Bio and Links
I have been researching my family lines for more than 30 years. Some of those lines are Pate, Binkley, Wiseman, Graham, Miller, Mix, Frederick/Friedrich, Price, Smith, Hodges, Haley and so on.

Current works in progress are the compilation of the family history of Pate, their ancestors in France, and the community they lived in - Cold Friday in Harrison County, Indiana.

The book on Cold Friday is about 10 months away from publication [as of 5 February 2015]. Would like contibutions of stories, family histories and pictures. Anyone interested in contributing to this, please contact me on Find A Grave or by e-mail. Your contributions will help to add "flesh to the bones" of these fascinating people - friends and neighbors - who lived at Cold Friday, and will make it a better story. Your contributions will be credited to you.

RE: Joseph Leslie Price memorial 26209786
Yes, it looks like Joe was an Aggie. I have transferred his memorial.

It was my pleasure to find and photograph their headstone. On a different note, the research into my wife's ancestors has taken me to a William H. Proctor (1822, KY -1905, IN)who married (1) Elizabeth ? in 1846, and (2) Lucrecia J. Ford in 1888; John Ford was her first husband. Any connection to your Proctors?

RE: Price
Hi, thanks for contacting me. There are two cemeteries, Price Cemetery in the Cascade community which has 3 interments. There is another one call the Price Farthing Cemetery near Chatham which has 11 interments. I recently found out that the land I own was once owned by the Prices. My great grandfather William Herndon and his brother George Prentice Herndon purchased the land from the Price family around the 1880's. There is a cemetery on the farm with 14 interments of which my great grandfather and great grandmother are buried, William W. Herndon and Lavenia Wilson Stowe Herndon. The rest of the graves are only marked with rocks. My grandfather told me there is a lady buried there named Mary Price who was a midwife. I do know the location of her grave. When I recorded the cemetery I named it the Herndon Family cemetery, so the cemetery could have been started by the Price family.

If I understand the correction needed per your request, I can't make the correction because you built Mary's mother's memorial.....Charlie

Casper Jacob Fella (1846-1929)
I didn't quite finish what I intended to include in previous message. Casper Jacob Fella, and likely the one who is 13 on 1860 census with John/Mary Fella family, is buried in Cloverport Cemetery, Breckenridge Co., KY. His 3rd wife Lillie is linked to him, but her memorial is not yet connected to a cemetery. There is more information on Casper Jacob's memorial, but the claim that he is a child of John/Mary Mathey Fella is questionable. The information at the bottom of his memorial's biography lists his parents' names from his marriage record. I am only guessing that John Fella (first husband of Mary Mathey) may have been a relative who took Casper Jacob in, after his parents died.

By the way, I have not found official information that confirms the John Fella (1827-1864) with wife Mary, has the middle initial "C," but that initial is used in family trees.

John C. Fella (1865-1940) who married Julia Heichelbech is a son of Casper Fella, Jr. (1832-1893), and of course grandson of Casper Fella, Sr. (1796-1877), according to my findings; his middle initial "C" is on his gravestone. Please let me know if you have questions about what I've written.

Fella Family
I think I can appreciate how confusing the Fellas are to you, as they are also to me. I am only a very distant relative-of-a-relative, but have been trying to untangle what I can. Thirteen yr. old Casper on the 1860 census is listed last in the order of the John/Mary Fella family, and that is one reason why I think he is not their natural child. Then, on Casper's 2nd marriage to Margaret Racine Busch, Casper's parents are listed with names different from John/Mary Fella on the 1860 census.

Regarding John Fella, married to Mary Celina Mathey Fella Pate: John is buried in Old Frenchtown Cemetery, Harrison Co., IN, where his wife and her last husband Joseph Pate are buried. I'm slowly working with each person with same/similar given names by using their birth/death dates to keep them straight.

I've worked a little on Casper, Sr. and Casper, Jr. Fella (NOT connected to Casper J. Fella). I do know that Casper, Jr.'s wife was Barbara Metz, John C.'s wife was Julia Heichelbech (all have been submitted for links on That may be as far as I can go, but maybe you can take it further. Thanks for your work.

John C. Fella
I, too, am curious about John (?C.) Fella, and wondered about the 1860 census saying he was born in Brazil. No other information supports this, so I wonder if this is a census worker's failed attempt to spell Bayern (Bavaria, Germany)? Other records say birth in Germany. I have done some research on Casper Jacob Fella (1847-1929), which shows up as a 13 yr. old in this John/Mary Fella family on the 1860 census. This Casper, so far, seems to have been taken in by this family after his parents died (mother in Germany and father in New Orleans, according to an family tree, and parents names on Casper's marriage record to 2nd wife Margaret Racine Busch (a very distant relative-of-a-relative to me). I'm offering this to you in case it fits anywhere.
