Does anyone recognize Ira A. Pell who lived in Bloomfield Township, Walworth County, from about 1842 thru 1870 [his last census listing]? Ira supposedly drowned in the lake which now bears his surname. His wife, Mary, d. 13 Jan 1883, and their son, Nelson, 16 Jan 1882, both in Walworth County.

Any info would be appreciated. I suspect this fellow may be somehow related to my 5th great-grandmother's sister, Lydia Colvin, and her husband, Thomas Pell.
