Carey Reed and Katherine Stowell Daniells had five children: Estee Stowell, Mary Anna, Allan Louis, Will Carleton (my grandfather), and Lucinda Augusta. Over the next several days I will be sharing the photos that I have of each.
Estee Stowell Daniells was born in 1872 in Chicago, Illinois, and died in 1960 in London, England. He married Mary Elizabeth Taft and had one child, Ruth Winefred. Estee followed in the footsteps of his father and went to work for Ingersoll Watch Company, which was founded by the Ingersolls of Wacousta. He served in Chicago and New York before being sent to London to establish the company there. This temporary assignment ended up lasting for 50 years, and he served as the president of the company. He built a mansion in north London and named it Wacousta after his hometown in Michigan. The home no longer exists, but in 1998, Sandra and I located his address and talked with one of his neighbors and a postman who fondly remembered Estee and his daughter Ruth. I have a great deal of information on Estee and his career but will do a longer feature on him at a later date.
