Hi Anne-- I have downloaded some pictures that I have collected when my husband and I met with Rush Faville about 16 years ago. After reviewing some of my notes from Rush here is some detail. Geological charts from Yorkshire England shows that the Favill Family resided in that area as early as 1267. Mary Faville born 1730 died 1820 - Buried in Bound Brook Presbyterian Cemetery in New Jersey. Marked by red sandstone marker. Bureau of Statistics in Roanoke, Va. - Lynn Faville married LillianDavis (2/2/1866) son of Rush Faville in Dolgeville, New York. Later moved to Roanoke then divorced and married Audrey (2 children from second marriage named Mark and Helen). Rush stated that Thomas Favill had a Coat of Arms (knighted by Queen Elizabeth) which still exists in England somewhere. Have you ever heard of this? The group picture of (13) include the following names per Rush Faville dated about 1903 (left to right) Roy Mark (MD),Silas Thompson (Farmer), Gertrude Thompson, Ben Rush, Madge Faville, Laura Faville Slater, Edwin Slater, Ada, Lynn, Phoebel Helmer Faville, Ben Rush, Sr., Nellie Faville Stafford, Carlton Stafford (DDS) and the child is William Thompson. The picture of Faville Falls was taken by Frank Faville, Aunt Maggie, Barney and Uncle Henry Faville taken at Faville Falls in Dolgeville, NY. Rush did not know who the man in the picture was. He could not remember. The elderly man in the picture is Rush Faville (MD) who we spent one day with while living in New York who gave us a tour and the information I have sent to you. The picture w/Rush is his son Dain Faville who raise horses in NY on 200 acres. The yellow mustard house was John Reuben's house and is still standing. It was quite interesting to see street signs named after our family. The picture of two houses together one on the right was Henry Faville's house. The cemetery pictures hopefully will give you some important dates to work off of. It was called the Faville Cemetery. The white house w/green shutters belonged to John Faville's grandson. It was quite a feeling to actually visit Faville Falls just as the old picture of Frank Faville standing there. And of course.....I have attached a picture of the Leonard Faville Family last.....Leonard, Elaine, Michelle (Lynne) and Leonard. Here is our address Leonard & Elaine Faville - 804 Old Harmony Road, Newark, Delaware 19771. Please either e-mail me or mail any material you may have. I know Rush has passed away and had a daughter. He had alot of information in his attic - wonder if his daught still has it? Do you know how to reach Adele? Please take care and give our regards to any other members of the Faville family ---- Elaine
