Belinda OWSLEY

ABT 1770 - ____

ID Number: I53562

  • RESIDENCE: VA & KY
  • BIRTH: ABT 1770
  • RESOURCES: See: Notes WARNING ERROR
Father: Thomas OWSLEY III
Mother: Mary MIDDLETON


Family 1 : John BRYANT

Notes


ERROR: FTM Tree #0546, CD #15 - shows also a dau "Berlinda Owsley". Don't know if she is a real person or is Mary Belinda Owlsley! See note below:


From: JALEX4954@aol.com Date: Wed, 2 Oct 2002 Subject: berlinda owsley
To: jbass@digital.net
Hi. I think we have e-mailed before. Where you have Berlinda Owsley in your list, you have her married to John Bryant and Mary Owsley married to William G. Bryant. Mary Owsley was married to John Bryant. I have been by their graves, they are buried together along Highway 27 north of Lancaster, KY, along with their two-year old daughter. The marriage and family of John Bryant and Mary Owsley (sister of the first governor of KY) are well
documented in various books and articles, and in the Revolutionary War Record of John Bryant. John and Mary Owsley Bryant were my gggg grandparents. Their son, James Guerrant Bryant, was my ggg grandfather.


Apparently FTM has a version with John Bryant married to Berlinda Owsley or William Bryant married to Mary Owsley, and this is a mistake. I wish the rest of my family was as well documented as John Bryant and Mary Owsley Bryant (numerous books and family records). I frequently get inquiries from people who are apparently going from the FTM version. It's too bad someone doesn't correct this.


You have William G. Bryant married to someone else elsewhere on your great site, My Southern Family. Berlinda Owsley, or "Mary Berlinda Owsley" as some people are now calling her is not John's wife. Maybe owsleyfamily.com could help identify who she truly was. Sincerely, Jean Alexander
FTM Tree #0546, CD #15 - shows also a dau "Berlinda Owsley" as the spouse of John Bryant. This may be a proper name or just part of her name. Ancestry.com.

Notes


See: complete story on ID 75053:


"Louis Augustus Whilden joined the Confederacy on April 15, 1861, at age 28, as a second lieutenant in Capt. Thomas Pinckney's Company of Independent Mounted Rifleman, S.C. Volunteers.


He later joined the fifth S.C. Cavalry Regiment and was a captain when he got shot May 16, 1864, in a battle in which Confederate forces kept a Union force from moving up the James River in an attempt to attack Richmond.


The effort to put up a marker for Louis Augustus Whilden started last fall with 92-year-old J.O. McClellan Jr. of McClellanville. He is Whilden's great-grandson.


"All my life, I assumed he was buried in Virginia," said McClellan, who vividly recalls visits during his boyhood by Whilden's widow, Sarah Claudia Morrison. "When I found out he was buried there (in Wappetaw Cemetery), I thought about (getting the gravestone) a few years, but never did anything about it."


McClellan told his daughter Wilhelmina McClellan Couch that he wanted to get a gravestone for Whilden. Couch, a member of United Daughters of the Confederacy, pulled together the documentation for an official marker and submitted it to the Department of Veterans Affairs.


Bud Hill, the director of the Village Museum in McClellanville, said the gravestone is overdue for a man whose family contributed greatly to the community."
