Looking info for Benjamin "Bennett" Owens. Born 1817 in Saratoga which was a part of Edgecombe County at that time now it is in Wilson County. You can find him in the census in Edgecombe County thru 1840. In 1850 can't find him in any census. (Just over looked some how, because there is records of him in Edgecombe County for 1850). In 1860, 1870, 1880 census he is listed in Bailey Township, Nash County, North Carolina. Need prove of who his father and mother were..... Does anyone know where he is buried?

Bennett Owens married Elizabeth "Betsy" Page December 16, 1845 in Edgecombe bonded by Henry Gay. Betsy was born December 10, 1826 and was the daughter of Eason and Polly (Flemming) Page.
