There is a lot of information on the web that states the name of the wife of Thomas Owsley II was Ann West. According to Ronny Bodine and the Owsley Historical society this information is erronous. Ann, wife of Thomas Owsley I, was married two times after the death of Thomas Owsley. Her second husband was John West. The confusion came from the will of Thomas Owsley when he speaks of wife Ann and brother Hugh West. The way it is worded one could assume that Hugh West was the brother of Ann Owsley thus her maiden name would be West. However, Hugh West was a half-brother of Thomas Owsley, Ann's husband. Ann's other husband #3 was John Wheeler. Ann's maiden name is not known as of yet but it is a fact that she was Ann West AFTER she was Ann Owsley.
