It's late, and I hope that I can explain this without making a mess of things. Okay, Henry G. Fellers and his wife, Sophia, came to Texas around 1830. With them were their children, including John, Abram, Lafayette, Marion, Washington, etc. John, who was born in AL, was married twice. The first time, he married Sarah Wells, and had a fine bunch of kids. Sarah died, and he later remarried. This time to her younger sister, Alice. Alice, in turn, gave him another fine bunch of kids. My grandfather, Edward, was the youngest child of the second wife. My father, David Earl, was the youngest child of Ed, and his wife, Mary Alice Russell Fellers. Ed & Alice were married over 60 years when he passed away, and they had a total of 12 children. My dad & mom were married well over 50 years when he died.
You, as I understand, descend through Isaac. Without stopping to dig out all of my notes, I am unsure the relationship between Isaac, & John. I will have to look into this and see what I have. The problem that I always run into is the repeated use of names in the family!
