Info on Mary E. (Etta) (North Carolina) CARDWELL, please.
Posted by: Charles Rowe (ID *****1980) Date: August 09, 2012 at 10:02:53
  of 1975


I Am new to this, so please bear with me.
I am Charles Rowe of Lynchburg, VA. My mother was Lucy Elizabeth Cardwell Lewis Rowe. She was born in Stokes Couty, NC Juy 23, 1903 and lived until 8-29-1995. She died in Rocky Mount, NC. She had two brothers that I personally knew of, my Uncle Dallas Carson Cardwell Smith of Winston-Salem, NC. and my Uncle William (Rudy) Cardwell Lewis of Greensboro, NC. I did not ever see Uncle Rudy that I know of but I was well acquainted with Uncle Dallas and his family. I am trying to nail down my linkage to who I believe is my Gradmother, Mary E. (Etta) Cardwell. I have her as the daughter of Henry Hiram Cardwell (Son of Gabriel and Cynthia Humphrey Cardwell) and Sarah E. Cardwell. She was probably born in Madison, Rockingham County, NC in 1866. She probably never married but I show her in the 1900 Census as a servant (cook) for Canster and Martha Warner of Danbury, Stokes County, NC, age 34. She responds on that census that she has four children, three living. She lists two children as William R. Cardwell, age 4 and Dalles Cardwell, age 1/12. (This is, I'm sure, my Uncle Dallas Carson Cardwell Smith of Winston-Salem NC). I find Mary E. Cardwell in the 1940 Census as a servant (Cook) for the N.O. and Tom Petree household in Danbury, Stokes County, NC, age 72. My mother is listed in the 1910 Census as Lucy Caudwell (Cardwell) and she was a boarder in the household of John and Lillie Dolson, Danbury, Stokes County, N, age 7.
My Mother and her brother William were adopted at some point by a family named Lewis. The 1920 Census shows my Uncle Dallas Carson Cardwell Smith was adopted and living with Thomas B. and Sarah M. Smith of Winston-Salem, Ward 3, Forsyth County, NC. age 19.
I can find no further information that I can assign to Mary E. (Etta) Cardwell such as Death records. I can find nothing on my Uncle William R. (Rudy) Cardwell Lewis. I thought I would find WW1 draft registration or something but I haven't.
Would love to hear from any of you and hope you can help me a little. Mary E. Cardwell was in Danbury in 1940. What became of her from then to now?
Thank you very much.

Charles Rowe
