Can you tell which branch of the Owens family. They were a pretty large family. My ancestry is through Robert Owens as planter from West Point Clay County Ms. He had my gggrandfather (Fleming) who produced approx 8 children of which my grandmother Magnolia Owens Buford is one.

Your Owens could possibly be a brother(?). The Owens family is sight as being one of the First Settlers of the Mississippi Territory and are cited in a book of the same name. They were granted land from President Martin VanBuren
