I am happy to give you the information, the only trouble is,
I was using it as an example of my frustration. This situation
is not for my Owens, but for my mother's side. Her brother,
George Wesley Bandy joined the Mormon church, I have a
letter written to me by the man who baptized him. His mother,
my grandmother, was apparently born in Oklahoma Territory

If the sum total of our lives is going to be represented by
nothing more than the dash between our birth and death
years listed on a tombstone, let’s make sure the dash is not silent.

1804, Sept 13 – Samuel KIZZIAH to Rebecca OWENS, surety David OWENS [p 099] [daughter of David per Clay Co, Ind land doc.] David died in Clay Co Indiana in 1834. He named his children and grandchildren in his will - but I never found out anything further about his origins. The Kizziahs came out of Bertie Co NC, and it appears they were Native. There was an Owen family who were also Native in Bertie Co. Chief Bille Owen signed a land treaty there in 1763. I as never able to tie David to anyone - any of the Owens, or to the Native Owens family.
