Re: Olwell IRE to WI
My husband is descended from a Philip Olwell (wife Eliza?), who from the 1850 WI census, appears to be the son of a Patrick Olwell.This family resided in Delafield,WI which is near your James' farm in Oconomowoc, Waukesha Co.I have a hunch (it is only a hunch) that Patrick and James were brothers. Patrick and his wife Jane lived in NY for a time based on a child being born there.I know James also lived in NY, based on WI land records.
Can you confirm any of this?Hope so!
