William Owens married Francis "Fannie" M. Branson on 23 Feb 1879 in Osage Co., MO. She was older and had been married prior to this marriage to Newton Jett. Fannie and Newton were married on 25 Jun 1871 Osage Co., MO.
William and Francis are living with her mother, Nancy Branson, as boarders on the 1880 census. Fanny has 2 children from her first marriage to JETT, Charles D-age 8, Amanuel-age 6. There is a 5 month old daughter as well. I believe this is Nevra-born Dec 1879. The name looks like it says Genewery.
Fannie and William are still married and living together on the 1900 census.
On the 1910 census William is listed as being married 2 times with this marriage being 2 years but there is no wife on the census with him. Has Blanche and a boarder in the home.
I don't see a marriage record for William after Fannie. He wouldn't have been married before Fannie because he was too young.
I also don't see a brother named Dell for William. I see his siblings as Thomas A., Frances, Stephen, James H., Charles A., Mary J., and Melissa (parents James Owens and Amanda Hasler).
I think it's possible that Fannie Branson Jett Owens son Charles D. Jett had the middle name of Delbert.
James Owens parents were Thomas Owens and Sarah "Sally" Pointer.
