described by A. B. Moore, was "nearly blind, and unable to do physical labor." When he died in 1918, possibly due to pneumonia in the influenza epidemic, which also took the life of his sister-in-law, his grave marker was provided by Mr. Frank Hardy, a kindly batchelor in the West Greene area.

Child of WILLIAM OWENS and JANE DOSS is:

25. JOHN HARRISON7 OWENS (JAMES G.6, SOLOMON5, STEPHEN4, SOLOMON3, JOHN2, JOHN1)15 was born June 17, 1847 in Gadsden County, Florida, and died November 18, 1897 in Walton County, Florida15. He married FRANCES EUGENIA FLOURNEY January 1874 in Eucheeanna, Walton County, Florida, daughter of JOHN FLOURNEY and MARY KNOWLES. She was born April 10, 1859 in Brundige, Pike County, Alabama15, and died November 2, 1924 in Ponce de Leon, Holmes County, Florida15.

Notes for JOHN HARRISON OWENS:

John Harrison Owens was the second child and son of James G. and Lucinda M. Owens. He was born June 17, 1847 in Gadsden County, Florida, near the Georgia line. He was thirteen years old when the family moved to Walton County, Florida, in 1860. When his older brother William joined the Confederate service, possibly in a local Florida militia in February of 1862, John went to work at a salt works, most likely the St. Andrews Bay Salt Works in southern Walton County. It is possible that during 1862 and early 1863 William was a member of the security forces for the salt works, and indeed may have enlisted therein to be near John. After the War John and his father registered to vote in September of 1865 in Walton County. By 1870 John was the oldest son helping his father on the cotton farm, producing 16 four hundred pound bales in 1869.

Around this time he met Frances Eugennia Florney, whose family had moved to Walton County after the War. He was ten years older than she. January 10, 1871 John Harrison was deeded 40 acres by Internal Improvements of Florida near the James G. Owens place. In January of 1874 they were married in Eucheeanna, possibly in the Euchee Valley Presbyterian Church. The very next year their first child was born, Milliard Mitchell Owens, followed two years later with Mary Ola and then Eress Eugenia in 1880. The census that year indicates the couple living in a separate voting district from the James G. Owens household, with the three chidren. John Harrison was a Republican politically, and evidently voted regularly as he appeared on several juror lists during these years. He was primarily a farmer in Walton and adjacent Holmes counties, but in the 1890's was appointed postmaster of the Westville post office in Holmes County. This was located in the store of a Mr. Florney.

In June of 1883 a daughter Pamelia was born to the Harrison Owens' and Julia Elizabeth followed the next year. In 1886, Pamelia died at the age of 3, possibly from some childhood disease which were frequently fatal in those days. The next year, twins were born; the boy died shortly after birth, and the girl, Ida Cornelia, died about 4 months later. Another daughter was born in December of 1889, Johnnie. A son Everett Lafayett was born two years later.

In late 1897 Millard was away from the Walton County homestead, working in Holmes County when he contracted typhoid fever. John Harrison decided to travel to Holmes County to nurse Millard, leaving Francis heavy with her tenth child. John, who was always in good health, himself contracted typhoid fever and died November 18. Ten days later his youngest son, Walton Mitchell Owens, was born.

In the summer of 1900, Everett Lafayett, eight years old, was visiting on the farm of John Florney in Westville. He went out to the field to watch the men and boys work. He got too hot or suffered sunstroke; he did not recover from the illness which followed, which may have been some form of encephalitis or pneumonia.

Children of JOHN OWENS and FRANCES FLOURNEY are:

26. HUGH LAFAYETTE7 OWENS (JAMES G.6, SOLOMON5, STEPHEN4, SOLOMON3, JOHN2, JOHN1) was born March 6, 1849 in Gadsden County, Florida17, and died December 17, 1915 in Pleasant Ridge, Greene County, Alabama. He married MARGARET KATHERINE GRANTHAM December 23, 1885 in Pleasant Ridge, Greene County, Alabama, daughter of JOEL GRANTHAM and ELIZABETH CAMPBELL. She was born November 19, 1855 in Livingston, Sumter County, Alabama18, and died January 17, 1919 in Pleasant Ridge, Greene County, Alabama18.

Notes for HUGH LAFAYETTE OWENS:

Hugh Lafayette Owens was born in Gadsden County, Florida, just north of Tallahassee near the Georgia border. He was the youngest child of James G. and Lucinda Jane (Mitchell) Owens. Hugh's father purchased his last tract of land in Gadsden County nine months after Hugh was born. In the 1860 the family moved to Walton County, Florida; early land records are not availible to indicate when James G. Owens purchased land in this new home.

In 1860, the household consisted of Hugh, his older brothers William and John Harrision, their sister Julia Caroline, parents James G. and Lucinda Jane, Lucinda's mother Mary Mitchell (who was blind), and presumably Lucinda's brother, William Mitchell (who was "insane from fall from house (or 'horse')") with Polly Ann Mitchell, possibly William's wife (who owned two slaves, a Negro boy and girl). Mary Mitchell also owned two slaves, of age to be field hands; James G. Owens was not a slaveholder in 1860 as he had been ten years before. Hugh was twelve years old when the War Between the States began, and he reached adolesence in a nation fighting for its independence. The end came only months after Hugh was sixteen. In 1870 he was a farm laborer in the household of his father in Walton County, Florida.

In the 1870's he moved to Pleasant Ridge, Greene County, Alabama, living alone next door to his brother William and Jane. By this time he had acquired land, being listed as a farmer. In the 1880's Hugh was employed as herdsman for the purebred Jersey herd of Amos Horton, a herd of some reputation at the time; a wing of the Horton home, built by William Horton in the 1840's, was moved to provide a dwelling for the Hugh Owens family. This may have been the family's first home (it was the only portion of the antebellum big house to be unscathed by the arson fire of 1938, which destroyed the remainder of the Horton home). On July 27, 1882, Hugh joined the Sardis Methodist Church in West Greene, where William and Jane were members. He came on letter from a Presbyterian church (the records read "the Presbyterian"); this may have been the Euchee Valley Presbyterian Church, in Walton County, Florida, where his father, mother, and brother John Harrison were later buried.

In December of 1885 he married Margaret Katherine Grantham; Kate's younger brother, Joel, was a member of Sardis church and may have introduced the couple. About 1888 Hugh received a letter of dismission from Sardis Church to join with the "Presbyterian at Ridge." During this time their first children were born, Everett Clarence (listed "Clarence Everett" in the Pleasant Ridge Presby. Church list of baptism), and a twin daughter who died shortly after birth. In July of 1890 Hugh and Kate's second child was born, Elmo Lafayette; November 1 of this year Hugh was received on his letter from Sardis into the communion of Pleasant Ridge Presbyterian Church. In September of 1892, a third son was born, James Wilton. On May 10, 1897, Hugh Lafayette Owens was elected a Ruling Elder of this church. Hugh and Kate's only surviving daughter, Evelyn Emogene, was born in August of 1897.

Hugh served as Ruling Elder of Pleasant Ridge Presbyterian Church until his death in 1915, acting as Clerk Pro Temp and travelling to presbytery meetings on at least two occations. He died with prostatic cancer after a prolonged illness, as remembered by his oldest grandchild, Carol Elizabeth Owens, who remembered her grandfather as being very thin and frail when she saw him on his sickbed.

OWENS FAMILY HISTORY:

The history of the Owens family in northwestern Greene County began with the migration of two brothers from Walton County, Florida. William Mitchell Owens and Hugh Lafayette Owens were the eldest and youngest sons, respectively, of James G. and Lucinda Jane (Mitchell) Owens. They were both born in Gadsden County, Florida where their parents were married, William on September 6, 1844, and Hugh on March 6, 1849. There James farmed tobacco and some cotton. About 1857 James G. Owens moved his family from Gadsden County to Walton County, settling in an area about ten miles south of where DeFuniak Springs would later be developed. Here James raised horses and mules with tobacco as the major cash crop with no cotton.

William served in the War Between the States, first for a year in a Florida militia company. After his enlistment was up, William enlisted in Company K of the 6th Alabama Cavalry on April 3, 1863, receiving a bounty of $50 for joining. The 6th Alabama served most of the war in Alabama, engaged at Ten Islands in north Alabama, and suffering severe defeat at Canoe Creek in western Florida. In the latter battle, the battle flag and a number of the regiment were captured. William was paroled in August of 1865, evidently having escaped capture at Canoe Creek.

In 1869 William moved to Greene County, Alabama. It is not known why he chose to move to this area. He settled in the West Greene area. On September 19, 1871, he joined the Sardis Methodist Church, on profession of faith. On January 17 of the next year he married the widow Jane M. Carnes. Five days later on January 22, 1872, William entered into a sharecropper's agreement with J. M. Quarles of Sumter County for an advance of $300 for purchasing provisions, necessary team, labor, and farm implements to make a cotton crop on the James Duncan plantation in Greene County. The entire cotton crop was to be relinquished to Quarles for this advance. This evidently was William's beginning in farming in Greene County. On July 11, 1879, their only child, a daughter, was delivered stillborn. In 1880 the household contained only William and Jane. In 1900, Sally Skipper, a young Negro girl, lived with the childless couple. In the Census of 1910, only William and Jane made up the household.

William applied for a pension as an Alabama Confederate veteran in 1915, at which time he owned 80 acres of land, valued at $200, a horse, nine cattle, some swine, and a gold watch. His physical condition at this time, as described by A. B. Moore, was "nearly blind, and unable to do physical labor." When he died November 28, 1918, possibly due to pneumonia in the influenza epidemic which also took the life of his sister-in-law, his grave marker was provided by Mr. Frank Hardy, a kindly bachelor in the West Greene area.

Hugh Lafayette Owens was twelve years old when the War Between the States began, and he reached adolescence in a nation fighting for its independence. The end came only a month after Hugh was sixteen. In 1870 he was a farm laborer in the household of his father in Walton County, Florida. This year the James G. Owens farm produced hogs and cotton but no tobacco.

Sometime in the 1870's Hugh moved to Pleasant Ridge, Greene County, Alabama, living alone next door to his brother William and Jane in 1880. By this time he had acquired land, being listed as a farmer. On July 27, 1882, Hugh joined the Sardis Methodist Church in West Greene, where William and Jane were members. He came on letter from a Presbyterian church; this may have been the Euchee Valley Presbyterian Church in Walton County, Florida, where his father, mother, and brother John Harrison were later buried. Later in the 1880's Hugh was employed as herdsman for the purebred Jersey herd of Amos Horton, a herd of some reputation at the time. A wing of the Horton home, built by William Horton, was moved to provide a dwelling for the Hugh Owens family. This may have been the family's first home (it was the only portion of the antebellum big house to be unscathed by the arson fire of 1938, which destroyed the remainder of the Horton home).

On December 23, 1885 Hugh married Margaret Katherine Grantham, daughter of Joel and Elizabeth Dorcas (Campbell) Grantham, a teacher in the Pleasant Ridge Academy. Kate's younger brother Joel, Jr. was a member of Sardis church and may have introduced the couple. About 1888 Hugh received a letter of dismission from Sardis Church to join with the "Presbyterian at Ridge." During this time their first children were born on July 5, 1888, Everett Clarence and a twin daughter who died shortly after birth. In July of 1890 Hugh and Kate's second child was born, Elmo Lafayette; on November 1 of this year Hugh was received on his letter from Sardis into the communion of Pleasant Ridge Presbyterian Church. In September of 1892, a third son was born, James Wilton. On May 10, 1897, Hugh Lafayette Owens was elected a Ruling Elder of the Pleasant Ridge church. Hugh and Kate's only surviving daughter, Evelyn Imogene, was born in August of 1897.

Hugh served as Ruling Elder of Pleasant Ridge Presbyterian Church until his death in 1915, acting as Clerk Pro Temp and traveling to presbytery meetings on at least two occasions. He died with cancer after a prolonged illness, as remembered by his oldest grandchild, Carol Elizabeth Owens Massingale, who remembered her grandfather as being very thin and frail when she saw him on his sickbed.

Hugh Lafayette Owens' four children established the Owens clan in Pleasant Ridge. Everett C. Owens married Bessie Harkness Horton, daughter of Moses B. and Civille (Harkness) Horton. They met while Everett was working as a grocery clerk in the store of William Taylor Horton in Pleasant Ridge and boarded with the Mose Horton family who lived nearby. Mose and Civille did not approve the marriage, so Everett and Bessie boarded the train in Eutaw and were married in Meridian, Mississippi by a minister there August 8, 1911. The next year Everett got a loan from Aliceville Bank and Trust Company to begin cotton farming. They remained in Pleasant Ridge and raised their family there. Everett and Bessie had six children: Carol Elizabeth, Everett Clarence, Jr., Robert Bettus, Civille Harkness, Kenneth Horton, and Betty. Everett served as a deacon and later as an elder of the Pleasant Ridge Presbyterian Church. He died on February 22, 1948 in Pleasant Ridge.

Elmo Lafayette Owens married Bessie Mae Horton, daughter of George Algernon and Anna (Stuart) Horton, on July 29, 1913 at the Methodist Church in Eutaw. They had three children: Anna Katherine, Mary Elizabeth, and George Lafayette Owens. Elmo also served as a deacon of the Pleasant Ridge Presbyterian Church. After their children were born, business interests in cotton ginning caused Elmo to move his family to Aliceville. He died there June 7, 1949.

James Wilton Owens married Velma Mae Freeman, daughter of Pugh E. and Emily (Horton) Freeman, on May 21, 1913, at the Harlon Williams home in West Greene. James farmed in Pleasant Ridge near the home of his parents and the Grantham clan of Pleasant Ridge. James and Velma had six children: James Wilton, Jr., Hugh Warren, Norris William, Richard Edward, Emily Margaret, and Marcia Horton Owens. Wilton Owens died January 8, 1948 in Pleasant Ridge.

Evelyn Imogene Owens married Richard Harlon Williams on October 19, 1913 in Pleasant Ridge. They established their home in West Greene where Harlon farmed. They had four children: Harlon Owens, William Lafayette, Eugene, and Dorothy Williams. Evelyn Owens Williams died in June of 1981 in West Greene.

Notes for EVERETT CLARENCE OWENS II:

Everett C. Owens, Jr. was born in 1914 just one year before his grandfather Hugh Lafayette Owens died. "Fate" likely just bearly had opportunity to enjoy his first grandson. Everett's younger brother Robert or "Bob" was his constant companion, sharing chores, milking cows, hauling cotton, scaling logs in their father and uncles' saw mill, and fighting each other. Not infrequently did the elder Everett have to take the switch to the boys. He with the rest of his siblings rode a school bus to Eutaw High School after the grammer school in Pleasant Ridge was completed. A favorite of Everett's in school was literature, particularly Shakespear and Coleridge's "Rime of the Ancient Mariner." While he wanted and knew all the lines of Mark Anthony in "Julius Cesar" he only got parts such as Second Citizen, with lines such as "Hail Cesar!"

Everett graduated from Eutaw High School in 1932, and joined the Civilian Conservation Corps in July 1933, the year of its inception by FDR, when it was administered by the U.S. Army. He was in a CCC camp in Bay Minnette until December 1933 and worked on what is now Claude Kelly State Park. The activities of the camp included clearing trees and building roads in the woods. During this time he participated in the boxing matches held in the camp. In 1934 he enrolled at Alabama Polytechnic Institute at Auburn.

After graduation in May 1938, Everett was employed by the Soil Conservation Service, Montgomery, Alabama, as a Soil Conservation Field Service Technician for one year, September 1938 to September 1939. In this capacity he planned cropping systems and supervised work in Butler County, Alabama. Also he farmed on a beef cattle, corn, and cotton farm.

In September 1939 Everett took a position with Farm Security Administration as a County Agricultural Agent, at Troy, Alabama. He worked in this position until March 1942, when he entered active service with the United States Army. In this position with Farm Security, Everett supervised the making of farm loans, use of loans, and farm work. He checked on crop and chattel security of loans, also collecting and making payments of loans when due.
