The Original

Sweet Owen


Surrounding  Areas 


My name is Debbie Jennings  and I am the owner and creator of this Sweet Owen website. This site is not meant to replace any of the Genweb sites, but is an independent creation of my own. I felt there was a definite gap in the available raw data for these areas. I hope you enjoy your visit and stop back often. I welcome any & all contributions of data.

FYI-- Although I will continue to collect and publish data for this site that pertains to the Morgan County areas, I will not be maintaining the website for the Morgan County Historical Society any longer. It was felt that what I had there was not adequate. Oddly though there have been no changes on their pages, and much of the data is what I placed there. But there is no notification that I am not associated with it anymore. I will accept items for Morgan County always, but not for the Society pages.
