Fiers/Marquell - updated lineage
Posted by: George Simmons Date: January 24, 2001 at 09:05:46
In Reply to: Re: FIERS and LEWIS, Greene Co., OH 1822 by Cecil E. Tharp of 90

Howdy,

Since posting message in '98 I have updated the Fiers lineage. Below you'll find the new stuff. To save space I cut it off at my mom. You'll find Marquell abt 2/3rd's of the way down, Gen 4/#16. I have a different marriage date and place for them. I found it in Jay Co. marriage records. I have wondered abt birthdate for Adam Marquell as it's two day's before marriage date. I would like to have spouses and dates for other Wm. and Melissa Marquell children if you have them.
