      History of Richard Hendra and Mary Rowe AND Richard Williams and Emily Jane Thomas
      as told by Bernice H. Williams 7 May 1978:
      Richard Williams and Emily Jane Thomas were married in England. They had one son, Harold before Richard came to America. Six years later, Emily followed with Harold. They lived at 634 N. 5th Street, Ishpeming, Michigan. They had 6 more children before Richard died.
      Richard Hendra was a boarder at the Williams home. Mary Rowe was the maid. They married and had 2 children, Arthur and Myrtle. Mary got homesick, so Richard brought her back to England along with the 2 children. She died while there. Richard returned with the 2 children.
      Then Richard Hendra married Emily Jane Thomas Williams. They had a stillborn boy and Roy Irving Hendra.
      The home at 634 N. 5th Street, Ishpeming, Michigan stayed in the family until the summer of 1973 when its only occupant, Stanley Williams died. It was then sold to a family by the name of Niemi.

      After studying the English census, I have determined that the best guess for our Mary is Mary E. with the father John and mother, Catherine in 1871 and Mary E. in 1881 with mother Phillippa. John and Phillippa are in the Ishpeming census in 1900. Mary is listed as being born in Phillack which is in the Redruth district. Therefore, I have determined that the civil registration for Mary Emily in Redruth Dec 1868 Vol. 5c, pg 283 is the correct one.
      Received certificate: b. 12 Dec 1868 High Lanes, Phillack - father: John Rowe mother: Catherine Rowe, formerly Skinner
