Howard and all cousins:
Have just found this forum and am pleased that we have progressed so far. Howard I met you in Salina at your family reuinon last fall. For the rest of you I am decendant of Mary Elizabeth Divelbiss and her husband Stiles Woodin. Mary was the daughter of John Quincy Divelbiss and Nancy B. Tenley both of Little Cove, Franklin County, PA they were also listed as being from Mercersberg which was actually the closest town to Little Cove which is actually just as farm community with no real town structure. Mary was the oldest of eleven children and was born in 1850. The family moved to Marshall County, IL where John Q. died in 1867 and Mary and Stiles were married in 1868. Stiles and Mary with both his family encluding his father and brothers and sisters then moved to Saline County, Kansas as did some of Mary's borthers. In 1884 the Woodin's sold their farm in Saline County and by 1888 were running a Hotel/boarding house in Lawrence, KS. Mary dies somewhat suddenly in July of 1890 and Stiles later moves to California to be not only with a grown daughter but also with his father and borthers and sisters who are all there by that time. Please feel free to respond or ask for other information and I will be happy to share what I know. It seems to me that there are a great numbers of people decendent from Micheal Divelbiss of Franklin County, PA Love to see how we are all related.
Jerry Woodin,
Caldwell, KS
