  1. I am writing a story pertaining to Winfield S. Jewell, 1850-1884. I have much of his family information but not all. For instance, I know that after the death of his father his widow, Mary, married Philemon P. Oakes in 1868. They were living in Grafton County in 1870. Then in 1875 Philemon remarried. When did Mary die?
