S. B. OWEN, physician, Oak Forest, Penn.—Among the successful young physicians of Greene County, Pennsylvania, we take pleasure in mentioning the name of Dr. S. B. Owen, who was born in Greene County, January 4, 1857.  He is a son of Isaac N. and Anna Owen (nee Rush), who are natives of this county, where they have spent most of their lives.  Doctor Owen was united in marriage August 28, 1879, with Laura K. Donley, who was born at Mt. Morris, Penn., August 28, 1862.  She is a daughter of David L. and Louisa Donley (nee Evans).  Her father is a native of this county, and her mother of West Virginia.  They have resided in this county since their marriage.  To Dr. S. B. Owen and wife have been born two children—Mabel D. and Edward L.  The Doctor commenced reading medicine with his father in 1879, and graduated from the Starling Medical College of Columbus, Ohio, March 6, 1884.  He began the practice of his profession at Oak Forest, Penn., the same year, where he receives a large patronage and meets with good success.
