Courtesy response! I'm not the original poster or related! Recommend you consider a more "likely candidate"? That was J. P. Owen son of Thomas J. Owen and Emily Allen. They lived in Barren, KY which is located in the south central part of the state. That's also where the White family lived. Jefferson Owen son of David and Sarah lived in Jessamine, KY. That's northeast of Barren and, on the map, appears to be quite a distance to travel for romance? All those mountains would have influenced me to find someone locally!(lol) View census records: 1850 KY-Barren-Division 1-Image 32, 1860 KY-Barren-District 2-Image 129, and 1870 KY-Barren-Glasgow Junction-Image 5. My candidate enumerated as J. P. in 1860 and Porter in 1870. Jeff P. Owen wed C. M. White, 13 Oct 1880, in Barren, KY. His mother's maiden name found on death certificate of brother Wesley (24 Sep 1839 - 27 Sep 1916). Makes sense?
