Searching for data on Owen Humphrey of Llwyn Du estate b. 8/12/1629 d. 9/22/1699 married Margaret Vaughan d. Capt. Rowland Vaughan. There has been much speculation that Owen had a son named Richard (somehow unaccounted for in records & books). It is believed that Richard was born approximately 1662 as he married 1682 to Rachel Robert (often mistaken as Rachel Beale). In is also believed that he came to America - probably the Welsh Tract in PA and shortly thereafter settled in Maryland (Owings Mills). Richard became a Capt. of Potomac Indian Rangers among many other activities. For some unknown reason he changed is name from Owen to Owings (experimenting with seven spelling variations before settling on the latter). However, there are several other possibilites for Richard's parentage during this period in Merioneth. It is believed that Richard was a Quaker as he signed various Certificates of Removal.
