Sanford Tewell
Hello Trevis,

Many researchers put Sanford Tewell bd 27 April 1772, Virginia, United States with John Tewell and Mary Ann Mason bd Sussex County, Virginia, BC. They were married 22 March 1771 in Sussex, Sussex, Virginia. Do you have any information on the parents of John Tewell or where or when he was born? Some say his parents were James Tull and Rachel White. I haven't been able to verify any of this info.

Any information that you have on this line would be deeply appreciated.

Enos W. Kerr
Dear Trevis,

I am researching Carpenter's in Harrison and Floyd Co. that came from Knox
Co. Tennessee. The question is does Enos have a sister or some relation
named Mary "Polly" Kerr born in 1806 from my research, married Jacob
Carpenter in Knox Co. Tenn. In an affidavit Enos W. Kerr and Nimrod Payton are listed as witnesses to knowing Mary "PollY" Kerr personally.

Also, there was a Martha Shoemaker, that married a Calvin Carpenter, then
Elisha Harriett. My Husband is a direct descendent of Calvin, son of
Jacob Carpenter

Your response is anticipated and appreciated.

Elizabeth (Smelser) Groendyke
Greetings Trevis,
Elizabeth Groendyke (memorial #110273304) is my 3rd great grandmother. Are you also related to this Groendyke (Groenendyke) line?

If you're not related to her and would like to transfer management of her memorial to me, I'd be honored to look after her. In any case, thanks for creating her memorial!

Thank you,

Lewis Payton/Frances Payton Tuell
Dear Mr. Tuell,

I am helping a young lady with her application to join the DAR in SF; would you have knowledge of a document which would state that Frances Payton was the daughter of Lewis Payton? Many places on the internet list the names and dates of the children of Lewis Payton without mentioning the source.

Thank you so much, on behalf of my applicant.

Sincerely, Ginny

Charles Tewell b.1813 or there about in Ky is my third great grandfather. This Charles married a Mary Ann O'brian first and then Henrietta Walker in his second (my line) They moved out of Ky into Loogootee, Indiana. Charles b. 1789 was his father. However, I thought that Nancy Fitzgerald was the mother. You may contact me at

RE: Dillard
Thank you so much! My family appreciates it also. I know, Clete was sure one to love life! I ALWAYS enjoyed visiting with her. We shared so much with these grandbabies. Now Noey's little Mathew is a married man, and only yesterday Clete and I were peeking in the delivery rm. window watching him being born, crying together. Thank you for writing.

Hi Trevis. Would you let me manage the grave site for Rosa (Bierly) Tuell in St Peter's Cemetery in Buena Vista? I'd like to add material and connect her to the larger framework of the Bierly family. Thanks for your consideration.

Thank you for your response. I have shared your findings/photos with my 80 year old father who has been curious for years as to why his ancestor Lewis Payton would have been buried in an Indian Burial ground. I find your explanation to make sense. Do you know off hand if pioneer land deeds from the 1700/1800's would show Native American burial grounds or tribes on the property? I suspect that Mr.Payton knew there was a tribe on his land and decided to peacefully co-exist with them.I would love to be able to offer solid proof of that fact to my father.(My father believes that Lewis Payton had a second wife who was an American Indian..I have found no proof that he did.) :-)

Thank you for the details you put into your memorials, and thank you for transferring George and Martha to me.

Wow, thanks! I've been talking to Nancy but I hadn't asked her anything about Anna yet.

RE: Shively-Pierce
I am sorry, I must have made a typo, I checked my records and have their date as November 22, 1829 also. I would be honored of you were to transfer them, as it would make it easier to do connections to them. However, you have done a wonderful job getting information about George and Mahala that I have been searching for, and have never been able to find. Thank you! I knew such detail had to have come from a relative.

Tuell Family
Thanks! I've already gotten so much info just from looking at your grave entries. Right now though I'm focused on trying to figure out where Anna is buried, and exactly when she died. Where did you look to find the obituaries for her father and siblings? (I have only been doing genealogy since December, so I haven't learned all the tricks yet).

Also, do you know if there are any other family pictures (such as of Silas Nimrod)?

Thank you for the photo of Mary Cornwell Johnson's tombstone. I sure appreciate it. I'm interested in any Cornwell tombstones you may find along the way.
