Searching for anyone related to John and Mary Stone Downs, of Minneapolis, Mn. John, b. 1844, England, came with parents ( unknown ) to US abt 1850. Married Mary Stone and they resided first in S. Peter, later in MInneapolis, MN. He and 2 bros. ( Frank W. and Henry "Harry" ) had a business " Downs Bros." At 1715 Park Ave. S in Minneapolis. They were Contractor/stonemasons ). They had children, known is 1 son Charles who died at age 16 or 19.
John died in the Old Soldiers Home in 1927 and Mary abt. 1917. It appears he may have lived with /near the family of a Roy Fowler after her death. He is listed as the Grand Uncle. The mane Woolman appears listed as Henrietta Downs head of the household, then E llis Woolman, son -in-law and daughter Anna 44 yrs. Assume Anna is daughter of Henrietta and wife of Ellis.
Have been looking for info abt. Mary and Johns descendants. Would appreciate anythin anyone has to share.
Am descendant of Azro A. Stone, half bro to Mary Stone.
