Parish, items #13 and #14.

In addition to those descendants listed below, Owen also had three blood relatives who settled in Memphis, Tennessee in the 1850s. They were three brothers and were also born in the townland of Cashel. I cannot determine whether the three brothers were his children or his nephews. The most prominent of the three was Patrick M Winters (1836-1895). Frank McGill, 25 Jan 2003 

"Patrick was a prominent citizen of Memphis. During his career, he was a railroad building contractor, Chief of Police for Memphis, Sheriff of Shelby County, elected Justice of Peace in Fifth Civil District, elected Magistrate for the city at large and the building contractor for the levee below Arkansas City for the US Government. The great battle of his life, which he helped to win, was for the enfranchisment of Confederate soldiers, restoring to the Southern veterans the right to have a voice in the management of their own affairs." Memphis Public Ledger, Saturday Evening, 28 Jul 1888. 

Owen married Mary Beirne in Ireland. Mary was born in Roscommon, Ireland. She died in Cashel, Co. Leitrim, Ireland. She was buried in Co. Leitrim, Ireland.
