i see by the list of people going to Mason co. ky in 1783, there are some OWENS on the list. i am looking for Joshua owens who married Elizabeth POWELL. i think they had children samuel and nancy. Joshua was married to Leticia GRIGSBY first and had children by her. Do you
know anything about this family. I have read that they went to Mason co. Ky.
Reseraching genealogy of a SINGLETON line that has Manoah and relatives coming to Kentucky before and during 1779, and were in the Bryant's Station seige. Simon Kenton was around Kentucky at the same time as
Abdan Kenton Singleton's immediate ancestors. Wondered if there might have been some blood connection or did they name their son Kenton out of
respect? Abdan's father was George Alexander SINGLETON (b. 1846-7, d. circa 1894) and whose mother was Elizabeth MURPHY (whose mother was
Priscilla "LEACH??"); whose grandfather was Moses SINGLETON (b. 1801-2
KY, d. after 1870,KY) and whose mother was Isabella LEACH, b. 1803-4,KY). I have traced the family back pretty far and don't find the KENTON surname, but wondered about the connection. Any help or leads
appreciated. C. Kirk King
I am a Cousin rather than a KENTON. I'm a DOWDEN descendant, from Jane
DOWDEN whose sister married Simon. Jane and her husband William OWEN
went to Ohio and Champaign Co IL. There's one descendant still there.
What do you have on the DOWDEN and OWEN lines and what do you want?
Thanks to a 5th cousin I have a lot of OWEN information. I really don't
have much on the others - the CLELAND, SMITH, EDMONDSTON families, but
I've been told there are others who have researched them. Are you including Cousin's ancestors in your data base, or just going back on the KENTON and MILLER lines?
I look forward to hearing from you!

I still don't even know if I'm a Kenton Kin. Still desparately trying to
find any information on Mason OWENS, or at least someone else that was
related to him. I do believe that man hid in the woods somewhere most of
his life! :-) However, in the search for Mason, I have become completely
intrigued by Mr. KENTON and his life..how very interesting!
Thank you for cluing me in on you new web site. As you may or may not
remember my connection to the KENTON's is some what remote. My GGGGGGGG
Grandparents were Richard OWENS and Mary BERRY. I am related thru their
daughter Mary, their son Jeremiah was the husband of Jane Kenton. If this
relationship is not too remote and you would like a copy of my gedcom
information let me know and in what detail. I have often considered doing
the same for the NICHOLS line and would be interested in what rules you
establish for submission and what processes you develope for deployment.
Wondering if you can help me. The 1850 Mad River twp, Champagne Co. Ohio
census lists Thomas Kenton age 75 (I am working from the assumption that this
is Wiliam and Mary Kenton's son) as h-o-h for hhld nr. 32 on pg 434. Living
with Thomas and "S" Kenton are a family of 5 people, all born in Ohio. This
family looks like 3 generations and I am not sure of the surname. It looks
like it could be MOUSER. The given names are Elizabeth 46, Thomas (K?) 23,
Mary 22, Merrill 8/12, and John 50, in that order. Also listed in this
Thomas Kenton's hhld is JUDA KENTON age 23 female. Do you know who these
people are and have I got the right Thomas Kenton? His wife is supposed to
be Kesiah CRUTCHFIELD but the "S" doesn't fit unless it's a nickname or
unless Thomas had more than one wife. Please help.

My 4th great grandfather was James KENTON who was born in Kentucky and lived
in Salem Township, Campaign County Ohio in 1850. Family legend says the
James Kenton was related to Simon Kenton but I don't know whether he was a
son, grandson, nephew, etc.
I'm still trying to find someone who might have information on Mason
OWENS, b. Sep 8, 1760 in Prince William Co., VA, son of Jane KENTON and
Jeremiah OWENS. He may be the father of my 3g gmother, Elizabeth OWENS
Here's what I have to go on:
Elizabeth OWENS was b.1784-1785 in VA, married Samuel BARTLETT possibly
abt. 1805, place unknown. In 1806 they had a dau., Nancy, in Adair
Co.?, KY (this is from IGI, so needs to be verified). In 1825 they are
in Henry Co., KY where Samuel signs the marriage bond for Nancy's
marriage to William TINGLE.
Also in Henry Co., KY:
1815 Polly TINGLE (f:Jasper) md. Henry OWENS 14 Oct 1815
1822 Mason OWENS md. Kitty TINGLE Oct 31, 1822
1822 Fanny OWENS (f:Mason) md. Edward OLIVER 23 Jan 1822
I don't know if this is the same Mason, or a son, but..
By 1830 Samuel, Elizabeth and family settle in Montgomery Co., IL. In
the 1840 Census of Montgomery Co., Mason OWENS is listed in the 70-80
age group and there is one male b. 1825-1830 (only two in household).
It is indicated Mason is a Revolutionary War Veteren.
Another possible link between the BARTLETT and KENTON-OWENS family:
>From Clark Co., KY Land Records, Deed Book 2, page 19
1796 Deed from Simon KENTON to John BARTLETT, 100 ACRES
One of the BARTLETT families in Clark Co., KY had gone there from
Loudoun Co., VA and had a Samuel in it. I haven't yet determined if
this is my Samuel's family. John could be a brother, or even his

Good luck in your quest,
I ahve reason to believe that I am a descendent of Jane Kenton Laws,
sister of Simon. My gggg grandfather was a William Owens who was born
between 1760 and 1770, and died in 1839 or 1840. I have a copy of his
probated will from Mason Co., KY. I do not know his wife's name.
It is my understanding that Jane KENTON Laws' first husband was Jeremiah
Owens, and that they had a son William, and that this William's dates
roughly match mine.
What can you tell me about this line? Is it possible for you to send me
the info you have on this William OWENS, if any? I would be most
grateful. I'm very intrigued by this recent discovery and am anxious to
make a definitive conclusion as to whether I descend from this, one of
the great american families.
Thanks for your help in advance.
I am collecting all the descendants of an OWENS family, of which the
Jeremiah OWENS who married Jane KENTON is one. I have over 300 descendants
of Jeremiah -- a great deal more than the ones you currently have in your
Owens Connection section. There are also a bunch that I couldn't track any
further, and would like to learn about. Also, there are still people who
think that Jeremiah had the William OWENS who went to Champaign Co. OH,
which he did not.

We are looking for evidence of a wife and children, can you help? Currently Being Researched by Margaret Olson
I'm looking for the family of Joseph KISER b. Virginia abt 1777. His son
Charles was born in Ohio abt 1818. Charles KISER and his wife Hannah lived
in Champaign Co. Ohio; listed on page 235 of the 1850 census--Joseph KISER is
listed with the family (83 years of age b. Virginia). This family may have
been associated with the Kentons in Kentucky or Virginia as Charles and
Hannah's daughter Barbara married James Kenton's son William Henry Harrison
Kenton. This Kenton line is descended from William Kenton, the oldest son of
Mark Kenton and Mary Miller. I would appreciate any information on the Kiser
family (also seen spelled as KISOR / KIZOR /etc.).

nearly 1500, of whom more than 300 are from this Jeremiah. Nearly 50
of these I don't know much about -- like whether they had children.
This is an excerpt of 2-3 generations of descendants. I have more
info on many of these people. And seeking info on many.
How to read this display:
#4-3 The first number is the generation (guessing that John is #2).
The second is just a number to identify the person. They're not
always in order. I have left some out in this listing.
336 Desc Number of descendants that I currently have.

generation that this line goes down to (in my data).

I am NOT actively working on these families as they are so far removed but would like you to add them to you web site that I have connected to
as being from Fauquier County, Virginia.
Most of these families can be seen by visiting my web site at
click on My American Family and then click on Smith.
Joseph SMITH married Anne ANDERSON about 1736-1737 probably in
King George County, Virginia and later settled in Fauquier
County, Virginia. Anne Anderson was born about 1716 in King George
County, Virginia the daughter of Walter Anderson and Mary TRAVIS.
Joseph Smith was born about 1715 in King George County, Virginia was the
son of William Smith and Margaret ROWLEY. Joseph Smith left his will in
Fauquier County, Virginia in 1793.
1. Lucy Smith daughter of Joseph Smith and Anne Anderson married
William PEPPER and moved to Mason County, Kentucky.Lucy Smith born
about 1749 in King George County, Virginia. Apparently William Pepper
left a will in Mason County, Kentucky about 1826.
2. Hannah Smith daughter of Joseph Smith and Anne Anderson married
William BALL stayed in Fauquier County, Virginia; however, their son
Benjamin moved to Mason County, Kentucky.
2a. Their son Benjamin Ball moved to Mason County, Kentucky.
Benjamin Ball was born about 1772 married Nancy Cooke
24 Aug 1794 in Fauquier County, Virginia and moved to Mason
County, Kentucky. Benjamin died in Mason County about 1850???
Any one working on theses families? Any information on them?

and will include those later this week or next. We have these
records on computer but I have not figured out exactly how to pull
out everything I want and in the format I wanted so I just sent out
the connection first.

History of Lafayette County, MO
Biography of George KENTON
Davis Township, P.O. Aullville, MO Son of John and Judith Kenton, was born
in Missouri, Jan 29, 1840. His father was married three times and had 20
children. George was born in Carroll County, where he was educated and
raised. At the age of 25, he engaged in the mercantile business at
Milespoint three years. In the fall of 1869, he moved to the county. In 1874,
he went to Independence, MO and kept the old Independence Hotel for six
years. In 1880, he returned to Carroll county and in 1881, came to a farm of
170 acres in Davis township in this county where he is now. Nov 23, 1865, he
married Miss Sarah C. HUDSON, of Jackson County, Mo and has five children:
Eugene, Mary E., William C., Lou H. and Sara F. He is the grand-nephew of the
famous pioneer, Simon Kenton
I am related to Simon KENTON through his nephew, Jeremiah Owens, Jr., the son of Jane Kenton
(Simon's sister) and Jeremiah OWENS, Sr.
Jeremiah Owens, Jr., born July 15, 1769, Fauquier County, Virginia. Married 1. Sally (Sarah?)
Moss, December 20, 1796 2. Margaret PITMAN. born May 31, 1796 died July 17, 1753 Both
Jeremiah and Margaret are buried in the Caldwell/Irvine Cemetery, located in Boyle County,
I do not know of any children of the union of Jeremiah, Jr., and Sally MOSS. Jeremiah and Margaret
had the following children I know of:
Nancy Jane Owens, born May 2, 1818, married Nov. 6, 1834, William St. Clair Moore; died,
Boyle County, KY, Jan. 14, 1892. This couple were my great-great grandparents on my father's
Joshua P. Owens (I think the P. stood for Pauling/Pawling) born June 27, 1828 Never married,
died March 22, 1862.
Margaret F. Owens born August 3, 1829, never married, died April 28, 1878.
Both Margaret and Joshua are buried with their parents in the Caldwell Irvine Cemetery.
Margaret Pittman, second wife of Jeremiah Owens, Jr., was the daughter of Thomas Pittman and
Rachel BERRY. Rachel was a first cousin to Nancy HANKS. Rachel's mother was Rachel SHIPLEY
Berry, wife of Richard Berry, and Nancy's mother was Lucy Shipley Hanks SPARROW. Lucy and
Rachel's other sister, Mary Shipley, was married to Abraham LINCOLN, Sr., but there is some
contention as to her being the mother of Thomas Lincoln. The Shipley line connects to the
SHIPLEY / DORSEY lines of Maryland, and to England from there.
My information has come from many years of study of this whole family and the area of western
Boyle County, which was first Lincoln County, then Mercer County. Recent information concerning
the Owens connection has come from several sources. I make no claims that everything here is
correct. I do know that the basics are quite correct.
es! Please add my query. I'm looking for a Capt. STEWART who led a band of
pioneer rangers called the Stewart Spies. He was a Scot/Irishman and had at
least two sons, William and Thomas. His spouse's maiden name was NORRIS.
They came to Kentucky from Pennsylvania, Redstone Country(Fayette County).
Thanks alot, Penny Stewart
