Our group was formally organized in Atlanta on October 26, 1985 with a stated purpose of uniting the descendants of Uriah and Sarah Owen who settled in the original Wilkes County Georgia, but the tent was quickly expanded. Individual and group efforts to learn more of the Owen heritage have been going on for generations, but our Association represents the first effort to unite all the Owen branches in working toward common objectives.
We welcome all Owen descendants to our group. All branches of the Owen family, wherever they were located, are of interest to us.
As of March 2013, the membership stood at 106 families. We publish a quarterly newsletter containing analysis of various Owen family relationships as well as queries from any submitter.
Stay tuned for the next Owen Family Association event!
