Re: William Jasper Owens-OSAGE-how many wives?
Your elderly relative is obviously confused. I have had relatives of my own who have done the same thing and through my research I have discovered what is correct.

Amanda Hasler was Williams mother and Blanche's grandmother.
Fannie was Blanche's mother and was alive on the 1900 census. If Blanche's mother died when Blanche was 13 then Fannie died about 1905, which makes sense because she is not on the 1910 census.
On the marriage record of William's parents they are listed as James Owens and Lamandah Hasler.
