WILLIAMS & HOWELS in Racine County Wisconsin
Posted by: Joe McDonough (ID *****0378) Date: February 02, 2003 at 10:28:35

Looking for any info on Ann Williams wife of William Williams and her sister Jane Howels wife of John P.Howels (or Howells). In 1880 William and Ann had at least seven children. Eleanor, Edward, Mary A., Jane, Emma, and William were living with them in Racine City and John who was about 25 was living with Jane and John Howels in Caledonia, in Racine County. In the 1900 census for Mt. Pleasant in Racine County Jane was listed as a widow and was living with William and Ann and their daughter Mary who was a nurse. Jane said she had never had children. William, Ann and Jane all said they were born in Wales in 1834 and all came to America in 1848. From a will and probate papers for Margaret Jones of Oneida County, NY in 1892 Ann and Jane were listed as her nieces. I have an idea where they may have come from in Wales but need to know their maidens names. Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks. Joe McDonough
