Owens died in NJ http://www.fordham.edu/ | Fordham University is an independent university in the Jesuit tradition. It was established in 1841 as St. John's College by the Right Rev. John Hughes, Coadjutor-Bishop (later Archbishop) of New York, on old Rose Hill Manor in the village of Fordham, then part of Westchester County. The name Fordham is derived from the Anglo-Saxon words "ford" and "ham," meaning a wading place or ford by a settlement. Rose Hill is the name given to the site in 1787 by Robert Watts, a wealthy New York merchant, in honor of his family's ancestral home of the same name in Scotland. The College, which opened with a student body of six, was originally staffed by diocesan clergy. In 1846, the year the New York State Legislature granted the School a charter, Bishop Hughes recruited five Jesuits from St. Mary's College in Kentucky and other communities, and the Society of Jesus then assumed the administration of the College. The name was officially changed to Fordham University in 1907. In 1969 the board of trustees was reorganized to include a majority of non-clergy members. | Fordham University's Rose Hill campus is located at 441 East Fordham Road, Bronx, NY 10458. http://www.rutgers.edu/ | Rutgers has a unique history as a colonial college, a land-grant institution, and a state university. Chartered in 1766 as Queen's College, the eighth institution of higher learning to be founded in the colonies before the revolution, the school opened its doors in New Brunswick in 1771 with one instructor, one sophomore, and a handful of freshmen. During this early period the college developed as a classical liberal arts institution. In 1825, the name of the college was changed to Rutgers to honor a former trustee and revolutionary war veteran, Colonel Henry Rutgers. | Rutgers College became the land-grant college of New Jersey in 1864... Philip and Gertrude had, among the others, three children who did not survive to adulthood. Source: Lennon, Marguerite Wilks. "The Genealogy of the Lennon Family." An unpublished manuscript in the possession of the author.

Philip John Lennon attended St. Patrick's College in Maynouth [sic], County Kildare and graduated with a Master of Arts degree. He traveled to Canada to study at the Notre Dame seminary at Montreal, Canada. | After withdrawing from his studies for the priesthood, Philip came to the United States. He taught mathematics, Latin, and Greek at Fordham City College in New York, and Rutgers in New Jersey. He moved to Clifton, Pennsylvania, and founded the Clifton Times newspaper, later called the Clifton Lansdowne Times. | Philip married Gertrude Owens, the daughter of John and Marion Hughes Owens of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Marion was a Roman Catholic and died giving birth to Gertrude. | ....Gertrude Owens attended a boarding school for young ladies. While attending, she met Philip John Lennon and married him. Her father did not approve. She became a Catholic. Philip's parents in Ireland sent a goose feather mattress as a wedding present, according to Irish custom. | Philip and Gertrude Lennon had children. One died young of diphtheria.

    As was the custom in those days, the family saved to send their first son to study for the Roman Catholic priesthood. Philip John Lennon attended St. Patrick's College in Maynouth, County Kildare and graduated with a Master of Arts degree. He traveled to Canada to study at the Notre Dame seminary at Montreal, Canada.
    After withdrawing from his studies for the priesthood, Philip came to the United States. He taught mathematics, Latin, and Greek at Fordham City College in New York, and Rutgers in New Jersey. He moved to Clifton, Pennsylvania, and founded the Clifton Times newspaper, later called the Clifton Lansdowne Times.
    Philip married Gertrude Owens, the daughter of John and Marion Hughes Owens of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Marion was a Roman Catholic and died giving birth to Gertrude. John Owens was a successful Philadelphia lawyer, but was shot to death during anti-Catholic riots in Philadelphia, having been mistakenly identified as a Catholic. John and Marion had three children: John, Henry, and Gertrude.
