William G Jones d 1885 Newcastle and Jane Manuell
Posted by: margaret snowman (ID *****0853) Date: August 13, 2010 at 13:39:59

Jane A. Manuell b 1854 - Wales married WILLIAM G JONES in 1871 Newcastle, NSW - #3077

I think her husband died Apr 1885 - New South Wales, AUSTRALIA #12853

I believe the following two children moved to Pennsylvania with their mother : JOHN JONES b Jun 1877 Lambton, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA #17399 & MARY JONES born Aug 1879 in Newcastle, NSW, Australia-#19372. I think there also were two other children who survived childhood and may have stayed in Australia: Henry Jones b 1874 Newcaste, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA #15832 and Thomas b. 1876 Newcaste, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA #16394

I'm hoping someone will recognize these names and hopefully can share some information on husband William Jones's parents and hopefully information on their children who remained in Australia.

The following information is included in case someone recognizes the names and is interested.

Jane A Manuell said she was born in Wales Oct 1854. (Her age varied somewhat from census to census so this is approximate.) She said her father was John and her mother Mary.

1871 Newcastle, New South Wales, Australia - marriage to William G Jones
1872 Lambton, New South Wales, Australia - son William G Jones born
1874 Newcastle NSW - son Henry Jones born
1875 Lambton NSW - Son William G Jones died (age 3) and son William George Jones was born
1876 Newcastle NSW - son Thomas Jones born
1877 Lambton son John H Jones born
1879 Newcastle daughter Mary Jones born

Apr 1884 -date she said her husband died
Apr 1885 probable death of husband William Jones: Newcastle NSW Australia

1884 Date she said she immigrated to USA - probably was 1885

April 1892 in Olyphant, Lackawanna County, Pennsylvania Jane A [Manuell] Jones got a license to marry VINCE MARVALl born Dec 1861 in Germany. Her husband's name is spelled differently in various records: Vincel, Vencil, Vence , Vinci and Marval, Marvin and later Murren.

1900 Blakely, Lackawanna, Pennsylvania - Scott Street - with husband Vincel Marvin & 2 children: JOHN JONES b Jun 1877 Lambton, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA #17399 & MARY JONES born Aug 1879 in Newcastle, NSW, Australia-#19372 - Living near George Knight & daughter Elizabeth who later moved to Australia with her brother Lambert Knight) Also living near various Jones families, possible relatives of her husband.

In 1901 in Lackawanna County, Pennsylvania Jane's daughter MARY JONES (b. 1879 Australia) married WILLIAM J EVANS ( b 24 Aug 1876 in Scranton, Lackawanna County, PA

1902 Jane's granddaughter Doris Evans was born in PA (father: William J Evans above; mother Mary Jones Evans b. 1879 Australia. Mary may have died in childbirth; she was dead before the 1910 census. )

i1910 Blakely, PA - Main Street - Jane (Manuell Jones) Marvel with husband Vencel Murren= Marven - she said 2 children - 1 living

Before 1920 husband Vincel Marval died (or was missing from records)
1920 Blakely, Lackawanna, Pennsylvania - Jane now “mother in law” (age off by 3 years - was living with son-in-law William J Evans & grandaughter Doris [William Evans married Jane's daughter Mary Jones born August 1879.]
no further records.

I would appreciate hearing from anyone who recognizes these names.
Thanks, Msnowman @ att. net
