John OWEN - b. Dec. 25, 1624, Wales; d. Feb. 18 (or 1?), 1698/9, Windsor, CT. His gravestone by the Congregational Church in Windsor reads "John Owen aged 76 years dyed February ye 18th: 1698." However, Windsor town records indicate he was born Dec. 25, 1624, and died Feb. 1, 1698/9. John may have been at New Haven, CT in 1642, but was certainly at Windsor in 1650 when he purchased a lot 12 rods by 29 rods, and married. He signed a petition to establish Killingworth in 1663, was sexton of the meeting house in 1666, was paid for clapboarding for the meeting house in 1668, and contributed to the poor in 1676. One source reports he was the son of Richard OWEN and Johanna PITT. He married Oct. 3, 1650 at Windsor, CT.
