Diana, Just lost what I'd typed in. Here goes again.
First, Thanks for the info. Look forward to seeing your information!
My Daniel (jr) son of Daniel and Sarah Connell or Connely (Paul Bernander in WI gave me Connell as the name but I don't know the source. A woman who gave him info in 1994.)

In the Ohio 1820 census, Jefferson Twshp, Fayette County page 015 shows DANIEL (Sr.) with 3 males<10, 2 females<10, 1 male 26-40, 1 female 16-26, 1 female>45 and 2 servants. On the next census line is LEWIS with 2 boys<10, 1 girl< 10, 1 male 26-40, 1 female 16-26 and 1 servant. In the same township lived SOLOMON (page 012) with3 boys 10-16, 1 boy 16-18, 1 male 18-26, 1 male >45, 1 female >45, 2 girls 10-16, and 5 servants.

There may be more complete info already in a FTR file. paul would have this. Paul Bernander ( is the Sowards Columbia County WI contact and he gave me some of the following info. I don't yet have Family Tree Maker so he has not sent me the whole shebang. I will ask him to send what he has to you but will also enter what I have here.

Of interest, I was in touch with a man who is descended from Lewis/Louis Sowards and Susan Sowards through Eli Sowards (who lived 3 families down the road from Daniel in Columbia County in 1850). He sent me a file (to which I have added a few things found in my research). He is at (gary). I was interested in his line because I was convinced they were all related.

Also, I have a photograph of Daniel Sowards and Elizabeth Mott dating about 1885-1890 I would guess comparing it to another photo of Elisabeth. Also there were photos and tintypes in a family bible coming from my grandmother. Unfortunately none have names on them, but I know it to have come from Florence SOWARDS. Just don't know whether all those young and wizened faces were MOTTs or SOWARDS. Perhaps you have photographs that we can compare.
That's all for now.
Will look into getting FTR for this mac computer I just inherited.
Best, Kathy
