BAWDEN: Matilda's transparencies - comes to Rockingham Twp, Scott, Iowa, gets married and dies

Query by Bawden4

Matilda (nmn) BAWDEN, youngest child and dtr of STEPHEN (nmn) and ELIZABETH GILBERT/JELBERT, was b/ch in Redruth, Cornwall, UK on 19 July 1830.

It's not known when she sailed, but 1860 Iowa federal census says she was part of brother Stephen's household in Rockingham Township, Scott County, Iowa.

She married Mr. KNOTWELL (no first name, no date, no bio - could have been 'consensual')probably in Davenport, Scott, IA. Based on historical naming, they had a daughter, only listed in Davenport's Oakdale Memorial Gardens, aka Oakdale Cemetery, as M.B. Knotwell, female, 5 yo, who died of 'brain fever' (cholera). Baby KNOTWELL is buried with uncle Stephen and wife Mary TERRILL BAWDEN in Oakdale.

Matilda Knotwell is mentioned in her father's will (1861 in Redruth) as being in North America.

No burial info as of 12-2011.
