#4-3 Jeremiah OWENS was one of the nine children of
#3-3 Richard OWENS [d 1763, King George Co. VA], who was the son of
#2-1 John OWENS [d 1712, Richmond Co. VA]. I am tracking all the OWENS descendants of this family. So far I have 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.
Ch: #5-14 +11 Child. "+" means see more below. Eleven is the generation that this line goes down to (in my data).
See also my book "Owens Family of Virginia and Kentucky", in many genealogy libraries.
