I'm hoping someone recognizes the names of this woman who was born in Wales and moved to Lackawanna County from Australia:

April 1892 in Olyphant, Lackawanna County, Pennsylvania JANE JONES got a license to marry VINCE MARVAL 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. (Jane Jones was probably born Jane A Manuell or Manuel. She married a William G Jones in New South Wales, Australia in 1871; William Jones died in 1884 or 1885 and Jane immigrated then to Pennsylvania.)

1900 Blakely, Lackawanna, Pennsylvania - Scott Street - with husband Vincel Marvin & 2 children: John & Mary born in Australia– Living near GEORGE KNIGHT & daughter ELIZABETH KNIGHT 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. )

1910 Blakely, PA - Main Street – Jane (Manuell Jones) Marvel with husband Vencel Murren= Marven – and children JOHN H JONES b. June 1877 AUSTRALIA and MARY JONES b.Aug 1879 AUSTRALIA.

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 EVANS. [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
