Hugh, the ancestor of William Tyre Owens was Elijah Owens of NC; Elijah
was in Burke and
Haywood County, NC and moved to GA. The brother of Elijah was Jesse
also with him in NC
but moving to AL.. We have a perfect DNA match between the two families.
Attached is the photo.
Below is his ancestor Elijah of NC and GA.

My hobby is genealogy and I have over 800 family files varying from a few
lines to files over 750 pages and over 1500 pages on the Ingram
family lines alone. I freely share these files by email and will
provide them in either Word Perfect, wpd, or Adobe, pdf format.
My reference file totals nearly 5000 references and totals nearly
800 pages. I also have over 8800 tombstone photos.
