I am searching the Owen ancestry.Samuel and Cynthia (Weiger/Weger/Wegger) Owen and two children, Mary and Josephine were in the Moses Ward household in 1860.
Both the Ward Family and the Owen Family name daughters Mary and Josephine (Hellen Josephine)
Surely these families were connected in some way to be in the same household!?Ward GenForum messages state Moses wife surname (which was notOwen), so what is the connection?Is there a connection to the Weiger/Weger family?
Thanks for any suggestions, connections, surmises, or whatever!This has been brick wall for 13 years until Oct. 03 when I found them in Perry Co.
