Birth: Feb. 9, 1908
Independence County
Arkansas, USA
Death: unknown
Independence County
Arkansas, USA

Son of Elbert Gideon Owens and Lucinda Florence (Hines) Owens.

From Arkansas news paper death notice-
Infant Child of Elbert Owens died Tues. dated Aug 18, 1911.
This could refer to Willie,as he died as young child, but more likely referring to one of the twins, Cleo or Leo as they were born Aug 11 1911.
We do know Willie would have died before 1916. Elbert and Loucinda would leave AR sometime during 1915-1916 and move to Missouri.
Kirk(Kay)was the last child born in AR end of 1914: Sept. 28, 1914.
Pauline was the first child born in MO first part of 1916: Jan. 20, 1917.

Burial location of Willie and the twins unknown-

The story told passed down in family-
The twins , Cleo and Leo,were buried in a farm field.They
died when there was a flood and the cemetery was not available for burial.A farmer whose land was on higher ground allowed the family to bury the twins on his farm. It is possible that the twins brother, Willie, is buried near them.
