I suspect an Irish connection but can not prove it, yet.Family lore places a William Bewley in or around Dublin in the 1880's.So I figure there could be an Irish connection. If you care to hear the lore, drop me an email.
I know the following: William Bewley (1854-1921)and Anna Black (nee Kelley sp??)both were born in The Isles somewhere and both immigrated to and died in the US.Williams father and mother were William Bewley and Mary Cosgrove.If this helps or you come across any of these names in your research, please drop me an email. Thanks, Erik
