February 15, 2013: Just found your page with the descendants of William Fennell and Mary Rathwell. This is possible ancestor of my aunts and I have been researching the line. William and Mary had another child, a son Called William This is the line I am following. Just thought you MIGHT be interested. Sincerely, Sharon Lamb ______________________ More from Sharon: Allan: Here is what I have so far on the descendants of William Fennel and Mary Rathwell. Genealogy chart for William Fennel / Fennell and Mary Rathwell the only thing that I think??? is questionable is the children of P. Fennell and Mr. Lalancette (not shown on the genealogy chart above ... Al) Other surnames: Huston / Houston / Heuston, Hannah / Hannah, Tate / Tait it stated on her father Hiram's obit that he has 7 grandchildren and I have lumped them all onto her line...wherease it is quite possible that her brother also has claim so some of the 7 ...but I didn't have any wife for him, but wanted to make sure that the 7 grandchildren got added to the line. Figured IF/and when I found out more I would them correct it. Again, hope this helps. Let me know IF there is anything more I can share or if you come across anything you think might be relevant to me. and I have no problem with you posting what I sent, don't know that I can be of much help to anyone of tell them anymore but always will to try. ...
