The Jemima Richmond Owens Family of Jacksonville, Fl Updated December 30, 2003
About Our Family Research
The family is the typical American institution. The first members came in the 1600's and the latest in 2002. The politics are as varied as is the religious preferences. Surprising to me is that no one came through Ellis Island. The educational level goes from high school drop-outs to Phds. They range from farmers, coal miners, train engineers. doctors, lawyers, teachers, etc. Generally, they settled first in the Appalachan mountain chain first, then spread "in manifested destiny" from sea to shining sea. We are intensely patriotic taking great pride in every war in defense of this country. Religous preferneces are like the politics, multilateral.
