Cowell, Coffey/Coffin, Waters families

Posted: 1264911925000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Cowell Coffey Coffin Waters
My Great-Great Grandparents lived in the area - on the 1900 Census in Dupuyer Township (now part of Pondera County). Frank P. Cowell, wife Miranda (nee Crowley), children Clarence, Jesse, Alta, Alana Cowell. Frank, born 1853 Missouri, moved to Montana sometime after 1880. In 1900 their son Clarence had his own household with wife Zetta Waters. Zetta's mother was a Coffin or Coffey. I belive Frank must have been related to area rancher Alvin Jay Cowell, probably was AJ's uncle as both were from Missouri and Frank appears to have had several brothers. Frank's son Clarence worked for the Montana Power Company many years in Great Falls as a motorman and conductor on the streetcar, and Clarence and his wife both died in LA in the `50's. Any further information on possible relatives of this family greatly appreciated.
