I am looking for information on my Grandfather and wondering if there is a connection here with your Gr. Grandfather William. I had been told (while growing up) "there were 13 children in the family; 2-children died at birth; 1-died a little later," BUT all I can find in this family, from the same Mother is 11-children. This is including the one that died at birth and the one that died a little later.
"There was a set of twins in the family BUT one had died at birth; the other children were raised by a lady by the name of Ward."
Was Margaret's twin sister's name (the one that died) Emma or Cora?
My Grandfather was born between 1859/1867(?); married Octavia Barnes in 1894. They lived in KY, then moved to OK. The 1910 Census in Vinita, OK has him listed as William Tewell. By 1919, they moved to CO. In CO, he was known as Morgan William Tewell. He was known as William or "Bill" in his younger years.
Have additional information, if you think this might be the William you are looking for. My name is Freda Tewell, I can be reached at: firstname.lastname@example.org
