American Owen Families
The following data is extracted from Owen Family Records.
There has been very little material published on the American Owen families, as families. Biographical matter on individual American Owens will, however, be found elsewhere in this volume, and Royal ancestry of some of the American Owens will be found in a special chapter.
The reader will find suggestions, in the Introduction, regarding a plan for publishing a complete Genealogy of the American Owens.
Thomas Ap Evan (Owen) came from Wales 1698 and settled at Gwynedd, Montgomery County, Pa. He died 1738. He had a son Evan, who was born in Wales 1684 and died at Gwynedd, Pa., 1747.
Miss Ruth Bryan, daughter of William Jennings Bryan, the "commoner," married Reginald Owen.
