William Archabold Bagwell married (1) Mary Ware on 21 Jul 1855 in Howard Co., Indiana. Mary was the daughter of John Albertson Ware and Margaret Roberts, early settlers of West Liberty, Union Township, Howard, Indiana. Mary passed away 23 Aug 1858 just a few months after the birth of her 3rd child John William Bagwell. William then married (2) Mariah or Maria Cox 20 Feb 1860 in Howard Co., Indiana. They had two children: James Wesley, b. abt 1861; and Milton Archabold, b. 1 Aug 1863.

William's son Lewis age 3 born abt 1857 in Indiana is also listed. He is the son of Wm and Mary Ware, not Maria/Mariah Cox. In the original census the handwriting clearly says Lewis.

5. Indiana Deaths, 1882-1920. Maria Howell died 17 Jan 1917 in Jackson Township, Indiana at age 76. This doc does not state what county she was in and there are many counties in Indiana that use the name Jackson Township, but I am guessing it was Rush county.
