Looking for any information on Jesse C. Owens, born 1844. Married Mary F. Unknown. 1880 Wise County, Texas census has him, age 35, born in Tex., Wife Mary F. 35, born in Texas, and 4 of their children. Their daughter (ggm) Rosa Bird Owens wasn't born till 1881. His mothers birthplace is listed as IL, and unknown as to fathers birthplace. Have letters written in 17 Nov. 1871 from mother, Elizabeth, in Edgerton, Mo. informing him that his father had passed away. Another letter (1871) Ridgely, Platte County, Mo. is signed your sister M. F. Owens (I suspect this is an in-law), same letter, backside of page is signed from brother A. J. Owens. Names mentioned in this letter is Tomy, Fanny, Mary Ann, Uncle Fits, Ben (suspected to be close relatives). Another letter (1871) from cousins John W. & Mary J Tunnell. Would like to find out wife's maiden name, along with paternal information.
