Personal Story by Maudie and John Owen Daughter, LaVada Owen. Malden, Mo. 1998. The story was relayed to John's grand daughter, Annis Gayle (Clayton) Jarrell.
Alot of people were getting sick there in Ravenden Springs, AR. And Maudie had a dream that John got real sick and died, and that she saw him in his casket. They picked up their belongings and left by train to Kansas. They went to Maudie's sisters in Wichita, Kansas, a Mattie White that married Milton Bowlin. Maudie was already sick and theywere all feeling bad. LaVada "Vada" remembers her dad calling out the window to the next door neighbor and telling her they were all sick and needed a doctor. The woman who was a Dr. went on to the hospital and sent a Dr. Black back to the house to see to them. He got a nurse to come and stay to help out. Her mother (Maudie) died and they thought John was dead three times but he finally recovered. Her mother was brought back to Ravenden Springs, Ar. by some cousins (Brown?) and she is buried there. Vada says she was 10, Lois was 7, Willie 5, and Virgil was 4 months. They were put in an orphanage for two months while her dad recovered. After he recovered he and the children went back to Ark. Maude (White) Owen is buried in the White family cemetery in Randolph County, AR. Thanks again Tony Clayton Colorado Springs, CO
