Comments: Dear John Owen:

My name is Vickie Ann Hayes, I'm one of the descendents of John and Charity Languell. Could you please sent me an could you please e-mail me an copy of the John and Charity Languell family bible. Because I have the original in my Grandpa safe.

John and Charity Languell, had an son name Issac Cleveland Charles Languell. I'm his Great-Granddaughter. And Issac married Ola Gouge and had one son name Paul Languell born September 16, 1918. Paul Married Elsie Hall and had two daughter one Pauletta Languell and Margaret (Jo) Languell.
Pauletta Languell has an son name Tommy Languell, Vickie Ann Black, And Ronda Hayes, When Vickie Turn 16 she had her name court ordered changed to Hayes,

Tommy doesn't have any children, Vickie Ann has 1 daughter and two sons. Ronda has one daughter name Alicia.

Jo Languell had one son name Paul McClure.

Dear John:
Thank You very much. Because that is my John Languell and Charity Family Bible. I'm the one that gave the information to someone to have so they knew who their family members are because after Charity Languell passed away the family went different ways.

I'm glad that you put it where everyone could see the information now it's fantastic.

Comments: Iam trying to find the parents of Newton (RN) Owens and brother William B. Owens. I the 1850 Cherokee County Alabama census, that shows the 2 brothers as laborers for a John McMichael. Shows that they were born in North Carolina. Newton was born around 1829-1830. I have him again with wife and children in 1860 Cherokee County Alabama census. After 2 years of research I finally found records for him in the Civil War but still no information on parents. I would really appreciate ANY information that might help me. Thanks!

Comments: Hi there! LOVE your website [] - I located photo's of tombstones taken at Spruill's Bridge Cemetery in Washington County, NC, of Belanga ancestors.

I wondered if by chance you took photo's of all the tombstones in that cemetery?

If not, do you live in that local area? Would you be willing to shoot photo's of a few graves in that cemetery for my client, Anna Davis Bateman? She or myself would be more than happy to pay you for your time and expenses. It would save me a trip down there from Raleigh.

Please call me [I'll be happy to call you right back to save the long distance charges] at 919-846-3670. I'm not a big 'email' person and seldom check messages, as I'm typically bombarded with literally thousands of messages.

The graves I need photo's of are of Dempsey Spruill, his wife Mary, Eli Woodley and wife Harriett [daughter of Dempsey and Mary], and their daughter Mary Ann Woodley that married [and is buried next to] Abel Belanga.

Anna is applying for membership into The Jamestown Society, and we would like to submit excellent quality photo's for their permanent storage in their library for preservation purposes.

If you are able to shoot these graves, you can just email them to me and I'll print them out on acid free paper, as my professional quality photo printer also utilizes acid free ink.

Many thanks in advance for any assistance you may offer!

Comments: I am in the middle of preparing a book about the historic houses of Columbia, Tyrrell County, NC, and am endlessly fascinated by the histories of the families who lived there in the past. I would particularly love information about and pictures of Nathan Owens and his first (?) wife Isabella McClees, who owned a considerable part of Columbia in the first half of the 19th century. Nathan Owens was the son of Zechariah Owens of Currituck County; his uncle was Matthias Owens of Tyrrell County; Isabella McClees was the daughter of Jesse McClees; she died of typhoid in 1880. Apparently Nathan married again later.
I also need information about William F. Owens and his wife Lydia, who lived on Main Street, Columbia from 1905 to 1921.
Any information (and, if possible!) pictures, gratefully received.

Like your site very much. Never saw the John and Charity Languell Bible before. Thanks for all your hard work and for all those who have contributed to the site.

John Languell was the son of Thomas and Elizabeth Gilman Languell/Langwell, etc., etc. Thomas, born in Kentucky in 1816, was the son of Thomas and Anna Bastin Langwell.

Other sons of Thomas, senior, b. c. 1776, were Solomon; William; John; and Hiram H. May also have had sons Peter and Timothy, but not sure about those two. Daughters were Hannah, who married Christopher Baugh; probably Elizabeth, who married 1st Joel Dobbs c. 1828 and 2nd Marcus Ridley and Mary, who married Daniel Smith in 1831 in Putnam County, Ind. Mary, Joel and Elizabeth Langwell Dobbs all joined the Deer Creek Baptist Church in Putnam County, Ind. c. 1830.

If anyone else is interested in this line, I would love to hear from them.

I was born in St. Andrews, Scotland and have lived in Oxford , England for some 16 years. There are quite a few Owens' in Scotland. My family have traditionally married Stewarts in Scotland - so much so that all male family members' middle names are Stewart and female middle names must start with an 'S'. 4 of my great uncles went to America in the 1890's only the fifth brother returned, he became my Grandfather. My brother is Dr. Lawrence Stewart Owens [ Archaeologist], my Father is Charles Stewart Owens, his 2 brothers are Jack Stewart Owens [deceased in Canada] and William Stewart Owens [lives in Sidney, Australia]. My Father is 87[lives in southern Spain] and was the youngest commissioned Major in the British Army at 23 during WW11. His great friend was Colonel David Stirling the founder of the British Special Air Service [S.A.S]. Regards, Peter

NC) Hillard Owens' wife Elizabeth "Betsy" Owens (b abt 1820) and John Thomas Owens (b abt 1817) Possible b Edgecombe Co. NC. Any suggestions to link to your Owens family? The Hillard Thomas Owens links to the James Gray Owens group. I also feel the John Thomas Owens and the Hillard Thomas Owens group were related, just know there was some type of kinship. Your homepage is fantastic, only wish we could have a link=up with the Pitt, Edgecombe, Greene, and Wilson Co. Owens groups. In the Edwin Owens Cemetery near Saratoga has lots of Owens and relatives there. Betty

Comments: Hi John,

Thanks for the info on the Cowell graveyard near Sligo' I visited it last week. As noted in a previous note, I was desended from Benjamin Cowell through Solomon via Ferbee, Whitehurst/Grice family on my mother's side and have now connected my father's family from Benjamin Cowell through William Cowell whose daughter Elizabeth married Adam Owens. Dad's family apparently moved to Tyrell from Currituck and then to Camden as both my grandfather William James Cowell and his father Edward T Cowell lived in Shiloh.

My mother's great grandfather, Charles A. Grice's home is also located in Camden on Shipyard Road. He had a shipyard on the river near the house.
