The names/locations in Montgomeryshire, Wales and fact of marriage to Rachel Beale in 1690, are from "www.mccserv.com/genealogy/hunterp" and claims to be "from Ancestral File."
BUT I have not linked Rachel Bale as Richard Owings second wife (or as the mother of John, Ruth, Robert, Samuel and Joshua) based on research by the Owings family that says that Richard was only married to Rachel Robert.
