RE: Possible connection
I just saw your message. I need to remember to check for messages. I didn't see a place for email addresses. Yes, I knew of the school in Rochester, NY. I wrote to them and received a list of his churches and also a list of classmates. I didn't mention that Henry had a brother Jacob Fellman who was much more successful as a pastor. He stayed in Oak Park (chicago), IL for many years and there are plenty of references to him in the newspaper. I never did find a marriage record for Henry Fellman and Catherine Binder (Lycoming, PA) It's possible your ancestor performed their marriage or maybe introduced them. I am interested in the German publication you mention. My mother said Henry's church in Glenvil burned, but I found no official mention of this. I'll check for replies.

Possible connection
I have been looking at old newspaper articles at the library of congress website. I read that your ancestor was a preacher in Glenvil, NE. My ancestor Henry Fellman was his successor. He died, and A. Henrich preached at his funeral in 1887. I did some checking and I believe A. (andrew?) Henrich was a preacher in Lycoming, PA. This is where my ancestor's wife was from. Henry Fellman is buried in Glenvil. He wasn't there but six months before he died from pneumonia. He left little of a paper trail so I am trying to learn more by following his associates. He was born in 1825 in GE. By chance do you know anything of Henry Fellman?

I did move the memorial to the New Hope Cemetery. I can verify that there is not a stone for him as I have walked the cemetery and taken pictures there as well. Do we know where is wife is buried. It did not state his wife's name in the obit so don't know who to search for.
