During the Revolutionary War, David Owen was a Loyalist as were many men in each of the colonies. However, he did not fight for King George II so he was permitted to remain at home. Afain the new
generation disagreed with the old for John and Walter Owen joined the Virginia Militia and fought until Cornwallis' surrender, October 19, 1781, brought victory for the United States. 
Owen, David (I7744)
 
471 [OwenMaxineSchneider.ged]

In 1632 the eldest son, George Bland Owen was sent by his father to England for his education. It is presumed that young George Bland Owen was educated in the court of Charles I as he became one of
the King's Cavaliers and did not return to Virginia until about 1650 after Cromwell and the English Puritans had beheaded Charles I. George Bland Owen married the daughter of a Dutch trader, her
name lost to time, and she died in Childbirth but his son, William Berkeley Owen (named after the Governor of Virginia) lived.
In 1676 George Bland Owen was killed near Jamestown when with Governor
Berkeley and a collection of soldiers, he attempted to stop Bacon's Rebellion. Bacon was victorious and burned Jamestown. Governor Berkeley was called back to England by Charles II and William
Berkeley Owen lived on his Grandfather Walter Owen's plantation. He was educated by a private tutor.By 1700 the house on the Owen plantation was spacious with large halls, many windows and a large
veranda. They danced to the stately movements of the Virginia Reel and the "square" and "round" dances. Fox hunting was a great sport on the plantation. Early in the morning, as the last stars
faded men and women gathered on horseback from all the plantations to the conch shells and horn. They raced at breakneck speed when the hounds were on the trail. John Owen kept open house and
treated all guests in a hearty way. There was excellent food on bountiful tables, good beds, and good books in the library. 
Owen, George Bland (I7765)
 
472 [OwenMaxineSchneider.ged]

John Owen was educated in the new College of William and Mary, in the new capitol of Williamsburg. John Owen became a lawyer and possibly studied at Harvard also for he married a Puritan maiden in
Boston. His Grandfather, George Bland Owen, would have disapproved of this marriage very much for George Bland Owen had detested the Puritans and had died fighting against them. But "the old order
changes and gives way to the new", and John Owen was the new generation and in love with his Puritan wife. They returned to the Owen plantation in Virginia and attended the Governor's Reception at
Williamsburg and John Owen became a member of the House of Burgesses in Virginia. His Puritan wife could not resist the silk, satins and velvets from London and attired like the grand lady that she
was, she rode beside her husband in the great coach, which was decorated with the Owen's Coat of Arms and drawn by fine horses. Before them rode uniformed negro servants and behind them came
others.In 1754 John Owen was killed at Fort Necessity in a skirmish with the French, who were attempting to possess the land around the headwaters of the Ohio River. John Owen with other Virginia
planters had received from the Ohio Company and the King of England 500,000 acres near the headwater of the Ohio.

History of the axe-- He uncovered an old Indian axe, apparently of
considerable historical significance, on the old farm, and wrote the history as
follows-- Ross Hutchison lived on farm in 1905. In the spring of 1909 we
moved back to the old farm after living S.E. of Adams 3 years.
In 1908 there was a bad flood that flooded the whole bottom part of the farm.
I plowed the corn land as deep as I could. 1909. I expect I plowed deeper
than anyone had ever plowed that land.
After the flood the weeds grew up in the corn and about choked it out. 1908. As I
was planting the corn with an old fashioned checkrow planter I looked down the
side hill which is between the first and second bottom and saw this stone or
axe. I
thought it had a little too much shape to leave laying there so I got off from
the corn planter and picked up the stone. I hid it at the end of the field and
took it to the house when I went to dinner. . . .When we dug the basement for
the new
house we found a lot of arrow heads and some Indian rocks of different kinds
but none were very nice. We did find arrows all along that side hill where we
dug the barn basement after every heavy rain. I never knew of any Indian axes
of arrows
being found down where the old house was. I think that hill where the old
house is was likely made by Indians. . . That house was probably built in the
late 60's or 70's. My father first lived up south of the creen on the hill. .
. .As we
dug the basement for the new barn, I had several neighbors helping me. . .we
found white lines where a body had been buried, some shoulder and hip joints.
I knew we had found a furying ground. . .We fould no pottery nor anything
except the
Indian arrows and some broken axes. . .(In February of 1958 he exhibited the
axe at a Stone Age Fair in Bayard--many others exhibited their finds, and the
axe was apparently recognized as an important specimen.)
An interesting note is that Rolla's half sister, Laura Howland, married Ruth's
brother, Douglas. After Douglas died, she remarried twce more and she and her
husbands collectively had 22 children who called Laura "mother."

In the early spring of 1862 (perhaps this was 1860), Silas and
Clarinda, with their three small children, (who would have been, Lucretia,
Douglas and William.) boarded a flat boat on the Ohio River at Marietta to
travel to Nebraska, (which was not yet a State). It took several days to
reach the Junction of the Ohio and the Mississippi River at Cairo, Illinois.
The Family transferred to a River-Steamer, heading North. They tranferred at
St. Louis to a River Packet, a small river Vessel. Fours days later, the Packet
docked at Brownsville, NE, where a friend driving a Ox team and Wagon,
had waited for them for two days. The next Day, the family loaded into the
wagon and traveled to Gage Co where they settled into a crude one room log
Cabin.

His Obituary (The Adams Globe) published 18 Nov. 1915, states that --
"Father Bryson" died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. George Horrum,
(Sarah Ann Bryson), in Adams, at the good old age of 80 years, 4 months,
and 20 days.

The Centennial History of Nebraska Wesleyan University was published in 1988
and it contains a reprint of an article written by Ruth Bryson Bassett in 1958
recounting a train trip from her hometown of Adams to Lincoln and Wesleyan in
1890.
After discussing the details of the trip (she was 7 years old at the time), she
states: We sat down on the steps and my father told me he had put a little
money into the school. I think it was either twenty-five of maybe fifty
dollars, and I know that either amount represented a real sacrifice to a farm family in 1890.
He said to me, "It isn't much, but I wanted to give it. I shall never get the
benefit of this school. Maybe your children, Ruth, will come here. Then he
rose from the steps. . .He removed his hat and offered a prayer for the Nebraska
Wesleyan University. . .Fifteen of my father's grandchildren have attended
Wesleyan, four of whom were my own children, and it is a matter of deep
gratification to me that my son, Cecil Bassett, is at this time a member of the Board of Trustees
of Nebraska Wesleyan, and, may I add, that my oldest grandchild [Cecil, Jr.] is
a member of the class of 1958. [Note: her great grandchild, Cecil III, later
attended and graduated in 1984.]
Rolla and Ruth were married more than 66 years.
Charter member of Bayard Order of Eastern Star.
Named Scotts Bluff County Mother of the Year in 1960.
In 1939 she wrote her son Cecil that "Will Coleman traced us to the Mayflower
Circle and the Tudor Kings. I can't do it at all, but he has all the dope."
