Samuel Tine Owen was the son of David Owen, born ca. 1765-70 and Mary Owen, the first record of whom is the 1830 Pike County, Alabama census. Family legend states that an Owen- Knight caravan left South Carolina ca. 1817 to go to Alabama. Recent research has found the Owens in the same area, Monroe County, Alabama as a group of people from Sumter County, S.C. whose arrival has been documented as being there in January or February 1817. This group was known as the Broughton- Couliette party, and Nathaniel Broughton’s son Edward Thomas Broughton married Rachel Winborne, the granddaughter of John Owen of Chester Co., S.C. and daughter of Dempsey Winborne, Jr. and Priscilla Owen. Winborne was also a Primitive Baptist Preacher.
On October 1817 Samuel T. Oweings signed a petition to the U.S. Congress with 363 Co-signers, inhabitants of Alabama Territory residing between and near the waters of Mobile and the Tombigee River, protesting the annexation of parts of Alabama to Mississippi. Another signer of this document was Dempsey Winborne, a Primitive Baptist Preacher, the son-in-law of John Owen of Chester County, S.C. who also was in the group that arrived in Monroe County, Alabama late 1816. The next record of Samuel Tine is in Monroe County when he signed a voucher for the sum of $1.00 he borrowed from Christopher Couliette. Also signing vouchers were David Owen, Robert Owen and John Owen. These were dated March and April 1818. (See later)
In 1821, Samuel Tine is found in Pike County, Alabama, listed among the 100 first settlers of that County. He was appointed as a commissioner to select a seat of Justice for Pike County. The deed written in long hand begins as follows: Know all men by these present that we , Samuel T. Owen, John Hanchy and Barnet Franklin, commissioners, duly appointed to select a seat of Justice for said County of Pike, for and consideration of sixty-two dollars to us in hand , paid by John C. Curtis, the receipt where of is hereby acknowledged. We do hereby acknowledge, give, grant, bargain, sell and confirm unto the said JohnC. Curtis, all those tracts or lots situated, lying and being in the town of Troy known and designated as lots no. one, three and four in Block A measuring ninety-three feet in front and depth. Each one will now fully appear by reference to the plan of said town.” The deed was written 6 October 1838 and recorded in Deed Bk A, p. 554-55.
The family of Samuel Tine. and the families of his father, David , brothers, John Bunyan and Robert Fleming Owen are listed on the 1830 census Pike County, Alabama census. Also living in same area were Kindred Karter Knight and William Sanders, his brothers-in-law.
Allen Knight, the father of Sarah Ward Knight, died in Lowndes County, Alabama in 1839. Kindred Karter Knight was the administrator. A summons was made to Sarah Ward and Samuel Tine Owen to appear before the Orphans Court in Lowndes County to show why the real estate of Allen Knight should not be sold. Each child of Allen Knight’s received $458.00 being “their full distributive share of said estate “in February of 1843. Also Samuel Tine was paid for attending Allen Knight for services as a physician for 18 days and received $25.00 in 1841 for this.
By this time he and his family had removed to Randolph County, Alabama in 1840. Samuel Tine is not found on the census there, but his father, David, is. A deed is found in Pike County where they sold land owned jointly by Samuel Tine, Priscilla S Owen, his sister, and David Allen Owen to Abram Cannon .approximately 100 acres for five hundred dollars. Kindred K. Knight, William Sanders, Daniel W. Cannon and John A. Williams sign as witnesses. The deed was dated 12 of February 1840 and recorded 14 May 1840. William Sanders also sold 39 97/100 acres to Cannon on January 29 1840 to which David A. Owen was witness. No deed was found to show when they obtained it.
The records of the Shiloh Primitive Baptist Church of Christ in Randolph County show they were in that county by Saturday June 1840 when the following were received into the church: Polly Owen, S.T. Owen, Sally W. Owen, Elender Owen, and David R. (A?) Owen. On October 3, 1840 Samuel T. Owen was appointed Clerk of the Church.
He served as Tax Collector and Justice of the Peace in Randolph County in 1843. He ran as Democrat for the Alabama Legislature and defeated Whig candidate, Jerry Murphy. He served in the Assembly in Montgomery in 1845-47. On November 2, 1850, he and other family members received letters of demission from the church. In the minutes, Samuel Tine states: “This closes my clerkship for Shiloh Church, and I hope my brethren will excuse all my imperfections. Farewell. Samuel T. Owen.” However, they did not leave immediately as he and most of his children and families were on the 1850 Randolph County, Alabama census which was not taken until December 3, 1850. The families Of his son, David Allen Owen and Kindred K. Knight and Stephen Bradley were already in Smith County, Texas as evidenced by the 1850 Census taken several months earlier.
Before they left a church was constituted by the group known as Pilgrim’s Rest, and Samuel T. was named clerk. Samuel Tine and Sarah Owen with his brother, John Bunyan Owen arrived in Henderson County sometime early in 1851. He became involved in politics soon after his arrival and was elected Chief Justice (county judge) andwas sworn in 12 August 1852 by Chief Justice J. B. Luker.
After his arrival here, Samuel T. Owen made application for a Bounty Land Claim which act was passed in 1851. He served in the Creek War as private under Captain James McDougal in Captain Denisons’s Company of the Alabama Militia from 9th June to 28 July 1836. He was drafted from Pike County, Alabama on May of 1836 and honorably discharged at Montgomery, Alabama on or about 1 July 1836.
The dates on the application and official rolls do not agree, but he first made this claim to E.L. Smith, J. P. on the 5 December 1851. The original discharge paper was given to his attorney, Wm. H. Martin, who ,on the 9 December 1851, made oath that he had received it, and in his negligence, had lost it.
On the 24th April 1855 Samuel Tine made another application for bounty land under Act of March 3, 1855 and declared that he received a warrant for 40 acres under under the former and sold it to Wm C. Bobo, but he could not remember the number. He was entitled to more land and according to official records received 120 acres No. 10 in 1856.
Samuel Tine Owen died in 1856 and is buried in the Davis Cemetery in Athens, Texas beside his wife, Sarah Ward Knight Owen who lived until 18 October 1882. A rock cairn marked the graves until several years ago when descendants placed a monument there.
From Bonner Frizzell, Excerpts from Genealogical Data, Aug. 21 1955
In 1850 a covered wagon caravan of some 150 persons, led by Samuel Tine Owen with his brother John Bunyan Owen and brother-in-law Kindred K. Knight, left Randolph County, AL and settled near Athens in Henderson County, Texas. Prior to their departure, members of Shilo Church, addiliated with the Keheukee Primitive Baptist Asso., called a presbytery and formed Pilgrims Rest Primitive Baptist Church in Randolph Co., AL. The new congregation chose Samuel Tine Owen as Secretary, called Thomas Britton as Pastor and moved as a body to Texas.
Letter to Dr. Nettie Lee Benson from Jack Owen, Athens, TX June 7 1954
Excerpts of genealogical interest copied here:
. . . compiled by “Coz” Bonner Frizzell of Palestine, Texas . . .
. . . the “tradition” information as compiled – the Larkin Owen Family record compares nearly identical with the stories handed down by word of mouth to our people, though I don’t think there is any written record to bear out the stories. . . . Suffice to say tho, our tradition tells of three brothers who came to America and Settled first in Virginia, then So. Carolina – some fought in the battle of Kings Mountain [there is a record at Kings Mountain of a John Owen fighting in thes battle of the Revolutionary War – kg] and porbably other engagements. A large wagon train of the family crossed the mountains of Eastern Tennessee into Alabama. (There is a cute story told by some, that Mountain folk – of that part of the country had never seen a wagon with four wheels under it and a large group of them gathered and was following the wagon train. One of the leaders of the wagon train being a little dubious of such a large group of natives drew up and asked what was their purpose. They said they meant no harm – they were only following to watch what happened when those wagons started down hill – they reasoned that the big wheels were gonna run over the little front wheels.
My Great Grandfather Samuel Tine Owen must have been something of a student that be had the largest library in his country and even owned a telescope to look at the stars. – He served two terms in Alabama Legislature. My Grandfather David Allen Owen was born in Randolph Co. in 1818 in a log stockade during an Indian uprising [unverified].
About 1849 or 50 a long wagon train of kin-folk and friends set out from Randolph County – presumably bound for California. (A cousin – Bessie Owen who died in Ft. Worth in 1940) said she became acquainted with some kinswoman in Altus OK about 1910 – who then an old wioman – said she well remembered the day when that wagon train pulled out. The sad farewells – the tears, sorrows and heart break, left a vivid impression upon her memory – for they thought [and rightly so] that they were going out of their lives forever.
The wagon train suffered many hardships enroute – yellow fever broke out. Many died – among them my Grandfather’s first wife. They finally were compelled to pull up here in Henderson County – It seemed like a fair land – plenty of timber, running water, an abundance of game – they decided to settle down and they anchored their church “Old Pilgrims Rest” on Gum Creek about six miles east of Athens. They were all Primitive Baptists and their shuch was organized in Alabama and they brought their authority minutes etc. with them.
This same Samuel Tine Owen was soon taking a leading part in the affairs of the county and was elected “chief justice” or as we now say County Judge in 1852 – served two terms – I believe – later in 1860 my grandfather David Allen Owen (his son) was elected chief justice and served all during the war years – until the carpet baggers took over. His grandson Charles Dennis Owen was elected wounty judge in 1910 and was the main force in building our present county court house. And your writer was honored with three terms as county clerk – 1939 thru 44 – breaking a two term tradition that had stood for thirty years.
Our family holds an annual reunion 3rd Sunday in August . . .
