James Newell Twitchell - MO
Posted by: Candy Cox Date: March 14, 1999 at 08:09:01

Looking for the family of James Newell Twitchell, b. 1872 in Ash Grove, MO. He grew up in Carthage, Jasper, MO.

He married Evelyn Dement in 1897 in Joplin, Jasper, MO. They had the following children:

William Perry Twitchell b. 1898
George Edwin Twitchell b. 14 Feb 1900
James E. Twitchell b. 27 Nov 1902
Emily Elizabeth Twitchell b. 2 Jul 1903
Kate Isbell Twitchell b. 5 Oct 1910

James and family went to the Panama Canal Zone in 1910 where he helped to build the Canal and was still there in 1918. It is believed he settled in OH when he returned.

Son William Perry was born in Joplin and was still in the CZ in 1918. Known as Perry, he did marry (spouse unknown) and died prior to 1964. I think he was last living in San Antonio.

Son George Edwin, born in Joplin, also worked on the canal and was still there in 1919. No further info.

Son James E., born in Joplin, drowned in the CZ 10 Jul 1915.

Daughter Emily Elizabeth, born in Joplin, married a Dwight Darling, school superintendent in Carroll, OH. They had two girls. No further info.

Daughter Kate Isbell, born in Joplin, married a Pa(i)ge Sartell. They lived in Dayton, OH where he worked at Wright Patterson AFB. They had at least 1 boy and 1 girl. No further info.

I don't know when or where James Twitchell died, but Evelyn died 11 Mar 1918. I'm assuming this was in the CZ.

Would appreciate help "connecting the dots" on this line.
