Martha Ann Patsy Joyner
- If the names are the same, or different, it is two different women who
married Dempsey Owens and the one who married Jesse Owens.
The Patsy owens who married Jesse Owens had a daughter named Sarah, born
1816, who married Isham Gay son of Dempsey Gay and Polly Andre.
At that time, Dempsey Owens' first wife, Nancy Lester daughter of Moses
Lester, was still alive. Nancy Lester died about 1820. Nancy's children were Cealy
and Frances. There may have been others, that is all that I have.
Looks like a double dose of the name Dempseys, on the Owens and Gay sides,
and Martha Ann Patsy on the Joyner and Bruce side.
A tangled web so far.

What are your sources for Jesse and Patsy Owens being the parents of
Sally Owens who married Isham Gay? I have been trying to locate this
information. Help would be appreciated.
