Eighth Generation

2087. William H. Bedwell1438 was born in Nov 1842 in Indiana.738

• I think this is the same William Bedwell that is the son of James Bedwell and Margaret Ball because the biography for Aaron Bedwell mentions that this James Bedwell "died in California and left a son named William". Also, the birth year that was previously known for said William Bedwell is the same as the one for this man, found in the 1880 California census:

• 1880 Census for Chico, Butte County, California shows William H. Bedwell, age 37, a teamster born in Indiana who doesn't know where his parents were born, as head of household including: wife Jane A., age 28; daughter Mary A., age 10; daughter Elitha (?)E., age 8; son Charles C., age 5; son William G., age 3; and daughter Lottie, age 1.

• 1900 Census for Chico, Butte County, California shows Wm. H.
