Charles H. Owrey Family
Charles Henry Owrey and Margaret Robinson Owrey were both born and lived in New Castle, PA.
Charles Henry was the grandson of Adam Owrey for whom the town of Adamsville, PA is named.
Margaret Robinson Owrey was the daughter of Andrew G. Robinson and Fannie Edwards Robinson. She started the People's Mission in New Castle, later to become the Missionary Alliance Church. A cousin said that Margaret started a Sunday School in her living room on Sunday afternoons. From that, she went to founding the church. Charles and Margaret's sons, especially Richard, preached at the church.
Their son William, grandfather of the submitter, started working in the glass factory as a blower when he was 13 years old. His sister, Rhoda, worked at Shenango Pottery then relocated to Buffalo, NY, to work in a pottery there. Richard, Andrew, and Joseph were preachers. Richard's eldest daughter, Margaret, was a missionary/nurse in Egypt and, when World War II started, the government sent her back to the states.
