Kenneth Wade Owens was born on Jun 5, 1895, in Bloomington, Monroe County, Indiana, to Charles I Owens and Edith Hall

Your sister was Verna OWENS Oakes, Findagrave memorial number 37179543. Verna died in Cascade County, Montana, in 1945.

As far as is known so far, Kenneth was married twice:

On May 28, 1936, in Great Falls, Cascade County, Montana, Kenneth W Owens (age 41 and NOT previously married)) married the previously-married Elizabeth L Rieber (age 28, divorced) (maiden name Kraatz), daughter of William Kraatz and Bianca (not sure of maiden name spelling) Vergutz.

On Mar 13, 1943, in Kitsap County, Washington, Kenneth Wade Owens married Grace Lillian Deal.

Kenneth is shown in the 1940 census as WADE OWENS and is shown as age 45 in the household of his brother-in-law, Earl W Oakes and wife Verna (Wade's sister). That census is in Cascade County, Montana. It also shows his marital status as SINGLE - it doesn't say Widowed or Divorced even though the 1936 marriage record is clearly his. Wade's mother, Edith, is also shown in the household.

When Kenneth died in 1948, he is shown as MARRIED' on the death certificate and the wife is Grace Owens. The death certificate shows he died in Tumwater, Thurston County, Washington, and that the household members were Kenneth W Owens, Grace Owens, Charles Owens (his father) and Edith Hall (Edith HALL Owens, his mother).

His mother was in the 1940 federal census in Montana so any death date would be after that. His father, however, is NOT in that household and Edith is shown as a widow, age 50, born in Indiana. Even the 1920 federal census in Great Falls, Cascade County, Montana, shows Edith as a widow. That census date was Jan 1, 1920, so husband Charles I. Owens died no later than 1919.
