I'm also looking for more information on this family. I suspect my George W. Owens born Feb. 14, 1847 in PA to be a grandson of this couple (William and Elizabeth) but I'm not sure who George W's parents were. George W. Owens is in the 1860 Bedford County, PA census but he wasn't living with his parents as far as I can tell. He was living with John and Susan Houck in 1860. Later he was living with John W. Growden in 1870. His daughters had names such as Barbara, Viola, Sarah, and Mary which would seem to suggest that he belonged to the Owens family of Bedford County, PA based on onomastics (naming patterns).

Elizabeth McVicker was probably a descendant of Duncan McVicker of Bedford County, PA since he's the earliest member of the family found in the census records.

Chuck
