Re: Henry NORWELL c.1800 m Boston MA
Mary, let me know if you still require the information you mention. Henry was a special character and deserves special attention. He was born in Errol, Perthshire on 31 October 1831. He moved to Glasgow and emigrated to the US of A around 1855. He married Hannah C Merritt on 12 August 1882 in South Scituate as Norwell was then named. He went on to found Shepard, Norwell & Co the Boston department store on Winter Street. Oh, yes, he also married Ellen J Lewis, an Englishwoman.
