Descendants of Jane Jewell

Jane Jewell BD 1832-33 (birthplace unknown), daughter of John Jewell, mother's name unknown.

Jane married George Ware, August 7, 1853 in the Parish Church of Holcombe Rogus, Devon. Their marriage was recorded in the Registration District, Wellington, Somerset. George Ware was the son of Thomas Ware of Holcombe Rogus.

Jane and George had the following children: James BD 1854, Jane BD 1861, Sarah BD 1865, Mary BD 1868, John BD 1869, Martha BD 1871 and Elizabeth BD 1874.

Jane Jewell Ware was my great-great grandmother. As far as I know she never came to America. She may have married Jacob Bailey after either George's death or a divorce.

Jane's son John Ware came to America in the late 1800's and married Oluffa Anderson. John went to the Yukon Gold Rush in Alaska and later bought a farm in the State of Washington. John and Oluffa's daughter Beatrice was my grandmother and raised me from the time I was four years old.

I am interested in finding records of any ancestors or descendants of this family. I will appreciate anything you can do to help me in my search.
