Stokell family
I stumbled upon your family history grave site searching for my Stokell ancestors. It looks like these Stokells intersect with your family lines. My Stokell line leads to Thomas Stokell (b. 1832) who emigrated to Germany where my grandmother, Mary Stokell was born, in 1871. She later emigrated to the U.S., where she met and married Johannes Brugge. They settled in Connecticut.

I'm also tracking down what may be a twig on my Stokell tree. It's a long shot, but an interesting one. There is a tribe of Stokells that reached and settled in Australia. One member is of particular interest, Hannah Stokell from Durham. In 1829 she was arrested and convicted of 'larceny upon a person' and sentenced to 7 years transport to Van Diemens Land (now Tasmania). I have her birth documented in Durham, but the trail beyond that has gone cold. If you ever come across her I'd very much appreciate the information. The same of course for any other Stokell connections.

Thanks for all your work.

I do not recall if I have written to you in the past or not but I notice your name on many of the Mathern memorials and am curious about your "connection". I am intrigued by the fact that four Matherns' married four Brechts' as the same thing happened with my mothers' siblings (four marrying four from another family). One of those Matherns' was my Great-Great grandmother. Mary Eva married Adam Brecht, and their daughter Marcella married my Great grandfather John Wesley Gettis (which must have been when the Methodist Gettis' became Roman Catholic). John Wesley and Marcella's third daughter as my grandmother Antonetta Rachel. My mother Ellen Mercedes Henle Olsen was her daughter. Mother is still alive at 91 1/2 in a Nursing home back in Tama, Iowa where I grew up. I have really caught the genealogy "bug" and enjoying making connections with "relatives" etc. and doing what I can to connect the dots and put the puzzle pieces together of our ancestors for our descendants. I would love to hear from you. Bob Olsen

My home is in Maryland. Calvert is a County and Cecil is also. This family was in Calvert County, part of which later became Prince George's County.

Thank you for creating this memorial for Thomas Lamar, Jr.

My records indicate that he had a Montgomery County will and I believe that he might be buried there. Leave him where he is for now and I will see what information is available as I have never looked for him since my line is through the son John. I have 9 named children for Thomas and Martha (Blanford) Lamar.

Today, I created a memorial for the mother of Thomas, who was the first wife of Thomas, Sr. Her name was Mary but no surname is mentioned in any records that I have located.

Mary Lamar: Memorial 167014197

Please link Thomas to Mary.

Hope that this helps,

RE: Henry Newton Kennedy
Donna, great... see you have mentioned Emmazette by setting up a memorial. May bring us more info for sure.

RE: Henry Newton Kennedy
Noticed he was married to Emmazette on his death certificate. Haven't found anything about her either; wonder where there would be more info? Must have married her between 1928 & 1939. Came across Henry Newton Kennedy's interesting bio in the History of Northwest Missouri, vol 3 from a search on his 2nd father-in law, Jacob J Lindsay who was spoke of there. Might mention Emmazette in Henry's Find A Grave bio. Maybe another researcher can help solve. Keep on sleuthing🙂
