Hi, Gordon. I am a direct descendant of Henry, son of Adam. Henry died in Rusk County TX, not Rush County. Typo, I'm sure. Anyway, Henry's son, John, was my ggrandfather. John's youngest son, Edward was my grandfather, and Edward's youngest son, David Earl, was my dad.
One thing I would like to mention, (and you almost definately already know this), is that our name went through several transitions; Gefellers, G'Fellers, G.Fellers, and finally just Fellers. Many still go by the original Gefellers, of course. I can't tell you how many people have emailed, or written me to say that they noticed their ancestors had the middle initial of "G", but they can't figure out what the initial stood for. John, for instance, went by John G. Fellers.
There are several cousins that have already dedicated many, many hours to this very same project. One cousin, and his wife are retired, and travel all over the U.S. collecting data, and photographing tombstones. I'll let them know that you are also working on this project.
Best of luck!,
