John & Noah Wiswell not killed by Indians!
In Joseph Michael Wiswall's Genealogical Handbook, you all
read that John Rice Wiswall and Noah Wiswall, sons of John
Palmer Wiswall and Meletier Green were lost by 1824, they
"felt they had been massacred by Indians". Not true! I'm
a g.g.g.g.granddaughter of John Rice Wiswall (sp.Wiswell),
and he & his brother Noah came out West, Noah mined gold
as a '49-er in CA., the brothers split in IL., John moved
family to Carroll Co., AR., then Denton Co., TX., family
moved to CA. after John's death in 1850. After many years
of research I'm writing a book:"John Rice Wiswell and Eda Taber and Their Descendants".Any cousin out there who
claims descendency from John Rice Wiswell or Noah Wiswell?
Please contact me, thanks!-Jo
