Nathaniel Owens #74660204

on 11/27/12 you sent me a suggested correction for Nathaniel Owens buried in Arlington National Cemetery. You indicated that he was born in 1730 in Fauquier, VA and died Sept 1807. I suspect that the Nathaniel for which you've provided dates is different from the Nathaniel buried in Arlington Cemetery for two reasons:

1) Arlington Cemetery wasn't founded until 1864. Since your Nathaniel died in 1807 the death date doesn't support a burial in Arlington. Nathaniel could have been re interred so the dates aren't conclusive evidence. However,

2) The online cemetery burial records for N. B. Owens indicates that he was a pvt in the 6th US Cav. According to Wikipedia, the 6th US Cav was formed in 1861.

Given that the dates don't support the death date you've provided, I don't believe it's the same person.

Do you have additional information that might contradict the above conclusion?

I pulled up photo requests for Harford County and saw your request. If indeed the cemetery is in Columbia Maryland that is in Howard County not Harford County. Now that information must come from the original addition of the Major's Choice cemetery to the Find A Grave site. Not something you've done. But If I'm correct in my thinking and it is in Howard County the photo request might not get fullfilled.

You could try contacting the Harford County Historical Society ( to see what information they have.

I tried using Google Maps to see if I could see any obvious open spaces that weren't developed. Go to Bel Air, MD and zoom in on the town. Major's Choice is roughly bounded by Moore's Mill Road, E Broadway & Hickory Avenue. Besides a community park, I found what turned out to be some small play areas for kids. There is also a significant amount of wooded land within the described triangle.

I hope this information helps.

I have lived outside of Bel Air MD for nearly 40 years. Major's Choice was developed into a large residential community around 1980. I don't know if a family cemetery still exists but would be willing to look for you.
