I stumbled across your posting while searching for information on my ggranddad. I will start by saying my Granddad was born in KY and raised by Matthew Tewell and his wife Eliza Jane Leaman. My Granddad's name as I was told was Morgan William Tewell, b: abt 1859/60 in KY. (Moore County Seat KY?)Granddad died in 1948, in CO.
MY Dad-Hughston C. Tewell told me he had a half-brother and sister somewhere. That his Dad had married a Margaret Ward and had a son named Louis/Lewis Tewell and his wife Margaret had died after giving birth to twin girls. One twin (living) was named Margaret after her Mother and the other (stillborn) twin was named Cora after William's Mother's sister Cora. Margaret's sister Mary Ward raised Margaret and her brother Louis/Lewis. Dad mentioned one of the children had married a Lents or Lentz.
Granddad married Octavia Barnes in 1894 and they had 11-children, (2-died young).
I have additional information and would be willing to send to you if you'd like. Let me know, OK. My name is Freda Tewell at:
