      Chas. W. Owens worked for the Frisco RR in Monet, MO. There was an extended railroad strike in 1923 and caused some twelve families from Monet to move to Washington, IN where their railroad employment continued. They included the Paynes, Haynes (finally went back), Millers (went back later), Coatneys, Wires (went back early).

      Chas. W. Owens lived in what was called lt. house keeping in the Walker home (folks of Paul Walker) and later in the Mileys home.

      In Monet, they attended the Methodist Protestant Church on the hill.
      A. Lucille Owens Gaither only remembers attending the Free Methodist Church through influence of Walkers and Mileys.

      A. Lucille was three and Mother ten when they moved to Washington.
      C. W. Owens worked in the railroad shop in Monett until an extended workmen strike caused them to move to Washington, IN in 1923 to work at the B & O Roundhouse there.

      Chas. died at age of 48. He worked often in Ohio at Paynesville, Columbus, and Estabulla, Toledo for short periods of time. He died of a ruptured appendix - perionidus.

      He was a car repairman for RR, a carpenter. His father was also a carpenter in Monet. Uncle Boots was in Washington for awhile. He too was a B & O carpenter.

      During winter of '35-36', Charles was away from home, Lucille and Mother at home alone, and their mother got a piece of toothpick lodged in her intestines and perinoidus set in. She died in July of '36.

      Mother (Lorene) met Dad (Herald) through church. Herald and Lorene lived in the brick house with John Wesley Gines when they were first married. South of their home on Edwardsport Road, Washington, IN.

      John Wesley Gines lived at Hyatt Station prior to this. Thought the Hosses lived there too. Not sure when the Gines moved to Washington.

      "History of Stone County, Missouri, Stone County Genealogical Society 1989, p. 555.

      Map of cemetery in Gines file.


      On the back of an old sales slip, Charles had written the following: (Wanda L. Gines has the sales slip)
      Just one year ago today teh dearest flower on earth to me was taken away to be with God who gave her to me for awhile and in our ups and downs and our trials we shared with other love we had our heart ackes and so on but thank God there is some day we may join hands again around God's white throne.


      Wanda L. Gines has a well worn card holder from a billfold with 5 small photos in it that C. W. Owens (according to Lorene Gines) carried most of his life with him. The photos are not labeled so identities are questionable.
