Benjamin Franklin Owen (1848–1917) of Seagrove, North Carolina, had two sons, James H. and Rufus. James (or his son Melvin—authorities disagree as to which) changed the family name to Owens, so there are two lines of potters in the same family, one named Owen and one named Owens, which creates some confusion.
