KOONS FAMILY Patsy, I'm contacting you because I recently found this note printed in The Zanesville Signal (Zanesville, Ohio) September 22, 1927 Gruber Reunion A reunion was held at the home of Mrs. Elizabeth Gruber, Park avenue, Sunday, honoring her brother George C. Koons of Bridgeport, Texas. The guests were Mr. and Mrs. B. O. Brown, son Val of Columbus; Mr. and Mrs. Edgar Koons and daughter Miriam of Roseville; A. S. Koons of Caldwell; Mr. and Mrs. W. R. Stack and children of Barbarton, and Mr. and Mrs. George B. Wolfe and daughter of Akron. Mr. Koons left Monday for his home in Texas after a ten days visit with his sister.
I believe you are related to Mr. and Mrs. Edgar Koons. A. S. Koons was my maternal grandfather & Mrs. Elizabeth Gruber was my G-grandfather's sister. Mrs. George B. Wolfe's mother was a sister to Mrs. Gruber & Mr. George C. Koons. I'm just now fitting Edgar Koons into my tree & will soon start tracing B. O. Brown. Mrs. Gruber's mother was Phebe Ann Brown. Elizabeth Koons first married Alfred Colborn & then John Gruber. George C. Koons'es middle name is Colborn.
If you would like to exchange information I'd be more than happy to!
Corbin Hudson Hello Patsy, I am trying to verify that Corbin Hudson was once married to a Helen V. Willoughby? Would you have any information on Corbin's family? The Corbin Hudson I am researching had the middle initial M. I am related to Helen's mother Harriet Ellen Willoughby (nee Thomas). Thank you. Russell G. Thompson, Farmington, NH, email@example.com
