Stationed in Las Vegas with my husband and 4 kids. Doing family research in spare time. Also a huge WW2 buff. Collector of old photos!Have much info and will post as time allows. Emails and Questions and any extra Info Welcomed!
If you are interested? I can invite you to my family tree on Ancestry.com. I have the Owen's family going a ways back. I have your great grandfathers siblings as well, with some stories and photos of a few of them. Let me know. You can email me at
If you could scan the photo and wedding invitation then email them to me that would be great. Would it be a problem with me using these copies? I have lots on the Arrington side if your interested, with photos of Dr. Alvin Ray Wiley. I however haven't posted all of the photos I have though.
Yes any further info would be great on Mary Elizabeth Owens. I think she had passed away and they never had children. So there estate or very large home was either taken or given to cousins or something like that. I could get the facts from my husband and his brothers. I know that was a sore subject.
thanks for the info. I do know that was his wife, however I don't have her location of death, I do have her death date however. Do you know where she is buried? Also I think that she divorced A R Wiley before she died? Do you know if she remarried? If you have any info it would be much appreciated. Thanks Leslie

RE: VanSickle I seldom go to "find-a-grave" any more and happened to go there this morning and was shocked that a message was posted TODAY!! I have never done any comprehensive research on the Van Sickle Family. John Van Sickle was a prominent Lawyer in the Auburn area. He was from Cayuga NY, and a direct descendant of John Harris, The first white settler in that area. I am very familiar with his mansion on Grover Street in Auburn, which still exists. I played in the back yard of the mansion is a child. Mary Van Sickle Wait was a historian in Auburn the history room in the Seymour Library is named in her honor. I have several books by her on the history of the area and I have her obituary on file. From your message on find-a-grave it appears that you are in Auburn at this time. If you care to talk with me, you may can reach me by phone at 252-9446 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I publish a monthly paper on local history and You can also find the current issue on line at www.ohearnshistories.com
