Stephen and Elizabeth Jelbert Bawden had, in Redruth:

2. Harriet – ch 5 March 1815 – possibly housekeeper (June 1870 US census) for English couple in Franklin Twnshp, Naughton Cnty, MI; 23-yo miner Matthew H. Dennis, 22-yo wife Eliza Jane and 1-mo son William John.
3. Edwin - ch 30 March 1817. Joined gold rush to Alaska, mined gold for wife’s ring, married Elizabeth Kitto(e) in Redruth against her father’s wishes – not in same “station”, came to Mineral Point / Linden (US) and set up blacksmith shop. They had 5 children. Edwin / Edward died of horse kick in the head in early 40 yo.
4. John- ch 18 April 1819 no info
5. Henry - ch 1 April 1821 no info
6. Elizabeth – ch 15 March 1823: came to US (no date) as part of brother Stephen’s (1 above) household in 1860. It is not known if she came with Stephen and Mary but 1860 federal census says she was part of his household. She was married and divorced at this point. She came with dtr.
7. Caroline – ch 5 October 1825. Married Thos Vivian b. 1826 in Redruth. Dtr Caroline Bawden Vivian married John Henry Harris
8. Matilda – ch 19 July 1830. Came to US (no date) possibly with sister Elizabeth. 1860 federal census says she was part of brother Stephen’s household in Rockingham Twnshp. She married Mr. Knotwell (no name, no date or location) and they had a child named M B Knotwell (Oakdale Memorial Gardens database). I'm guessing by the history of naming children, it was probably a dtr named Matilda Bawden Knotwell. The child (no gender in the records) died at 5 yrs of brain fever (cholera) and is buried with grandparents Stephen and Mary. There is no burial info for Matilda or Knotwell in Oakdale.
I'd love to trade info with anyone.
