Indentured Owens children - VA

Posted: 10 Jun 2005 7:29PM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Owens Whitely Lea
I am reviewing a microfilm of early 1800s Law Books from the Library of Virginia. I wanted to verify partial transcriptions re: children of William Owens that were indentured. My hope was that I would find documentation for the parents of Reese, Rhody, Harden, & Nicholas Owens. Attached are the 3 entries that I found.

2 Whitely children are mentioned in the first record. The notes of a researcher of the Whitely family state their father was Joseph Whitely, Jr. Then their mother, Frances, married William Owens by 1818. The researcher's notes also state that Frances' maiden name was Frances or Franky Lee/Lea, dau. of William Lee.

I would like to prove or eliminate one of these theories about the parents of Reece/Reese/Reace Owens: That his parents were John & Martha "Patsy" Fugate ... or that his father was William Owens. The attachments are the only evidence I know of that point to William as a possible parent of Reese. I know the book by Verna Mae Slone states that John & Patsy were the parents of "Rhoda and Reace." Also, a family chart of Abisha Johnson shows John Owens as Reese's father, with a birth date of 1788. But I can find no other documentation.

I have a problem with the birth date for John and Rhoda & Reese if he was their father. John would have been abt 12 when Reese was born.

Any help on this out there?
