JOHN NEWTON CONWELL was born as : JOHN NEWTON CONWILL. Look at John as : JOHN NEWTON CONWILL CONWELL born Febuary 23, 1925 in Fredericksburg - Virginia - United States of America. He lived most of his life as : JOHN NEWTON CONWELL. The name change had to due with his mother : Carrie Limerick and his uncle : Floyd Clifton Conwill Conwell born as : Floyd Clifton CONWILL also known as : Floyd Clifton CONWELL ( 1897 - 1960 ).As Johns mother Carrie Limerick Conwill died 1939 in Virginia and as Johns father : Lloyd Newton Conwill ( 1899 - 1951 ) married again 1940 in Tahoka Texas and as Lloyds brother Floyd Clifton Conwill changed his name to Floyd Clifton Conwell and as Floyd took care of the children of Lloyd Newton Conwill and Carrie Limerick - the family name of the children Floyd took care of changed as well from CONWILL into CONWELL.I was told : Floyd CONWILL believed he had a right to change his name to : FLOYD CONWELL. He may have believed a heresay story that goes to the civil war period I was told concerning the CONWILL and CONWELL name : two brothers during the civilwar with the same father and one of the brothers may have used both names - one of the brothers may have fought for the North - the other brother may have fought for the South..Floyd and Lloyd were two of the at least ten children of the Baptist or Methodist Minister - Reverand W.H.Conwill . William Henry CONWILL was born about 21 January 1861 in itawamba County Mississippi.He moved to Texas and lived a while in Oklahoma - indian Terr. He died in Texas .He was married to : M.I.Nelson. The father of W.H.Conwill was the Reverand J.C.Conwill. Jesse Calvin Conwill was born about 1834.He died 1909 or 1908 in itawamba County Mississippi.He was married to Amanda Jane Lentz born 1840.She was possibly born in Alabama.She died in Mississippi about 1910.The father of Rev. J.C. Conwill was GEORGE WASHINGTON KING CONWILL born abt. 1805.He died about 1882 in itawamba County Mississippi.He was married to ELIZABETH PRESTRIDGE born abt.1806.She died in Mississippi abt.1874.When doing genealogy research look also under : GEORGE WASHINGTON KING CONWELL. John Newton Conwill also known as John Newton Conwell grew up in Virginia and Texas.He lived a while in New Mexiko and later in Texas again and the last years of his life in Ohio.He lived a while in Lubbock Texas and a long time in Corpuschristi Texas.Johns brother died in Lubbock Texas.John was married twice.From Johns first mariage he has a daughter.From his second marriage 1959 in Corpuschristi Texas - he has a daughter and a son.Johns son was born 1961 in Corpuschristi - Nueces County - Texas - USA.John sons mother was born in a part of former Germany that became after 1945 part of Poland. Johns father : Lloyd Newton Conwill died 1951 and was buried in Tahoka - Texas. Johns mother : Carrie LIMERICK was born abt.1901 in Washington D.C. or Virginia.She died 1939 in Virginia. Lloyd Conwill died in Mckinney Texas. Lloyds brother : Floyd Clifton Conwill Conwell was buried in Tahoka Texas as well under the name : CONWILL or CONWELL.He died as : Floyd Clifton CONWELL in Corpus Christi - Texas.He was born as : Conwill.The father of Carrie Limerick was : Joseph Limerick.The mother of Carrie Limerick was a : Boutchyard.The father of Joseph Limerick was Luther Limerick.The mother of Joseph Limerick was Isabell Sullivan. A few letters of her last name are written on a paper in such a way that someone might misread it as Bullman.The letter S for example looks a little like the letter B. P.S: There is a mistake in the Texas death certificate of Floyd Clifton Conwell.He has as father listed there : E.C.Conwell.This is not correct.His father was : W.H.Conwill.Floyd was the uncle of E.C.Conwell.In Lloyd Newton Conwills death certificate his father is listed as William H. Conwill. His mother is listed as : Isabell Nichols.In the copy of a marriage paper: W.H. Conwill is listed as getting married to M.I. Nelson.I assume the mother of Lloyd is M.I. Nelson and a slight mistake possibly was made on the death certificate.In the copy of a family bible listing Lloyd , Floyd and the other children of Rev. W.H.Conwill : William is listed as married to M.I.Conwill.The birth and death dates are the same as in the Texas death certificate of Margaret Elizabeth Conwill ( Dec 22, 1866 - Aug 9 , 1927 ) .She died in Rockwall county.She is listed there as born in Mississippi.In case you have information place a message.Information provided : as is without liability.The information is not posted to offend anyone but to improve genealogy research. When doing genealogy research look under the names : CONWILL and CONWELL. Also look up the names CONWIL ; COUNWILL ; COUNWELL ; CONWYL ; CUNWILL ; CYNWYL ; CYNWYN , CONVIL and CONVILL for possible connections as spelling and speaking may have varied hunderds of years ago especially in Wales, the United Kingdom , Irland , etc.
