Richard Owings was in Anne Arundel County, MD by 1685. It is not known when Richard left England for America but he probably brought his wife, Rachel, and his infant daughter, also Rachel, with him as well as a younger sister, Margaret Owings, who at once married John Acton. Acton was a boat-wright, it is presumed that Owings and Acton worked together until the latter's death in 1688 (his wife having predeceased him). On 18 Oct. 1697 he was appointed by the Governor and Council, on advice of the Assembly, to command, with the rank of Captain, the Ranger Fort at the Little Falls of the Potomac, then in Prince George's County and on the site of present Georgetown, D.C. He served until May 1701, when the Ranger establishment was discontinued. He was a carpenter in Anne Arundel Co., MD. In 1702 moved to the address of 1701 North Patapsco Hundred, Baltimore, MD.

					d: Jan 1805  Rowan/Davie Co 
From an excerpt of a manuscript by Dr. Donnell M. Owings, Dept of History, Univ. of OK; " ELIJAH OWINGS OF DAVIE COUNTY, NC. - Elijah was the oldest son of Henry Owings of "Long Acre" in Baltimore Co. MD. Born abt 1719 and died Jan 1805 (?). He married in Baltimore Co. MD about 1757, his first cousin, Hannah, daughter. of Captain John Stinchcomb (son of Nathaniel) of St. John's Parish. Hannah died prior to 1810. In 1754 Elijah Owings settled on 100 acres of "Howard's Fancy" in Baltimore Co., (the property of his half cousin, Charles Howard) where he lived during his residence in MD. He also purchased of Samuel Howard of Anne Arundel Co. on Jan 14, 1765 "The Lucky Adventure", 250 acres on the west side of Owyan's Falls in Baltimore. On May 3, 1766 he sold this tract to Clement Brooke and moved to NC with his brother, Bazeleel Owings, his brother-in-law, Norman Stinchcomb, and several members of the Howard family. He there purchased of Charles Hunter, 26 sep 1766, 520 acres of No Creek, in that part of Rowan Co. which became Davie Co. in 1835. To this Mr. Owings added 225 acres on Dutchman's Creek in the fork of the Yadkin River, which he patented, 20 Mar 1799. In Nov 1801, he sold 50 acres to his son, John. By will he bequeathed his house and orchard, with 50 acres of land, to his wife, Hannah, with reversion to his son, Henry and divided the remainder of his No Creek plantation, in roughly equal portions already laid out, among his sons; Henry, Norman, and Bezeleel. Elijah and Hannah Owings had 10 children."

John was listed as a commissioner along with Azariah Pack, Reason Pack, John Caton, and John March Jr. in the March Court 1810. Note: The origin of the name "Stinchcomb" is attributed to descendants who came from the small town of Stinchcombe, Gloucestershire, UK; a very small town neither shown nor listed in most atlases. "Comb(e)" means dweller at the deep hollow or valley. Stinchcomb is a very small town in a bowl shaped valley.

Now, you might have asked yourself jus what is AP and AB?

Well, I got this off the Internet: Surnames were not widely used until the Tudor period. Previously, a person was identified by describing him as "son of" his father ("ab" before a name beginning with a vowel, "ap" before a consonant or consonantal "i"), as in Dafydd ap Gwilym, Hywel ab Owain, Llywelyn ap Iorwerth. The later surnames were for the most part formed in one of two ways. The "ab" or "ap" could be fused with the father's name: "ab Owain", "ap Hywel", "ap Rhys", etc. became "Bowen", "Powel(l)", "Prys" (Preece, Price). Or more commonly the English possessive "s" was added to the father's name, as in Roberts, Williams, etc. Older "ap Ieuan" and "ap John" have given us not only "Johns" but in far too many instances "Jones". Medieval appellations which were not, strictly speaking, surnames - such as "Gwyn" or "Llwyd" have frozen into surnames - "Lloyd", "Gwyn(n)", "Gwynne", "Wyn(n)", "Wynne".

I colored my links Wine... in here underlining does not neccessarily mean a link.
P	=     When you see a wine colored "P" click to take you to a pic page for the individual
? 	=     Unsure of ... or Unknown
CFC	=     Click Family Cemetery

i:	=     immigration date
b:	=     birth
d:	=     death
m:	=     married
c	=     child
w)	=     wife
h)	=     husband
w/f)	=     wife's father 
w/m	=     wife's mother
h/f	=     husbands father
h/m	=     husbands mother
w/f/f	=     wife's father's father
w/f/m	=     wife's father's mother
h/f/f	=     husband's father's father
h/f/m	=     husband's father's mother
aft	=     after
abt	=     about, usually an educated guess from information acquired

Some notes came from other individuals doing research on Family Line. Like I personally have never seen the Wyatt Bible, the Foster Bible or the Eaton Bible that some of these notes are reported to come from.

Other Lines

On Grandpa Odell's side:

Odell's Fathers side:

Foster line represents Odell's Fathers Fathers line.

Owens/Caudle is Odell's Fathers Mothers line (Caudle is her Father). I haven't found much on the Caudles. I did however find bunches on Odell's Fathers Mothers Mothers line (Owens). So even if you are suppose to do the male lines once you get that far back I had to do this one since I had found so much. Hence they are combined. But you see what I mean about getting confusing? LOL

Odell's Mothers side:

Zimmerman is Odell's Mothers Fathers Line. I could call this Zimmerman/Shutt as well. Because the mother of this line (Odell's Mother's Mother) was a Shutt but I haven't found much on her yet so again, I just included what I did have on this one.

On Grandma Ruby's side:

Ruby's Fathers side:

Langston is Ruby's Fathers Fathers line. I haven't found a thing on Rubys Fathers Mothers yet. I'd welcome any help on this one!

Ruby's Mothers side:

Click is Ruby's Mothers Fathers line.

Eaton is Ruby's Mothers Mothers line.
