Bio and Links
I am the second eldest child of Don & Esther Fellows (Larry, Alan, Craig, Karl, & Sandy).

Dad's parents are: Verl Fellows & stepmom Hilva Fellows of Preston ID.
Dad's mom is Cora Mitchell Clifford & stepfather Dell Clifford of Rigby ID.
Mom's parents are Orris & Sarah Wilcox of Goshen, Archer, & Herbert ID.

We grew up in Shelley ID, all attending and graduating from the local schools.

When we were kids, we lived on the same neighborhood block as our Great Grandmother, Sadie Mitchell (our dad's grandmother & mother of his mom Cora). She was always a lot of fun!. She would make up songs and sing them to us. Here are two examples:
1. Oh I went out to milk the cow, and didn't know how.
2. In my little old log cabin.

As with all families, there are priceless stories handed down through the generations. Some are documented, some are not. It's always fun to hear a colorful story about an ancestor you knew, or maybe didn't!

Dad's side of the family came from England, Scotland, and Holland. There is a family plot in the Preston ID Cemetery of the Fellows family that our Great Grandfather, William Fellows, made possible long ago. It truly is something to visit, ponder, and behold.

Mom's side of the family came from England, Denmark, and Sweden. Her dad (Orris) grew up in Cedar City UT. (His dad was John Dingman Wilcox,and John Dingman's dad was Samuel Allen Wilcox). There's a lot of LDS Church History written about the Samuel Allen Wilcox family. Many members of this family settled in the Rexburg ID area, and are buried in the Sutton cemetery in Archer ID.

Mom's parents are buried in Goshen ID (Orris & Sarah). Sarah has a brother (Peter Peterson) and sister (Esther Peterson Hansen), along with their mother (Kiza Lisa Peterson), also buried in the Goshen cemetery. This family homesteaded this area in 1900.

>>> Find A Grave contributor Alan Fellows has made a suggestion to you
>>> regarding your Find A Grave memorial for Hilva Hansen.
>>> Link to memorial:
>>> Link to contributor profile:
>>> Their suggestion:
>>> -------------------------
>>> There are several discrepancies on Find A Grave Memorial #38716782,
>>> Hilva Valborg Olson Hansen.
>>> 1. She was only married once, and that was to Verl Roper Fellows. She
>>> was his third wife. Where are you getting your information that she was
>>> married to Joeseph Lorenzo Hansen?
>>> 2. Maiden name was Hilva Valborg Olson. Married name was Hilva Valborg
>>> Fellows, and widowed by Verl Roper Fellows in 1964, upon his death.
>>> 3. Verls first marriage was to Cora Mitchell Fellows (my dads mother).
>>> 4. Wes & Debi Grossnickle have also done a Find A Grave Memorial on
>>> Hilva Fellows, complete with headstone photo (please see #55565257). They
>>> do not show record of Verls marriage to Cora Mitchell, thus their entry is

1. Hilva was his 4th wife not his third.
2. Marrage record attached below for Hansen marrage.
3. Cora was his second wife. His frist wife was Blanche Bosworth. Marriage record attached below.
4. My memorial was entered in first. I have contacted Wes and asked him to put the headstone photo on the right site.
