Re: Jonathan P. Fellers of Ohio-Kansas

In Reply to: Jonathan P. Fellers of Ohio-Kansas by Darrell Pittman of 371

I have Jonathan Polk Fellers (1859-1942), born in Findlay,
Hancock County, OH. Buried Mullinville, Kiowa County, KS.
Married Emma Amelia Snyder (1857-1944) on 23 Mar 1882.
Emma born Gilboa, Putnam County, OH; died in Liberal, KS.
They had five children:
Floyd Rollin Fellers (1883-1964) married Mary Mable Morris,
a sister of Sarah Fanny Morris (1889-1972).
Austin Wesley Fellers (1885-1923) married Sarah Fanny
Morris (1889-1972). I presume this is your line of
interest. Austin was born in DeWitt, NE. Sarah was born
in Maize, KS. They were married 8 Sep 1809. Both are
buried in Mullinville, KS. Sarah's parents were James
Wilson Morris and Ellen Chapin Armstrong.
Bertha Iona Belle Fellers (1889-1976) married Lawrence
Eugene Warden (1889-1951).
Hazel Louisa Fellers (1895-1896), born Hays, KS; died
Chester, NE.
Archie Alpheus Fellers (1897-1976) married Esther Osborne.

THe parents of Jonathan Polk Fellers were Andrew Fellers
(1822-1902) and his second wife, Sally Bergman (1821- 1859). I have her death date and Jonathan's birth date as
the same (24 Mar 1859), so she may have died in childbirth,
with the child surviving. Her parents (Jonathan's maternal
grandparents) were John Bergman (1795-1874) and Elizabeth
Polk (1798-1863). Jonathan's parents and maternal grand-
parents are buried in Powell Cem'y, Eagle Twp, Hancock
County, OH. Andrew Fellers (1822-1902) was born in
Fairfield County, OH--there is a baptism record in Betzer
Church, Bloom Twp, Fairfield County, OH. Sally Bergman
(1821-1859) was born in Licking County, OH.

The paternal grandparents of Jonathan Polk Fellers were
Henry Feller (1789-1832) and Catherine Robenolt (1789-1868). Both were born in Northampton/Lehigh County,
PA and married on 4 Oct 1808 in Fairfield County, OH.
He is buried in Betzer Cem'y, Bloom Twp, Fairfield County,
OH. Catherine is buried in Powell Cem'y, Eagle Twp,
Hancock County, OH.

I have a fairly extensive file on the descendents of Henry
Feller (1789-1832) which I will share with you if you give me
a mailing address. Morris is not my principal interest, but I
would like to see what you have on the Fellers-Morris offspring. Most of my info comes from the hardback, "Two
Hundred Years of Fellers, 1789-1989)" by Betty Poteet
Fellers. Betty is married to John Rollin Fellers, son of Floyd
Rollin Fellers (1883-1964) and Mary Mable Morris (1882-
1958). Hope this helps!
