Thank you for visiting this new experience: The Owens Family Georgia Website! The purpose of this site is twofold: 1) To preserve the legacy of the Owens Family, primarily towards the descendants of Joe Cephus Owens (direct descendant of Seletia Owens), and 2) to share the information that was compiled in the Owens Family History Book, a rare "treasure" of history that was compiled over a number of years and finished in 1999 by the late Carolyn Faye Tift. A few years ago, one of our family members managed to take digital pictures of the book, and they are now being displayed for your viewing. You also can check here for any future updates regarding our upcoming Owens Family Reunions!

You are encouraged to send new material, corrections, and updates regarding the Owens Family. To do so, please send an email to in either an Apple Pages or Microsoft Word document. For any information, please cite the source of the material (family bible, word of mouth, family history, "according to..."; etc.).

Please feel free to peruse this site, and check back regularly, as we will be adding fresh new content! Thanks for visiting, and "remember" the moments!

Where We Came From

Although our History extends to as far back as Adam and Eve, we have only been able to trace our family history to 1845, starting with Seletia Owens.
