COXWELL,
Posted by: Carol Riner Everett (ID *****8889) Date: June 20, 2007 at 14:58:32
  of 379

Can someone help me out? An adopted cousin is feeling
that he isn't really part of our family, so I'm trying
to find out if his biological mother's family is tied
to us in any way.

His biological grandparents are Claude M. & Marilyn
Lee COXWELL. I don't know if "Lee" is Marilyn's
middle name or last name.

Here's what I've found so far:

1900 US Census: Bartow, Jefferson Co., GA - District

FERRELL or FUTRELL, William 32; born Jun 1867;

Maggie 9; born Feb 1891

Mattie 5; born Aug 1894
infant daughter 11/12; born Jun 1899

1910 US Census: Ivey, Johnson Co., GA - District 94;
Household 88:

children, 4 living

Mamie 10; daughter

BLANKINSHIP, Maggie 19; widowed daughter

**************************************************

Claude L & Betty Mae COXWELL and Marilyn Lee COXWELL
are all buried at Sardis Cemetery. Since I'm related
to just about everyone buried there, I figure there
should be a connection somewhere.

It looks like the elder Claude might not even be a
COXWELL. If I'm reading the Census correctly, his
mother, the former Maggie FERRELL, married a
BLANKENSHIP at age 15 and was widowed by age 19. She
appears to have married Albert COXWELL around 1919,
bringing with her two boys, Claude and Clarence. It's
interesting that they were listed as nephews in 1920
and as stepchildren in 1930.

Questions:
1. Although Claude went by COXWELL, was he actually a
FERRELL or BLANKENSHIP or COXWELL by birth?

2. Does anyone know Betty Mae COXWELL's maiden name
and parents' names? She was born 1915, died 1964.

3. Does anyone know Marilyn Lee COXWELL's maiden name
and parents' names? She was born 1937 and died 1989.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
