The use of Owen is a christian name is unusual in Ireland and, in combination with Gumbleton, severely narrows down the number of people who share the name. We have assumed that the Owne Gumbleton who emigrated to America is the same person as the one baptised in 1833. The ages in the US census are a few years different, so the association cannot be regarded as definitive. It is, however, likely either that Owen Gumbleton made an error in his own age or that the first Owen Gumbleton died and the same family had another child called Owen a couple of years later.
