Pueblo County, Colorado

Contributed by Karen Mitchell.

Dr. Owen is a popular and well known physician of Pueblo, and he is, perhaps, the oldest resident homoeopathist in Southern Colorado. He was born in Indianapolis, Ind., April 23, 1844. When eleven years of age his father moved to Marshalltown, Iowa, where he received his education, being brought up in a drug store. He began to read medicine at an early age, and attended lectures at the regular schools of medicine in St. Louis and Chicago; but subsequently becoming a convert to homoeopathy, he took a course at the the Missouri School of Homoeopathy at St. Louis. He practiced his profession in Iowa about two years. He was married at Marshalltown, Iowa, in 1865, to Miss Mattie Andrews. In June, 1872, Dr. Owen came to Colorado and located at Pueblo, where he at once entered upon an excellent practice, being the first doctor of homoeopathy in the place. He returned to St. Louis in 1876, and took his last course of lectures, graduating in homoeopathy. Afterward resuming his practice at Pueblo, he has since remained steadily at that place. The Doctor has established a wide reputation, and is now doing an extensive and lucrative practice, having even more patronage than he can well respond to. He has been peculiarly successful, and at the time of this writing, is building for himself an elegant residence in the city of Pueblo.  History of the Arkansas Valley, Colorado O L Baskin & Co., Chicago, 1881
