Ethel Maude Jewell is a daughter of Martin Jewell and Rosetta Vaughn, born in Michigan sometime in May, 1886, according to the 1900 census record. We will find out more specifics about her birth as time goes on. Maude has two older step-sisters, Frances A. and Loella Mae Hewitt. Maude is the middle child of the Jewell family and has two brothers, Charles and Edward J. Jewell

Maude grew up in Benzie county, Michigan. It is there that she married her first husband, Birney Leroy Stetson, April 10, 1901, in Lake Ann. Maude and Birney had two children together (despite what one family history had to say), William Franklin and Jessie May Stetson. Unfortunately, the marriage between Maude and Bernie ended in divorce.

On April 14, 1910 Maude married Cecil Adelbert Wares in Traverse City, Grand Traverse, Michigan. That same day the census enumerator stopped by to record their presence in the city.

Sometime before 1920, they moved to Tupper Lake, Franklin county, New York. Maude and Cecil were together just under ten years when Cecil unexpectedly died of pneumonia in 1920. It is not clear whether they had any children. If they did, none of the children survived their father. (some say Frank Wares is theirs)

The last record we have for Maude is her marriage to Alexander William Beaber, July 11, 1923 in Lake, Franklin county, New York. As of yet we have not found her death or burial record.
