Owen(s) Surname

The surname Owen is Welsh in origin. In Welsh and old Irish records, it appears that the name was also spelled Owain. According to one source, the word Owen is not Welsh at all and a version of the Greek word "eugene" meaning "well born." The origin or correct spelling of the name in this line is "Owen" but many descendants have used "Owens" as the official spelling.

6th Generation:

Amherst Phelps Owen(s) was born on May 22, 1802 in Cannonsville, Delaware County, New York 4,5,6. He died on June 23, 1869 5 perhaps in Cannonsville, Delaware Co., New York. He is buried in the Walton Cemetery, Walton, Delaware Co., New York.

Father: John Owen
Mother: Olive Kilburn

Amherst was a farmer and spent most of his life in the vicinity of Cannonsville, New York. He was married in about 1821 to Charlotte Huyck, from nearby Trout Creek. Together they raised a family of nine children.

Amherst was primarily a farmer, but probably also worked as a blacksmith (as did three of his sons). Between the 1820s and 1840s, he lived with his family in the town of Tompkins, in Delaware County, New York. It is not exactly clear where they lived in the town, but probably in or near the village of Cannonsville. In 1833, Amherst purchased 72 acres of farmland in the neighboring town of Walton. In 1837, he sold this same land. He also apparently owned some land in the town of Tompkins. Sometime during the late 1840s, he moved away with his family. This most likely happened in 1848, when he sold five acres of land in Tompkins. In 1850, Amherst was living with his family in nearby Wayne County, Pennsylvania. They were probably still living there in 1855, when they are absent from the 1855 New York state census.

Sometime between 1855 and 1860, Amherst returned with his family to Delaware County, New York. In 1860 they were living in the town of Tompkins, with the nearest post office at Deposit (likely indicating they were in the western part of the town). In 1865, they were enumerated in the town of Tompkins, but they were probably in or just outside of the village of Cannonsville. In the 1869 county atlas, they were again found living in the town of Tompkins, but several miles east of Cannonsville, between the communities of Granton and Rock Rift. It may have been at this location that Amherst died in 1869.

Amherst married Charlotte Huyck circa 1821 in Cannonsville, Delaware Co., New York.

They had the following children:

1 Amherst Phelps Owen was born on November 2, 1823 in Cannonsville, Delaware Co., New York 6. He died on August 12, 1832 in Cannonsville, Delaware Co., New York 6. He is buried in the Walton Cemetery, Walton, Delaware Co., New York.
Considering the almost exact birth dates, Amherst and George were probably twins.
2 George Webster Owens was born on November 12, 1823 in Cannonsville, Delaware Co., New York 15. He died sometime between 1880 and 1885, probably in New York or Iowa.
He married Mary A. Burrows sometime between 1850 and 1853. (She was born circa 1836 in New York 8 and died sometime between 1885 and 1900, probably in Iowa or Illinois.)
