Bio and Links
Family genealogist. Just doing memorials for my direct lineage currently.
My memorials will change as I update info. Copy at your own risk. What is on them now, may be different tomorrow. IF I find something is wrong, I correct it. If you find something incorrect, please let me know.
Thanks to my sisters, also Karon Dunafin, Chris Yoder and Valarie Bunn, for attaching photos for me.
I am currently trying to get all the family members connected on Find A Grave.
Descendent of John Leader, Edward Garfield. Thomas Seamans, Thomas Touchette, Lewis Jones, John "The Puritan" Bridge, Nicholas Danforth, Joseph Carder, etc.
Doing genealogy is a passion. It takes hundreds of hours, thousands of miles, and much patience waiting for that "one" record to show up.

RE: Onyx Llewellyn* Snavely
Not offhand. There were more Snavely's in w. Wythe Co. than Smyth. There is an excellent hist. room at the Wythe Co. library - w/ a large, excellent book that is mostly about the Snavely's. The Gordon Snavely family has a nice plot with a border in the old part of Mt. Carmel Cem. 2 miles north of town, which adjoins the larger present town cem. that supplanted Round Hill Cemetery in town (started on land that belonged to my gr.Uncle Arch B. Sprinkle). I met Carrie Snavely once and had a conversation with her; but the rest of that family did not stay in Marion. Do not know circumstances of Onyx L. living out his life in the state hospital; he did not marry. My mother's older sister unfortunately threw out a box full of Snavely letters and pictures from the CAL family in 1957 after my grandmother died! That is just tragic. R

RE: Onyx Llewellyn Snavely
I was born in Marion VA but raised in Charlotte NC. My grandfather (1867-1954) was 25 years younger than his sister Memphis, and younger than 3 or 4 of his nephews in CAL! My mother was a twin and born in 1909 (when my gr-parents were 42). I have a pic of her and twin sitting on Charlie Snavely's knees (he was their 1st cousin!). He and Arch drove back to VA at least 2 times, bringing oranges from his ranch in Anaheim, to see my grandfather (their uncle) and 3 sisters, plus the Snavely family n. of Marion. I am looking for a PIC of Aunt Memphis, plus her mother's name; plan to meet Edna's dau. n. of San Fran. later this fall. I think she is 93. I met Elton's dau. last October near San Diego. My gr-father was very popular and tantamount to the town dr.; that's prob. why the other Onyx was named for him. Improbably, I am in CAL Onyx's generation! Thanks again 4 your hard work! Robert

Onyx Llewellyn* Snavely
p.s. The grandfather of Onyx L. Snavely, who died young in Illinois, was Henry Lafayette ('Fate') Snavely, not 'Llewellyn'. Sorry for that error.

Onyx Llewellyn Snavely
Hi Nancy, Onyx Snavely, named for his half-uncle, my grandfather Dr. Onyx C. Sprinkle of Marion, VA, and his paternal grandfather Henry Llewellyn Snavely, was my second cousin, believe it or not. About 15 years ago, when I visited the graves of his father and uncles in the LA area, I tried to find his last residence in San Bernardino to track his family but the street (and 4 or 5 others) had been chewed up and spit out as the super-freeway went in, years ago). So I am touched to find the link to Phyllis Koch and very sorry that she and her husband have passed. Do you have any contact info for either of her sons (Phillip or Steve Koch)? I would enjoy having your email address. Thanks for your diligence and hard work, and bless your heart.
Yours truly,
Dr. Robert T. Allen III
Professor Emeritus of Music, Mary Baldwin College

thank you for the update Nancy! I am happy to know the truth about John and his wives. I agree this is truly a historical hunt to the finish, if you can ever get to the finish. I have never had the time or the resources to really dig for the info myself and I just have to trust others for my info.
Keep in touch!

Thankful Stebbins
In French Canada at that time a woman never adopted the surname of her husband. She was always referred to as (for example) Therese Steben, wife of Adrien Legrain. She would never been known as Thankful Legrain, if you look at the photo of her "monument" you will notice it lists her as merely "therese steben" Jim
