Owen Williams , 18381924 (aged 86 years)

Owen /Williams/

"Captain Owen Williams having married first a sister of my mother and then a cousin of hers." This is taken from page 261 of Brief Glory written by D. W. Morgan.

It has taken some time but, with more records being made available, I believe I have now made the connection between the two wives of Captain Owen Williams.

Owen's first wife Elizabeth's mother was Ann Owens. Her parents were Thomas and Anne.

From what I can gather, Owen's second wife's parents were David Roberts and Eliza Owens.

Unfortunately, the census return that would confirm all this is missing!

Anyway, Eliza Owens was the daughter of the same Thomas and Anne above.

This makes the two wives of Owen first cousins.
