I'm trying to find James Lafayette Owens b.abt. 1863 d.12/1933. He is my husbands GG grandfather. I have only been able to find him on a census records and a website http://www.smokykin.com/tng/http://www.smokykin.com/tng/. The years of the census record I have are 1880. On the 1880 Census it states he is living with his wife Margaret (maiden name Caughron) b.12/14/1863 d. unknown and one son H.(houston) Rosco Owens. Both James and Margaret are listed at 17 at this point. It says James was born in VA. His dad was born in Va and his mother in Tennessee. I'm looking for any information about him but I would really like to know who his parents are. I appreciate any help you can provide.
