RE: Fenner Family
Hello again, was wondering what the name of the Fenner Facebook site is.

RE: Fenner Family
I know I'm "long-winded" in my messages. Bonnie's parents were William Floyd Bull, Jr., 1920-2001, and his wife, Marilyn Eileen Hibner Bull. Her grandparents were William Floyd Bull, Sr., 1888-1966, and wife, Gladys Irene Marshall, 1889-1954.

RE: Fenner Family
Maj. Thomas Fenner and Dinah Borden Fenner were the parents of Thomas Fenner, born 1684, in Providence. The precise date of his death seems to be unknown, but one source gave about 1744. This Thomas was buried (Grave now unmarked, I guess) in the Major Thomas Fenner Lot, at Cranston, Rhose Island. He was married in 1710, to Mary Abbott, born Dec. 13, 1679 in R.I, and is also buried in the Maj. Thomas Fenner Lot. Mary was a daughter of Daniel Abbott and "Mad" Margaret White. Their son, Thomas Fenner, III, born between 1715/20, and died sometime after 1775, also buried in the Maj. Thomas Fenner Lot, was married to Freelove Turner, 1730-1789, daughter of Joshua Turner and Freelove Westcott. I believe they were in Old Warwick, Kent, Rhode Island at some point. At least that is where Freelove Westcott was born, in 1702. I think you have their son, Capt. Turner Fenner, 1767-1839, in your work, also that of his daughter, Sareh Fenner Leavens, and husband, Martin T. Leavens. You only have the names of two of their children listed on the Find A Grave site. Matin T. Leavens and Sarah Ann (Harp) Leavens also had a daughter, Mary Ellen Leavens, born 1848, in Ohio, and died in 1926. She was buried, with her husband, in the Lodi Memorial Cemetery, Lodi, San Joaquin, California. She married Sgt. James Rankin Bull, born May 8, 1838, at Xenia, Greene Co., Ohio, and died June 13, 1926, at Lodi, California. He fought for the Union during the Civil war. These two have Find A Grave sites.

Fenner Family
So happy to see all the Fenner family work you have put together. Although I'm not a Fenner relative, I have been researching the family tree of a dear friend who is descended from Maj. Thomas Fenner, 1652-1718. According to my research, she is a 7th grt-granddaughter of this venerable man.

RE: Stafford, Thomas
Yes, I know who does manage it and he had been informed of the error which I find so annoying when it is incorrect and others copy and re-post it.

You and I have met in past over Fenners and Manchesters. Another long running mystery.

Thanks for reading my post/ message....

Stafford, Thomas
His memorial page - I have asked for a correction!

memorial message on Thomas Stafford 1605 ...he did not marry that Eliz Rippon. A completely other man named John Stafford married her in another county even.

I have asked for a correction!

RE: Mary Fenner
Hi Richard,

It looks like it could be the same person, considering there's not much info for the one in Oak Hill.

Working from older lists I have from the Atchison Library, you can see all of the FENNERs listed:

2008 List:
Fenner George 1/23/1947 Mt. Vernon
Fenner Mary 4/17/1905 Mt. Vernon
Fenner Mrs. Mary 1901 Oak Hill
Fenner Mrs. Mary S 1900 Oak Hill
Fenner Wm. L. 12/16/1928 Mt. Vernon
----------
----------
2010 List:
Fenner George 1/23/1947 Mt. Vernon
Fenner Mary 4/17/1905 Mt. Vernon
Fenner Mrs. Mary 1901 Oak Hill
Fenner Mrs. Mary S 1900 Oak Hill
Fenner Wm. L. 12/16/1928 Mt. Vernon
----------
----------
2014 List:
Fenner George 1/23/1947 Mt. Vernon
Fenner Mary 4/17/1905 Mt. Vernon
Fenner Mary 1901 Oak Hill
Fenner Mary S 1900 Oak Hill
Fenner Wm. L. 12/16/1928 Mt. Vernon

It looks like there's 3 different Marys, although the lists have been wrong on a fairly regular basis.

The lists came from books after a survey was done back in the 80's. I have been working from a couple of the books (although I don't have the Oak Hill one) and can say that there are errors all over.

Oak Hill was originally run by an independent cemetery association, but gave it over to the City many years ago (I _think_ I heard it ws in the 60's). The City has tried to organize the records given them, but it's been a slow process.

If you want to go ahead and contact the City of Atchison anyway, let me know what you find out. If this and the one in Mt Vernon are the same, then you can go ahead and remove the photo request and then we can contact Topeka Tom and ask him to delete the memorial.

Have a great weekend :)

FranzJr.
