Hi to all on the list,
I am seeking the parents of George Harvey Owens who was born about
1849 in TN. George married Cynthia Ann Puckett born 1-29-1852 in
Estill County, KY on 8-15-1871. George was shot to death sometime
between 1875-1877. I don't know the circumstances of the shooting,
but it may have occurred in Powell County, KY which is where my
grandmother was born on 10-26-1872. Cynthia married Henry Allen
in Estill County, KY on 12-18-1877. Thank you, Earl in FL

This prayer request was sent to me by a friend. Please pray for this dear
lady and that precious little boy.
On Friday around 10:30 I received a visit from the Alabaster Police
Department infforming me that my 30 year old daughter and my two grand
children had been in a horrible car accident. It was a head on collision and
my daughter and 10 year old granddaughter did not survive. My 8 year old
grandson is in Children's Hospital in Birmingham, Ala. in intensive Care
after a 4 hour surgery repairing broken femur bones in both legs. He has had
pins and rods put in both legs and has been given blood but seems to be
pulling through. He does not know yet that he has lost his Mother and
sister. I will have the task of telling him that on Sunday. The doctors say
he will not be able to walk for at least two months and will have to have
extensive therapy. I am his nearest living relative and will be bringing
him home with me to live. His father committed suicide last year. Also on
Sunday, I will be going to Southern Heritage Funeral home in Pelham, Alabama
to arrange the funeral for my lovely daughter and my precious granddaughter.
Friends.....I need your help. Please send this email to everyone you know
and ask that they pray for me and my family. I can't seem to find the
strength I need to deal with this right now. I also have a 26 yr. old
daughter and son-in-law
who are with me right now, along with a multitude of friends and family but
still request your prayers. Thank you so much. KayeEdBuffey If you would
like to send her an email, you can send it to above s/n Cards for she or
Blake can be sent care of First Baptist Church, P.O. 525, Alabaster, AL,
